Our leadership programmes

Two nurses laughing together

Leadership and Management Development Passport programme – The Leadership and Management Development Passport (LMDP) programme is aimed at leaders and managers within our Trust, and those aspiring into a leadership or management role in the future. The programme brings together our leadership and management learning and development opportunities, and resources to support staff development.

Good leadership and management are at the heart of the Trust’s culture; we believe that the way we do things is as important as what we do, and that leadership behaviours are everyone’s business. We aim to find ways to encourage people to combine their efforts, talents, insight, inspiration and enthusiasm to work together to achieve success.

The LMDP programme equips staff with the skills, tools and techniques required to lead and manage their team confidently and courageously to deliver high-quality services, and feel prepared to rise to the challenges of the future. The programme aims to develop and nurture strong leaders and managers who:

  • Can adapt continuously and quickly to the changing NHS environment;
  • Are engaged and motivated to deliver success;
  • Create a high-performing learning culture;
  • Believe, promote and act as role models for the Trust’s values; and
  • Confidently lead, motivate and manage teams and individuals.

The LMDP allows leaders, managers and aspiring managers to tailor their learning according to their own personal development needs.  Three learning programmes make up the full LMDP: ‘Bradford Manager’, ‘Management Fundamentals’ and ‘Engaging Leadership’.  Learning opportunities within the programme include a mix of face-to-face practical workshops, e-learning, one-to-one coaching and mentoring support and access to self-directed learning resources.

Senior staff development programme

Our senior staff development programme forms a yearlong secondment for community nurses to become senior community nurses. Each nurse on the programme is supported with an extensive training programme and individual mentor. The senior staff development programme provides community nurses with the skills and experience to apply for university courses to become a district nurse.
