OD Practitioner Claiming Practice Programme

The OD Practitioner Claiming Practice Programme recruitment was launched on Friday 23 June 2017. This is one of two collaborative OD projects that is being led and implemented by the LLA OD network with support from an external consultant and Do OD. Following on from the successful pilot in the NW Leadership Academy, the ambition is to scale and spread a model that allows the OD NHS practitioner community to ‘claim their practice’. It will support OD practitioners across the regions to review their career journey, reflect upon current capability and competency and develop a portfolio claim which evidences their competency.   It will also enable regional and national system wide plans for supporting system level OD practitioners.  The outputs of this will provide STPs and the wider system assurances around skills to support system OD, as well as a talent & developmental pipeline on developing OD practitioner system ready skills. There are 20 places for the Mids and East Region and the workshop date is on 3rd October. For all details and more about the programme and how to apply can be found at this address:
