The Coaching Academy has a programme for everyone interested in learning and development for themselves, their team and the system at large.


We offer some programmes on a regular basis (usually beginning Autumn and Spring) to individuals or as commissions for teams within health and care, third sector, academia and the public sector in the North West Coast - and beyond!

Innovator development online programmes

These three courses are self directed and typically 12 weeks in duration to provide flexibility and ensure you have time to complete the coursework around your work and personal commitments. They are aimed at a beginner to intermediate level to support you at different points in your innovation journey. Coursework is available on the Future NHS online learning platform, with workshops taking place over Zoom and Microsoft Teams. 

You will be:

  • supported by an experienced coach at regular group coaching sessions to provide you with the thinking space you need to make the most of the programme,
  • given a collaborative space to brainstorm and network with like-minded health and social care colleagues,
  • given opportunities to apply coursework to real workplace challenges or in relation to your specific innovation.
