Training Resources for Trainers

Health Education England (HEE) will keep an up to date list of all courses approved for trainers. These courses may be local or national. If any trainers wish to attend other courses please let HEE know about this course, so we can examine the content of this course, and approve.


HEE has a GMC Recognition of trainers Board that can be contacted by email on heem.trainerrecognition@nhs.net.
