The return of the School for Change Agents!

Would you like to develop the skills to make a difference and create change in health and care? There’s great news – The School for Change Agents is returning 14th February 2022! 
The School offers anyone who works in health and care, at whatever level and whether they are clinical or non-clinical, the opportunity to take their desire to see change happen and make it a reality.  
There are five interactive sessions to complete on Future Learn:   

  • Change starts with me   
  • Resourcefulness   
  • Using power to make a difference   
  • Using stories to create change  
  • Making sense of complexity

School is free to join, and to take part in. All you need is an internet connection.  The sessions are arranged into ‘bite-sized’ chunks so that you can complete them in your own time, and in your own way. So, whether you’ve got 10 minutes or an hour, you can still get involved! You can take part on a computer, tablet or mobile device. Each session includes a range of articles and videos that feature people like you talking about their own experiences of creating change.

Everyone taking part in the School has eight weeks from when they start to complete the modules. If you’d like to extend your access, you can upgrade for a small fee. The great news is if you work for the NHS or in social care, you can get an upgrade at no cost to you thanks to a partnership we have with Future Learn.
