Welcome to the Leeds Health and Care Academy


We design and deliver learning and development opportunities and collaborative workforce projects for all health and care staff and organisations 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, the ICB in Leeds and the city’s colleges and universities, as well as third and independent sector organisations.
Our learning opportunities can be accessed by all health and care colleagues across the city, and offer a unique opportunity for people to learn and work together across organisational boundaries, as one Team Leeds. We work in partnership to ensure that our city is equipped with the highly diverse, skilled workforce needed now, and in the future.

Current Learning Opportunities

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.
We are currently facilitating two Digital Workshops, Meeting Virtually and Leading Virtually, that are repeated on a quarterly basis. These short sessions are for people working in health and care who either attend or facilitate online meetings, or manage people or teams virtually.
We are working alongside partners to facilitate a series of Health and Wellbeing initiatives throughout 2022/23. All of these initiatives are fully-funded, and open to everybody working in a health and care role in Leeds.
