South East Finance Academy

The South East Regional Academy will be chaired by Sheila Stenson, Executive Director of Finance at Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust and will be responsible for approving operational plans to enable the delivery of the NHS Finance Development strategy, set by the Finance Leadership Council.

The Academy’s responsibilities are to:

• Embed a culture of inclusive talent management within the region.
• Agree priorities for training and development based on regional needs analysis and track progress.
• Agreement of programmes and initiatives through partner organisations to ensure training and development needs are met across the region.

The Academy will also set strategies for talent management, recruitment and retention, and equality, diversity, and inclusion.

The Skills Development Network in the South East will work with the Academy, and with regional HFMA branches to develop and provide a core finance curriculum to ensure access to the technical skills, personal competencies and behavioural characteristics needed at the different stages in people’s careers.
