‘Transition to Public Health Consultant’ Group Coaching Programme
‘As a new Consultant, I am feeling some semblance of control, which I wouldn’t have without our sessions.’
‘A brilliant course and extremely well structured and delivered.’
‘Your calm and professional manner and the way you took the time to understand us as individuals really helped to make the course engaging, supportive and a safe space to share and reflect.’
‘Absolutely the most useful and relevant training I have been on.’
The successful transition to public health consultant is a vital step for every Trainee. Dr Fiona Day is a former Yorkshire and Humber Public Health ‘Educational Supervisor of the Year’ (2015), and this programme was set up by request of Health Education England to support their senior Trainees to feel confident and empowered to step up into the role of new Public Health Consultant. It is commissioned by local Deaneries for a cohort of 6-10 senior trainees and can be adapted to suit your local needs.
Aim: To ensure a successful first year as a new Public Health Consultant.
to establish a safe confidential learning group
to develop key leadership and management competencies and skills relating to the first year of Public Health Consultant practice
to develop a personalised Leadership Development Plan
to establish two Action Learning Sets per cohort for peer support and learning post programme

3 x 3 hour online ‘Preparing for Public Health Consultant Roles’ group coaching training programme
The three sessions will cover the themes of ‘managing self’, ‘managing the team’, and ‘doing the job’. The sessions will be held on Zoom, and are 3 hours long.
Session 1: the first 90 days
Session 2: the first 6 months
Session 3: the first year
1:1 Coaching sessions
Most Deaneries commission an additional 1:1 60 minute coaching session per Trainee to allow for bespoke, expert mentoring advice and support.
Action learning sets
At the end of the programme, the peer group will transition to become 2-3 self-facilitated action learning sets. This will enable trainees to support each other over the transition period to new consultant practice and beyond.
Note- this course does not include administrative practicalities about completing training or applying for CCT, nor interview practice.
