Ms Judith Francois


I am a Senior Lecturer with a particular focus on Leadership and management.   Current roles including teaching across a range of pre and post registration modules, including Foundation, Pre-registration and MSc programmes.  I am also the lead for the Admissions for the Nursing Associate Foundation Degree.

I am an experienced clinician and have worked in a range of capacities with families and individuals within the community setting on improving health, including vulnerable and less engaged communities.   My work profile also includes work with commissioning services, as well as working with the Leadership Academy teaching on the Mary Seacole programme, and national   initiatives with the Royal College of Nursing in improving team performance

I have developed a number of bespoke Leadership courses and am particularly interested in creating a more diverse and inclusive curriculum.  Current work in this area includes a successful partnership with a Mental Health Trust to improve the leadership profile of BAME staff in the organisation, which is currently generating interest from other providers.
