Supporting Happier, Healthier Communities... Development Opportunities for Staff in Our Health and Care System


What We Offer


To book a place on one of our programmes, please visit our Training and Events page.


In North Cumbria, our vision is to build a new integrated health and care system together, using our collective capabilities for a healthier and happier population. You can find out more here.


People working in our health and care system have a valuable role in helping achieve these aims, and we want to support you to develop the skills and capabilities to do your role whilst you personally learn and grow! 


The Cumbria Learning and Improvement Collaborative (CLIC) is here to develop a positive transformation in the health and social care system across North Cumbria by leading and embedding a culture of collaboration for continuous learning, continuous improvement, and living within our means. Our three key areas of focus are:

  • Learn – providing access to leadership, improvement and clinical skills training, coaching and events
  • Connect – bringing like-minded people together to share and learn for the benefit of our health and care system
  • Improve – supporting staff to embed a culture of continuous quality improvement through the use of common methods and tools


The programmes have been developed to support North Cumbria Health and Care’s system priorities, as well as supporting the development needs of countywide services. This year, COVID-19 has led us to review our programmes in light of social distancing. This means that more training will be available online, and some of the sessions that require face-to-face learning have had their attendee numbers restricted.  


CLIC will support your learning by following up after any programme to find out what changes you have made and what impact this has had. This evidence is vital for CLIC to ensure that we can continue to offer support and to be able to extend this offering to meet our staffs’ needs into the future. 


Most of these programmes are open to all staff working within the health care system – including Primary Care, Cumbria County Council, CCG, care home settings, third sector and community leaders, and are delivered locally or virtually. Before booking, please speak with your line manager to ensure that the offering fits with your local priorities and to agree how you will use the learning back in your workplace to benefit patients and service users. It will be helpful to use a contracting document to do this.
