Free online course coming soon!

Do you have ambitions to deliver large scale change in health and care, but don’t know how to get started? This unique online course from NHS England’s Transformation Academy for Large Scale Change (TALSC) could be just for you.

Featuring experts from the field, this free, CPD accredited, six-week course will introduce you to the fundamentals of large scale change. It will help you to develop your capability to apply large scale change approaches, tools and techniques to support your organisation’s COVID-19 recovery plans, your business planning priorities and your personal development.

Made up of five, one-hour, self-paced modules, the course will cover:

  • Understanding your large scale change
  • The large scale change model in action
  • Systems leadership approaches for mobilising in large scale change
  • Mobilising approaches for systems leadership in large scale change
  • ‘Lots of lots’ – planning for large scale change.

The course is aimed at anyone in health and care who has a role to play in transformational change. Designed to suit a variety of learning styles, the course will feature multiple formats including videos, slides, practical exercises, quizzes, chances to engage with our expert faculty, and peer-to-peer discussions in the social spaces on our interactive learning platform.

Participants from our first, well received, large scale change MOOC said: “Great tools and theory that I can now apply in practice to my large scale change. The format of the course is great – you can complete it in your own time but also maintain interaction, see what other participants are doing and get valuable feedback from subject matter experts”.


The course will launch on Monday 9th January 2023 and will close on Sunday 19th February 2023.
