Apply now: Online course for network facilitators in health and care

A free online course for those facilitating networks for change and improvement in health and care launches in January 2019. The Developing Effective Networks for Change and Improvement course (DEN4CI) provides the ‘building blocks’ to develop and sustain effective networks.

More than ever, networks are driving transformation in services - bridging boundaries between organisations and mobilising people to work together. Network facilitation is an increasingly important skill. Over 11 weeks, the DEN4CI course will equip network leaders and facilitators with the know-how, confidence and practical tools they need. It includes:

  • Five specially designed modules covering the latest knowledge and insights from renowned experts in networks in health and care
  • Three powerful, evidence-based ‘diagnostic’ tools, to identify key actions to strengthen network effectiveness
  • Two live ‘Ask the expert’ webinars to support participants in applying the tools and learning within their network
  • Two self-directed ‘coaching circle’ sessions, using action-learning approaches to deepen your learning
  • Access to a community of fellow network leaders and facilitators in health and care through the LeNs community, to share insights and offer peer support to sustain your network development journey.

A blend of self-directed and live learning sessions, the course is CPD accredited. It has been designed in partnership with leading expert in networks for health and improvement, Professor Becky Malby of London South Bank University, and is delivered in conjunction with NHS England’s Sustainable Improvement Team.


Places on the programme are limited and will be allocated following an application process. For more information, including details of how to apply, please click here. The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 26th November.
