About Us

The Leeds Health and Care Academy was developed in recognition that a step change was needed to tackle workforce challenges, and maximise the opportunities that a joined-up approach could bring. Our portfolio has been designed to deliver transformational learning across organisational boundaries, with programmes developed in response to city wide pressures and needs. This ensures that all learning opportunities directly benefit the sector, the organisation, and the individual.
