3-Day Leadership Programme

Programme Outline


The aim of this 3-Day Leadership Programme is to upskill and empower Senior HCA’s, Staff Nurses & Team Leaders to take ownership for the development of their team, to be solution focused problem solvers and ensure the delivery of excellent person centred care through effective team leadership.

The programme provides learners with the practical tools to increase their ability to lead care teams in a residential care setting.

In response to the current pandemic, Harvest has redesigned and transferred its QQI Level 6 Leadership programme to live virtual classes. The programme will be delivered over 3 non-consecutive days as a virtual classroom.

All sessions are easily accessible regardless of your level of confidence using IT. You will need access to the internet using a PC, laptop or tablet.

Each day will consist of morning and afternoon live virtual classrooms, designed to be highly interactive and engaging. Delegates will have the opportunity to learn in a dynamic environment. Group work, discussions, exercises, and activities will continue to be key elements of training.
