As part of Monitor’s commitment to help NHS foundation trusts operate effectively and efficiently, we have designed a programme that helps Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) build upon their personal skills and develop a broad and comprehensive understanding of the NHS, including quality, finance, board dynamics and the strategic challenges facing the health sector. The courses are delivered by two leading business schools: Cass Business School and Manchester Business School.
Working in partnership on design and delivery, Cass Business School, Monitor and the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement have developed a 3-day programme to equip NEDs with the tools and knowhow to instigate systematic change and increase their value to the Trust.
This innovative high-impact programme ensures that NHS Non Executive Directors are well equipped technically and behaviourally to operate effectively in complex and demanding situations within the current health care service.
Whilst this programme is significantly focused on the technical skills required to identify the strategic ambitions of Non Executive Directors, a considerable emphasis is on “application in practice” in order to enable participants to make the connections between the skills they acquire through the programme, and their practical application to their functional and public roles within the Trust.
