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:
change - supporting teams and individuals to build
capability and deliver complex change.
Essentials - a pilot programme that provides
self-directed learning resources and evaluates their impact in
supporting transformation teams.
