If you work for the NHS, or an organisation that provides NHS commissioned services, we can offer you a free upgrade on the NHS courses listed here- https://verify.leadershipacademy.nhs.uk/, so you can receive a certificate upon successful completion. To get this you will need to follow the instructions below. (You may also qualify if you work in social care or are a university student undertaking a healthcare course in England)
How to get your free upgrade and certificate
- Ensure your FutureLearn account email matches your NHS email address exactly.
If it doesn't, update your FutureLearn account email else you will not receive the free upgrade. You can find instructions for changing your email address here.
- Then, visit the Leadership Academy verification website and select the NHS course you are taking/want to take (and click ‘Next’ and then ‘Proceed’)
- Enter your NHS email address in the box as prompted and click ‘Next’ to receive your 'Email confirmation' email.
- Click on the ‘Confirm email address’ button in the email confirmation received and follow any further instructions to receive your free upgrade. (If you do not receive this email within 2 hours, and you have checked your spam folder, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
Your email on FutureLearn must match your NHS email
You can continue to take part in the course and upgrade later, provided you have registered on FutureLearn with the email address you will use to verify your eligibility (usually your work email address).
If you have already paid to upgrade, please let us know and we will refund you.
