Aspire is the HSC Leadership Centre’s regional leading edge development programme for Senior Managers across the Health and Social Care System.

Asipring leaders will engage in shared and cross-cutting leadership development experiences.  It will provide an opportunity to explore and build collaboration across a range of service areas. 

The programme is now in its fourth year and has been designed to be innovative, fresh and forward-thinking.  Aspire builds on your existing leadership skills.  It will challenge you to think about what high impact and collective leadership means for you, and what it takes to make decisions and engage effectively within and across organisational boundaries. 

Working with other leaders from across the HSC family, you will have an opportunity to stretch and challenge houw you view and perform in your leadership role.  The perspectives of other industry leaders and collaboration on pitching for a project to obtain support from Senior decision makers will also form part of this learning experience. 

Learning Outcomes

The programme will explore and develop your understanding on thinking around:

  • Personal and People Leadership
  • Improvement and Innovation Leadership
  • Collaborative and Systems Leadership
  • Collective Leadership


Aspire is for Senior Managers (Typically Band 7 to 8b) and clinicians (Consultants from across Health and Social Care)

We know that organisations flourish and new ideas come when the workforce is diverse.  We also know that particular groups are underrepresented in senior leadership positions, and therefore encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds. 


Due to the current Covid-19 situation Aspire will be a blend of classroom and virtual modules, that will require work outside of the programme modules.  You will be part of a small team that will undertake a regional imporvement project throughout the duration of the programme, which will be presented as part of the final module.

We want to assure you that we are taking all necessary steps to make sure that your development days will be in an environment that we have made as safe as possible.  We have introduced risk assessments for all programmes where we have participants together in the same room, when we are not using a virtual approach.
