Proteus is the  HSC Leadership Centre's regional leading edge development programme for Assistant Directors, Co-Directors and Clinical Directors or equivalent  across health and social care. This newly designed programme is now in its third year, and based on the latest research in leadership behaviours.


Designed to be innovative, fresh and leading edge, Proteus builds on your existing leadership skills. It challenges you to think about your personal resilience for change; what high impact and collective leadership means for you; and what it takes to make confident decisions and engage effectively within and across organisational boundaries, given the strategic challenges facing the sector.



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


Proteus is for Assistant Directors (8b to 8d) and Senior Clinicians (Clinical Directors and Clinical Leads) 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 are underrepresented in senior leadership positions, and therefore encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds.




Due to the current Covid-19 situation Proteus will be a blend of classroom and virtual modules, that will require work outside of the programme modules.  The regional / improvement project will be conducted in teams throughout the duration of the programme, which will be presented at the final module.

We want to assure you you that we are taking all necessary steps to make sure yoyr 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 in the same room, when we are not using a virtual approach.
