Transformation Academy for Large Scale Change masterclasses

NHS England and NHS Improvement are offering health and care teams targeted support for large scale change via face-to-face masterclasses.

The masterclasses – run by our Transformation Academy for Large Scale Change (TALSC) – build on three series of fully booked sessions that we ran between 2018 and 2020. The sessions received excellent feedback from the teams that participated, including:

“Great opportunity to work on our large scale change programme. [We were] given a structured methodology and excellent facilitator support and peer review.”

Respiratory Consultant and Clinical Lead for STP

“The pace was good and also the chance to actually use the time to start thinking about actions (i.e. not too much talking to us). Plenty of energy, good expertise and experienced speakers.”

Deputy Director – Clinical Strategy

Once Covid restrictions allow we will be looking to work with more health and care system teams who are with more health and care system teams who are either already redesigning services or are ready to start a transformation or redesign programme and wish to actively progress the change using large scale change principles.

The sessions – which cover system leadership and large scale change – will take the form of face-to-face, learning-in-action events designed to help health and care system teams to achieve their large scale change ambitions.

Our masterclasses will connect teams to our expert faculty and will be highly interactive. The aim for each masterclass is to help participating teams to develop a practical action plan to take forward the next steps of their large scale change challenge.

The masterclasses have been designed to bring together people to:

  • Learn, share and practically apply systems leadership and large scale change principles and best practice
  • Create a positive shift in our collective ability to lead complex change initiatives.

Following the masterclasses participants will be able to connect with our expert facilitators and peers through our dedicated TALSC online collaboration space to help maintain momentum with their large scale change commitments.

Expressions of interest

Expressions of interest for these masterclasses are currently closed. However we are hoping to run more large scale change masterclasses in 2021/22.

More information on our newly refreshed Transformation Academy for Large Scale Change masterclasses will be published on this web page in due course, in the meantime if you have any queries please get in touch with us at
