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

The Team Leader apprenticeship is a 13 month course that provides Leeds health and care employees who are new to management with the essential skills required to unlock the potential within themselves and their teams.
A first of its kind in the city, this industry-leading data programme brings colleagues together from across the sector to build digital and analytical skills in partnership with each other.
Applications for our September 2022 Springboard cohort are now open. This award-winning international programme is a 3 month personal and work development initiative aimed at women working in non-managerial roles. This opportunity is available to women working across health and care in Leeds, up to and including Band 6 / PO4 or equivalent.
