Your learning Leadership

You as a Collaborative Leader programme

We are delighted to announce that the popular Leadership for Integration programme, You as a Collaborative Leader (YaCL) will run again from September to December 2023.

YaCL is a leadership development opportunity for a mix of social service and health professionals working in integration, to develop the skills and knowledge to lead effectively across integrated settings where good collaboration is essential.

It is an interactive online learning programme made up of a mix of self-directed learning, reflective practice, online workshops, smaller online peer thinking groups and one to one coaching.

This programme is an opportunity to:

  • reflect on your own leadership style and learn new leadership models and theories
  • improve confidence around influencing effectively in collaborative settings
  • understand how to build better cross sector relationships
  • learn from speakers and peers from integrated health and social care settings
  • engage in reflective practice and peer support.

The closing date for applications is 31 May 2023.

You can find more information and a link to the application form here.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss your suitability for the programme, please contact

Leadership for Integration is a partnership project with the Scottish Social Services Council, the Royal College of General Practitioners and NHS Education for Scotland.
