Quality coach development programme

The Quality Coach Development Programme (QCDP) is an exciting opportunity for individuals and teams to develop and strengthen their skills around QI and QI coaching.


About the programme

The programme brings together the concepts of coaching, facilitation, improvement, measurement, the psychology of change, and much more. The materials have been designed and developed by a dedicated group of national subject matter experts from across the QI community in the UK and Ireland.

The QCDP offers a broad range of possible benefits to an organisation, including improved outcomes, experience of care, staff experience, increased retention, and a culture of continuous improvement. You can find out more about the programme and why you should consider joining it in the programme guide.

Who is it for?

This programme is initially offered as a train-the-trainer programme and is aimed at those who work in QI roles or who teach quality improvement within their organisation. The aim is that by joining this programme, individuals will be able to return to their organisation with the know-how to deliver a local cohort.

The train-the-trainer programme includes:

Eight taught lessons

Mentorship from our QI faculty

Coaching circles

Support for a QCDP delivery plan
