Training and Leadership Development


Epworth HealthCare has a leadership and development program across the organisation.


Epworth’s commitment to the success of our leaders includes both formal and informal development. In addition to formalised learning up to diploma courses, Epworth fully supports on-the-job application of skills and knowledge using coaching, job rotations, shadowing and acting up opportunities. 

We run a series of seminars to provide opportunities for our leaders to learn from others. All new leaders attend a breakfast session with our CEO. We run a twilight leadership series where a prominent leader from the broader business community shares their leadership journey. 

We have been fortunate to host leaders such as Gail Kelly, CEO of Westpac, Margaret Jackson, former CEO of Qantas, and The Honourable David Davis MP, Minister for Health & Ageing, Victorian Government to name a few.


Providing great opportunities for our leaders and their continuing development is an important part of our workplace culture and commitment to staff.
