Unleash your ideas at scale

An immersive three-day event, the Spread and Scale Academy is designed to propel the implementation of your project forwards, so it can scale across the NHS, social care, local authorities and private industry.

“I’m convinced that if we hadn’t attended that 2019 Spread and Scale Academy, it would have taken me my whole career to get where I am now.”

Paul Twose, Consultant Therapist

What to expect

Spread and Scale will accelerate the development of your team and project by helping you to:

  • Refine your idea
  • Increase your ambition
  • Expand your network and enterprise
  • Become better organised and more cohesive as a team
  • Create a robust 90-day plan for delivery

You will finish the event with renewed self belief and belief in your work. Your team will be better equipped to drive transformative change with strong leadership, good practice and new models on a new and national level.

Following your attendance at the Academy, you will be invited to join the Spread and Scale Community of Practice.
