Peloton

Welcome to the Peloton system leadership development programme

We are delighted to offer an opportunity for those across our partnership to apply to join the second wave of Peloton, the System Leadership Development Programme for Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

Peloton is a leadership development programme, designed to equip senior leaders with the skills, relationships, networks and mindsets to go Further Together, leading the shift towards a more integrated approach to health and care across BNSSG.

The programme is appropriate for:

  • Clinicians, professionals and managers leading change across multiple partner organisations
  • Director and Associate Director level colleagues in partner organisations, including PCN Clinical Directors

We will work virtually (at least for the time being), although the learning will be immersive, personal and practical – so you need to be able to commit to participating fully and make yourself available for all the programme dates.

What’s in it for me?

Here’s some statistics from the first programme which was known as wave one.

• Over 80% of respondents agreed that they had significantly improved their ability to ‘See the System’
• Participants with ‘Strong awareness’ of BNSSG health and care priorities increased from 18% at the launch event, to nearly 70% by the close
• Confidence to influence BNSSG health and care priorities more than doubled
• Those with a strong network across the system nearly doubled, increasing from 44% to 82%
• Marked shift in ability to work in more agile, emergent ways
• Significant increases in core system leadership skills of coaching, listening, collaboration and navigating complexity

Nurses starting their apprenticeship at UWE

New apprenticeship courses in full swing

37 health and social care staff from across BNSSG have embarked on our new apprenticeship programmes in recent months.

15 local health care support workers have taken the first step to becoming registered nurses by beginning their two year Nursing Associate apprenticeship at the University of the West of England. The foundation degree course, which leads to Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) registration, will help trainees carry out vital roles within our organisations to support existing registered nurses.

A further 22 staff from nursing and allied health roles have also begun a two year master’s degree to develop their advanced practice. This will help staff with career development opportunities and the ability to take on higher levels of responsibility. This is part of an ambitious Healthier Together project to train over 100 Advanced Clinical Practitioners in the next three years.

Jane Bennett, Director of Nursing at Avon Local Medical Committee, who has been instrumental in coordinating the apprenticeship approach for primary care in the region, said: “Advanced Care Practitioners are a vital part of the primary care team. They improve access to services for patients and are proven to provide safe and effective care.”

Developed and funded through the Healthier Together partnership, these apprenticeship opportunities are just the start of plans to help support and develop our local workforce. You can find out more about local health and care apprenticeship opportunities on our Apprenticeships page
