Apply now for a place on the Digital Health and Care Leadership Programme

NHS Education for Scotland (NES) is offering a number of extra places on their eight-month Digital Health and Care Leadership Programme to care home employees.

Due to the success of the programme over previous years, it is now opening more widely across the health and social care sector.

The programme includes a series of interactive learning sessions and peer support groups to allow participants to progress a digital project within their organisation.

Care home participants will benefit from the learning, networking opportunities and leadership development elements of the programme, while also having the opportunity to feedback and influence the future of the programme for their sector.

How to apply

To apply, applicants need to have a digital project to progress in their organisation, line manager and organisational support and be able to commit to the programme session dates.
