The ELFT Improvement Coaching Programme (Cohort 9) starts in October 2023 and runs through to March 2024. Please find the further information a below.

We would like to remind you that if you are interested in applying for the role of a QI coach you should have already attended Pocket QI and the Improvement Leaders Programme so that you have a good foundational knowledge base of QI.  Please have a conversation as soon as you can with your line manager regarding the coaching role’s time commitment (around a half-day per week).

We welcome applications from service users and carers so if you are interested in this paid role please have an initial conversation with your local People Participation Lead about what the role entails.

To get a feel for the role and to understand what is expected, link in with existing QI coaches and QI sponsors in your directorate. Attending your local QI forum (if you don’t already do so) is a good way to see what QI projects are underway in the directorate.
