Welcome to the Leeds Health and Care Academy


We design and deliver collaborative learning and development opportunities for all health and care staff across the city of Leeds.

We work on behalf of the entire Leeds health and care sector. Our partners include the Leeds NHS Trusts, Leeds City Council, Leeds CCG and the city’s universities, as well as third and independent sector organisations.

Our programmes can be accessed by all health and care colleagues across the city. We offer a unique opportunity for people to learn together across organisational boundaries, as one Team Leeds.

Current Learning Opportunities

We’re looking for people who are passionate about working in health and care to motivate others to do the same. Anybody working in health and care in Leeds can become an I Care… Ambassador, you just need to be enthusiastic about what you do, and be willing to speak to others about your experiences.
Better Conversations provides space for staff to reflect on their conversations, and explore their communication in a supportive environment. A 1 hour self study package or 3 hour virtual interactive session is currently available to book for anybody working in health and care in Leeds.
The impact of COVID-19 resulted in the health and care workforce needing to adapt quickly to digital and hybrid ways of working. As a result, we developed three digital workshops that are repeated quarterly - Meeting Virtually, Leading Virtually and Caring Virtually. These short digital sessions are available to anybody working in health and care in Leeds.
