It has been invaluable for my leadership development. I have not come across a programme like it, and feel that it has given me great insight into my unconscious processes so that I can work with these in future to be the best that I can be for myself and for others.

I was delighted to be invited to attend the 'On becoming' 'graduation day' in Salford in June 2019. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, and was very pleasantly surprised. I have been around the PA world for over 15 years (I like to say I have more 'PA Pack years' than any other UK doctor) and would love to see a similar opportunity for all UK-trained PAs. The course was clearly enjoyable and empowering; as someone who was found public speaking difficult in the early years (I used to write myself scripts, including pauses and jokes) it took me a good few years to be able to extemporise. And yet these relatively new PAs, many of whom had, I understand, 'made themselves do the course' to try to develop their leadership skills, including but not limited to public speaking, really impressed me.

I heartily recommend this experience to any newly qualified PAs

The On Becoming programme was a truly unique experience, and the most useful course I have engaged with to date. I was constantly challenged within a highly supportive environment. The programme was invaluable for my leadership development.

It was a privilege to become part of the first cohort of the On Becoming programme. Learnt a lot from this programme and looking forward to using the skills learnt as an advocate of the physician associate role

Fantastic course - empowering physician associates to embrace their role with confidence and authority, offering opportunity to grow and develop. Enhancing communication and coaching skills to improve the delivery of patient care.
