Stepping Up programme - applications open for BAME colleagues until 1st Oct

Almost 20% of the 1.3 million people working in the NHS are from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds. Without them the NHS wouldn’t be able to function, so it’s really important that diverse talent is nurtured and developed.

Applications for our Stepping Up programme are now open for BAME leaders and aspiring leaders working in bands 5 to 7.

The programme is fully funded by the NHS Leadership Academy and designed for individuals interested in developing their leadership abilities to help them grow and progress into more senior roles. It helps to create a transformational change in equality and diversity across the healthcare sector.

Here's what Margaret Lynes, Inspection Manager, Care Quality Commission, says about it. "The Stepping Up programme was suggested to me by my line manager. It made me see things in a very different light. It gave me the confidence to constructively challenge, to continue to seek promotion, to value the input of peers.”
