Public Health Leadership Programme
Wellington and Christchurch
The Public Health Leadership Programme (PHLP) is designed for people working in public health. The programme is funded by the Ministry of Health and has been developed following extensive consultation with the sector. PHLP builds leadership competencies identified as important for leaders in public health. The programme has been developed by Catapult (leadership and organisational performance specialists) and Quigley and Watts (public health specialists).
PHLP allows participants to discover their leadership potential and equips them with practical and tested leadership tools and resources. The programme generates immediate and lasting benefits for participants, those they lead, and for public health.
Each programme has six days spread over several months. In 2022 one programme will be offered in Wellington and one in Christchurch.
The programme dates are:
Programme 1 (Wellington):
29-30 June, 14-15 September, 16-17 November 2022
Programme 2 (Christchurch):
6-7 July, 21-22 September, 23-24 November 2022
