Rock the boat and stay in it!

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 based online, is completely free, is 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 School for Health and Care Radicals is a free, five-week virtual learning programme for change activists in health and care.

  • Five modules
  • Absolutely free
  • 14.30-16.00 GMT on Thursdays via an online webinar (all recorded and available on the school resources page)
  • Handbook and study guides
  • Social Guided Learning
  • Use it how you want!

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 for Health and Care Radicals 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 about the School on our FAQs page.

Register for the school and get further information at the school webpage. Registration will take you no more than five minutes and is open now!

*CPD points accredited by the NHS in England. We can provide evidence to support accreditation elsewhere
