This report provides the interim evaluation data and analysis for our supportive leadership and management behaviour training programme roll out from training sessions that took place in 2015.
Up to the point of this evaluation, 24 NHS trusts have participated in the programme with 40 trainers trained. These trainers have trained a total of 507 delegates in supportive leadership locally, with responses such as:
- 83 per cent of delegates agreed that the planned objectives were met
- 81per cent of delegates agreed that the training was realistic
- 76 per cent of delegates agreed that the training enabled them to share professional experiences with colleagues
- 76 per cent of delegates agreed that the training context was well suited to the training process
Overall on the basis of the evaluation results, it can be seen that the training itself is both valuable and valued by trainees. Of particular note is that managers are leaving the training with a significantly increased sense of their own ability to deal with various potential management situations that they may encounter in their job roles and with a greater awareness of supportive and unsupportive leadership behaviours.
The final evaluation report for this rollout of training will be provided in June 2016, where it is anticipated that the long term impacts of the training will be explored.
