NSW Health Senior Executive Development Program

Growing senior leadership potential within NSW Health

The NSW Health Senior Executive Development Program is designed to develop NSW Health senior executives and general managers who are motivated and ready to take on a more senior leadership role within NSW Health.

The Program reflects contemporary leadership theories and best practice approach to developing senior executives. It is the premier leadership program for NSW Health and recently won the 2019 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Gold Award for Best Unique and Innovative Leadership Development Program. It was also a finalist in the 2018 Australian Psychological Society Workplace Excellence Award for Leadership Development and Coaching. The eight month Program will build a pool of executives who may be considered suitable for future senior executive and Chief Executive roles within NSW Health.

Participants who graduate from the Program become members of the Alumni Network. The Alumni Network is a forum for Alumni to maintain professional networks, foster collaboration and participate in ongoing executive development.
