2020 Public Health Leadership Programme Auckland and Wellington

PHLP 2020

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 2020 one programme will be offered in Wellington and one in Auckland and (hopefully one in Dunedin).

Applications for the 2020 Public Health Leadership Programme (PHLP) are now open.

The confirmed programme dates are:

Programme 1 (Wellington): 17 - 18 June, 19- 20 August, 21 - 22 Oct 2020

Programme 2 (Auckland): 24 - 25 July, 26 - 27 August, 28 - 29 October 2020

Places are limited to 18 per programme. Applicants not previously accepted are encouraged to apply again.

Here's what 2019 participants said about the programme:

"The variety of content that we've covered in the PHLP has exceeded my expectations and raised my awareness to thinking about opportunities and priorities not only in my current role but also with regards to my organisation and the programmes we deliver as well as opportunities for my team and what actions we can take to make improvements in our sector".

"Learning more about my leadership style and how it affects others around me, which enables me to be more conscious of how to talk to others, plus gaining a better knowledge that leadership comes in many faucets, learning that it's not just managing a group of people but leading change, mobilising and encouraging vision and ideas".

Anyone working in the public health sector may apply for a place on the programme.

Applications deadline: 5pm, Friday 7th February 2020
