Your Development

Leadership and Management Programme

The aim of this programme is to help you acquire knowledge of leadership and management and raise your awareness of how this might influence your practice.


Why is Leadership and Management Training necessary?

The changing needs of the population and the continued development of new health technologies will mean that the service provided by the NHS in Scotland will change and evolve - meaning staff doing different things, in different ways, and developing new skills.  Healthcare professionals will need to ensure that they continue to meet the needs of patients and their carers, whether in hospitals, at home or in the community.

Within a complex health and care system, healthcare professionals will need to draw on more than their clinical and technical skills alone. The LaMP programme has been designed by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) to help and support individuals as they develop a range of personal and professional skills and behaviours which will contribute to their effectiveness as a clinician.


What does it look like?

This programme has been designed to offer a blended learning approach which consists of two face-to-face development workshops, an online module and a workplace-based project. It describes key areas of performance under 5 domains:


  • Demonstrating personal qualities
  • Working with others
  • Managing services
  • Improving services
  • Setting Directiion


The programme is completed as shown below.



Target audience

There are currently three programmes, to suit different groups:

  1. Medical trainees at an ST3 level or beyond (ST1-3 GP trainees) and Dental Trainees
  2. SAS Doctors, Consultants and GPs
  3. Optometrists



The cost for the programme is £150, which is payable at the point of booking.

For Medical and Dental trainees, study leave budgets have been "top-sliced" to cover the cost of the programme.
