Leadership and Management Programme (LaMP)

COVID-19 Information

  

Aims and objectives

Within a complex health and care system, healthcare professionals will need to draw on more than their clinical and technical skills alone.  The LaMP programme is an entry-level course and has been designed by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) to help and support individuals as they develop a range of personal and professional skills and behaviours which will contribute to their effectiveness as a clinician.

 

This programme has been designed to offer a blended learning approach which normally consists of two development workshops, an online module and a workplace-based project, however currently only workshop 1 is required.  This full-day workshop describes key areas of performance under 5 domains:

  • Demonstrating personal qualities
  • Working with others
  • Managing services
  • Improving services
  • Setting Direction

 

The programme is completed as shown below.

 

 

Target audience

There are currently three programmes, to suit different groups:

  1. Medical trainees who are in a specialty approaching CCT, GP trainees approaching CCT and Dental trainees
  2. Staff Grade, Associate Specialist & Specialty (SAS) Doctors & Dentists, Consultants and GPs
  3. Optometrists

NES reserves the right to prioritise those with an educational need for training  

 

Cost 

The cost for the one-day course is £100, which is payable at the point of booking.  

For Medical and Dental trainees, study leave budgets have been "top-sliced" to cover the cost of the programme.

LaMP Non-Trainee Cancellations and Refunds: Please note that a full automated refund can be generated from the Portal for cancellations up to 4 weeks prior to the course.  Within 4 weeks of the course date, refunds may be given in exceptional circumstances only.  NES reserves the right to remove anyone from a course, without the offer of a refund, if they are unable to fully participate.

Please ensure both your The Knowledge Network account and your NES Portal account have your most up to date details, using the same contact email address for both.

Delegates should take part in a short audio-visual test with a course facilitator, in advance of the workshop.  Test dates and times will be made available upon booking.  

Places are limited and if you are unable to commit to a course date please cancel your booking as soon as possible to give someone else the opportunity to fill the place – thank you.

Please note that workshops may be cancelled at very short notice.  Reasons for this might include a lack of participants, or issues securing faculty to deliver the courses.  In the event of a course being cancelled, delegates will be contacted by email as a matter of urgency.

The online full-day workshop will be held on the Adobe Connect app.  By booking onto this programme you are committing to download the Adobe Connect app (instructions will be given upon booking) and using Adobe Connect as instructed.  You will be expected to have your webcam visible during the course.  Delegate visibility and interaction is essential.

Quality improvement project

Due to the pressures of COVID, we have been unable to deliver the Leadership and Management Programme in a face to face capacity.  The programme has restarted online but will now be offered on a workshop 1 (full-day) basis only, therefore workshop 2 won’t be required.  This is an interim arrangement to support trainees towards CCT.  However, there is an expectation that trainees should gather evidence in their portfolio from their clinical practice which demonstrates leadership and management skills.  Delegates can complete a Quality Improvement project in their own clinical time and upload it to their Portfolio as evidence, if they choose to.  The QI Lead in your health board would welcome any QI project enquiries.  QI Leads Contact List
