Applications for the fully funded Ready Now programme for BAME leaders is now open


Are you a black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) leader at band 8a, the clinical equivalent or above? Do you aspire to go further? Do you want to be instrumental in helping to make the NHS the best healthcare organisation in the world?

Ready Now is the innovative and inspirational positive action programme from the NHS Leadership Academy. The programme will take senior leaders from BAME backgrounds on a transformational learning journey, helping them to realise their potential and take that next step up to a more senior role, to the boardroom and beyond.

Fully funded, Ready Now is a year-long programme which provides a combination of face to face, online and self-directed workplace-based learning.

Applications are now open – please visit the NHS Leadership Academy website to find out more.
