Mary Seacole Local Programme

The Mary Seacole Local Programme is a six-month leadership development programme designed by the NHS Leadership Academy in partnership with global experts the Hay Group, to develop knowledge and skills in leadership and management.

The concept of learning how to be a leader when you’re in the thick of your day to day responsibilities can seem rather abstract, but the Mary Seacole Local Programme is grounded in reality and results in real workplace application.

It aims to provide the balance between learning leadership theory and putting it into practice. Designed for those looking to move into their first formal leadership role, or those new to first time leadership, it empowers people to turn their individual success into consistent team success and to champion compassionate patient care.
