Training and Events

The training and events programme has been designed to support the development of staff in intelligence functions in the Midlands, alongside a wider cohort of analysts and decision-makers working in health and care organisations in each system.

Training is split into 3 key themes:

Improving decision-making practice

providing system leaders with practical tools & techniques for making better, more analytically-informed decisions

Strengthening analytical capability

building technical skills to undertake high-quality strategic analysis

Developing analytical leaders

fostering the skills analysts need to work more closely and effectively with decision-makers

Training and events are delivered through structured development programmes, short courses and a series of events – including INSIGHT, our annual festival of learning and sharing – see the INSIGHT 2022 recordings here (and see last year’s recordings here).

We also share information on a range of topics in the fortnightly Midlands Analyst Network Huddlesclick here to request to join the Midlands Analyst Network – we welcome new members!  And see the other communities of practice (CoP) for details of how to get involved with the Knowledge Mobilisation and Evaluation CoPs.
