Our new health and wellbeing case study highlights the work of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust and how they have implemented our supportive leadership and management behaviour ‘train the trainer’ programme into their trust. This programme arranged by NHS Employers and delivered by Zeal solutions aimed to support trusts predominately with higher sickness absence rates by training staff to deliver training on supportive leadership and management behaviours.

Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust is a large mental health, learning disability and community health service across Coventry and Warwickshire, employing around 4,300 staff. The trust took part in the pilot programme of the training as they were keen to explore the link between supportive management behaviour and sickness absence, therefore committed to rolling out the ‘train the trainer’ programme as part of a band 7 leadership programme.

Two managers were nominated to participate in the pilot programme. This training was rolled out within the trust and formed part of a five day mandatory programme for all band 7 staff, which has proved highly effective across the trust and trained approximately 250 managers and helped support work around values and how these impact behaviours.

This is the first health and wellbeing case study that has been developed to highlight the successes of implementing supportive leadership and management behaviour training within a trust, so read about their barriers and outcomes in our case study.

We have dates available for the next upcoming rollout of this training available to line manager across all England NHS trusts in February and March 2016, if this is something that you would be interested in please visit our events pages or email for further details on how to book on.
