ADPH YH Advanced Practitioner Fellowship Programme

04 July 2022

Today we are delighted to launch recruitment for the ADPH YH Advanced Practitioner Fellowship programme.

In its first year (2022-23), this programme will give three advanced public health practitioners from the Yorkshire and the Humber system an opportunity to work on behalf of our regional Association for Directors of Public Health (ADPH) network.

The fellowship is a 1-year part-time programme (i.e., 3 days a week secondment alongside their current roles) where each of the fellows will lead on one of the ADPH YH Priority Ambitions. Fellows will be supported by a dedicated personal development programme and mentorship opportunities.

The aim of the programme is to develop future public health leaders with skills in working across complex systems, spanning organisational boundaries, and influencing regional work programmes to reduce health inequalities. It may be particularly relevant to those that may be considering or working towards UK Public Health Register (UKPHR) Specialist Registration by Portfolio Assessment (the portfolio route to becoming a Public Health Consultant).

The programme is open to those with several years public health experience working at advanced practitioner level in Yorkshire and the Humber local authorities.

Successful candidates will play a key role in the leadership of the ADPH YH network’s three priority areas for collaboration. The three priority ambitions are:

  • To promote inclusive and wellbeing economies. 
  • To address climate change and sustainability. 
  • To improve life chances for children and young people.

For more information regarding the Advanced Practitioner Fellowship programme, please refer to the guidance document.

It is anticipated the secondments will commence from September 2022 onwards. We request that all applicants have the support of their local authority Director of Public Health prior to applying.
