About the Advancing Change Team (ACT)

The Advancing Change Team (ACT) has developed a number of practical developmental learning programmes and master classes to help NHS colleagues and their partner organisations to plan and deliver both large scale transformational change and service improvement and redesign. 

Aimed at leaders, managers and frontline colleagues in health and social care organisations, the programmes have been created at different levels: practitioner, advanced practitioner, and trainer, designed to support the development of senior leaders delivering complex change and improvement teams in implementing change.

The syllabus is delivered by our renowned team of national and international experts, using both face-to-face and online learning tools and techniques. Participants who go through assessment will achieve a recognised certificate of attainment and use evidence-based and tested resources that they can then introduce across their own organisations.

The ACT programmes cover these key areas:

Leading transformational change - supporting teams and individuals to build capability and deliver complex change.

Transformation Essentials - a pilot programme that provides self-directed learning resources and evaluates their impact in supporting transformation teams.

Quality, Service Improvement and Redesign (QSIR) - meeting the challenges set out by the Berwick Report and building future capability to support and develop others.

QSIR train the trainer -  Built on the success of the Quality Service Improvement and Redesign (QSIR) programme, the aim of this new programme is to help NHS organisations build in-house improvement capability in order to infuse the NHS with improvement skills.

Masterclass Workshops - these are workshops in key curriculum areas including transformational change and the science of improvement. A limited number are provided on request and to meet specific needs.
