East of England Transformation Academy

6th April 2018


The East of England LGA, LGA and Public Service Transformation Academy (PSTA) have launched the East of England Transformation Academy, a capability development programme for current and future leaders and change makers across the region.

The Academy will immerse participants in the latest and proven practices on leading change across complex systems to enable you to bring to bear the ideas, assets and energy of all parties to realise better outcomes for the people you serve.

Taking place in Cambridge over five days between May and October 2018, the academy will equip a network of change makers across the region with the tools, techniques, relationships and behaviours to approach the most challenging issues facing communities in a collaborative, creative and evidence-driven way. The content and structure of the Academy is designed to develop capabilities at both the individual and organisational levels, and to provoke innovation in how outcomes can be realised.

Participants will benefit from master classes, workshops, expert speakers, peer challenge, a virtual site visit, practical action planning and - upon completion - membership of an extensive alumni network of senior peers from across public services. Participants will hear from leading experts in areas including:

  • whole-systems thinking
  • outcome-based commissioning
  • collaborative partnership working
  • market engagement and development
  • working with the voluntary and community sector
  • behavioural insights
  • applying agile change methods
  • alternative funding models
  • new models of delivery
