Welcome to the CPPE Leading for change programme. This fully funded programme is open to mid-to-senior grade pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who work in primary or secondary care, who have completed their foundation level practice and are working at, or towards, advanced level practice.
The programme takes a blended learning approach delivered over six months, and consists of four online modules supported by face-to-face workshops and workplace-based learning experiences.
The aim of the programme is to bridge the gap between foundation and advanced leadership practice in order to develop leaders across the pharmacy profession. It will also equip participants with the knowledge and skills to take on challenges effectively and lead in medicines optimisation to deliver better patient outcomes.
On completion of the programme participants should be able to:
Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who work in primary or secondary care, who have completed their foundation level practice and are working at, or towards, advanced level practice.
We expect participants to have a foundation in leadership, either through completion of a previous leadership programme or through a number of years' experience as a leader.
Suggested prior learning includes the NHS Leadership Academy’s Edward Jenner programme, CPPE programmes such as Leadership for pharmacy professionals and Life skills - developing your potential e-course, or equivalent in-house training.

You will be provided with an opportunity to attend a regional workshop on presentation skills; this is an optional part of the programme and therefore places are limited. You will be provided with more information when you enrol on the programme.
You will be provided with an opportunity to attend an insight day at a national organisation, for example NHS England and NHS Improvement. This is an optional part of the programme and therefore places are limited. More information on the insight days, including dates, venues and how to book a place, will be provided when you enrol on the programme.
A key part of the programme will be to build networks in pharmacy and the wider NHS. This will be facilitated by the workshops and insight days during the programme.
Those who are geographically close to each other may also choose to set up local learning sets to allow further networking and sharing of best practice in a region.
Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians participating in the programme will be required to find a mentor. This will be a senior leader who can act as a sounding board and provide support and guidance to further develop their career and networks.
More information about the programme can be found in the programme handbook
