School for Health & Care Radicals

Posted on by Brandon Klein

Anyone who wants to bring about change has to be ready to break the rules. But in health and social care, that can be really difficult. The art of rocking the boat while staying in it is something it seems no-one is ready to help you learn.

That’s where the School for Health and Care Radicals (SHCR) comes in. Brought to you by NHS Improving Quality, the School is entirely online, free, backed by the world’s largest health organisation: the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), and is a platform for radicals to learn together, using powerful, guided learning which also qualifies for Continuing Professional Development points.

The 2015 term of the School for Health and Care Radicals was a free five week virtual learning programme for change activists in health and social care.

    Five modules
    Absolutely free
    9.30am-11.00am GMT Friday morning online sessions (all recorded and available on the resources page)
    Handbook and study guides
    Social Guided Learning
    Use it how you want!
    Meet fellow change agents from all over the world

If you’ve been frustrated by having to navigate stifling hierarchies to get the changes you know are needed, or criticised for being a dissenter, disruptive or even divisive, then the School is for you. It’s more than just a school — it’s a platform for learning, and a community of people like you. You can read more in our FAQs.
