Proteus is the HSC Leadership Centre's regional leading edge development programme for Assistant Directors, Co-Directors and Senior Clinicians across health and social care. This newly designed programme is now in its fifth year, and is 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.  The programme is also open to Specialty and Associate Specialist Doctors. 


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 to apply.  


The programme will be delivered across five modules. A regional/improvement project will be conducted in teams throughout the duration of the programme, which will be presented at the final module.


  • Personal Assessments
  • Industry Perspectives
  • Core Leadership Development Modules
  • Individual And Team Coaching
  • Links To Other Executive Leadership Programmes
  • Peer Support
  • Health And Wellbeing support
  • Delivery Of A Regional Improvement
