About Y&H Leadership Academy

Formerly part of the Strategic Health Authority, we have been developing leaders and organisations since 2007. Working in partnership, we provide a range of offers to create excellent leadership, excellent organisations, transforming systems together.

Our offer is overseen by the Regional Leadership Council (RLC), a sub-committee of the Yorkshire and Humber Local Education and Training Board (LETB), who engage directly with us to shape our direction.

The RLC is drawn from Chief Executives, Human Resource Directors, Leadership Leads and other interested stakeholders across the local region. The group is constantly refreshing its membership and welcomes new interest and participation.

Working in partnership, we provide a range of offers to create excellent leadership and excellent organisations, transforming systems together.

Our regional offer has been informed by a significant consultation exercise with a wide and diverse range of stakeholders across Yorkshire and the Humber. We asked questions to understand the current and future leadership challenges and what those challenges meant for leadership development. It was clear to us that the region wanted more opportunities to learn and develop together while engaged in real work.

As the Local Leadership Academy (LLA) for the NHS Leadership Academy, we provide access in the region to a suite of high quality core leadership development programmes and tools that aim to professionalise leadership across the NHS, including the Graduate Management Trainee Scheme.

Developed with national and international experts, this offer provides a valuable and consistent leadership development offer that gives individuals the necessary support to be the best leaders they can.

In this section of the website, you can find our current leadership and organisation development offers available in Yorkshire and the Humber.

How we work

  • We provide enablers for and added value to existing leadership and organisation development provision, respecting and working from and with our colleagues in other organisations
