Alison Jennings and Maggie Woods - Joint Leads for TVWLA
Our vision and strategic objectives
Purpose: The NHS has the right number of leaders with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours that are required to deliver high quality services, improve health outcomes and continually improve patient care.
Leadership development is our passion and our business.
We are the Local Academy in Thames Valley and Wessex and we are passionate about developing leaders at all levels, whether this is the start of a development journey, a point of change in a career or for an established leader who is facing the challenges of managing complex services and delivering change.
We strongly believe that leadership development is for all and it is about the leaders that work together, collective leadership, leadership across teams, directorates and organisational boundaries all working together to improve the quality of services for our citizens. Our programmes welcome individuals from primary and secondary care, and from individuals working in and across our health and care system as well as individuals from diverse backgrounds.
Our work reflects the priorities set out in the Developing People, Improving Care Framework. We focus on System Leadership, Talent Management and Inclusion and we support the development of quality Improvement skills . We believe in role modelling collective leadership so we work with key partners to deliver our priorities.
As an academy we facilitate local leadership development programmes and masterclasses, we facilitate systems leadership interventions, offer coaching and mentoring and provide support for the development of Organisational Development practitioners . We create and support networks and communities of practice and support the dissemination of research and best practice. Finally we provide consultancy support to individuals and teams.
