Demand and Capacity Trainer Programme

The Demand and Capacity Trainer Programme is a free, accredited, six-month programme designed to support organisations to develop internal capability and skills in demand and capacity modelling.

The approach will equip staff to train others in demand and capacity and thereby spread this knowledge more widely at a local level. As a result local areas are better equipped to develop credible activity plans that support the delivery of reduced waiting times for patients. The Programme will deliver a pool of staff trained to cascade knowledge and support on demand and capacity modelling within their locality.

If you are interested in applying, please watch our video.

How to apply?

The training will be divided into 10 cohorts; to ensure regional spread we have prioritised approximately forty NHS Trusts for each cohort. We will publish the NHS Trust priority list for each cohort as and when applications open.

Please find below a schedule of training and an information pack to help you prepare for the application process. The information pack contains the prospectus and the participation agreement.
