2013/14 Prototype phase

Four prototype CEPNs were given seed funding to test different models of delivery. An early review was  conducted in October 2013 from which a set of design principles and functions of CEPNs emerged.


Functions include:

  • Workforce Planning: Developing robust local workforce planning data to inform decisions on how education and training funding should best be invested
  • Education Quality: Supporting improvements in the quality of education programmes delivered in primary and community care, for example, through peer review
  • Faculty Development: Developing local educational capacity and capability (for example, an ability to accommodate greater numbers of nursing placements or the development of multi-professional educators in community settings)
  • Responding to Local Workforce Needs: Collaborating to meet local workforce requirements (such as specific skills shortages), including the development of new bespoke programmes to meet specific local needs
  • Workforce Development: Developing, commissioning and delivering continuing professional development for all staff groups
  • Education Programme Coordination: Local coordination of education programmes to ensure improved economy of scale, reduced administration costs and improved educational governance
  • CCG engagement: ensuring effective spend of CPPD funding for primary care.
