Education and Training

Education and training

Every year, we invest approximately £5 billion in education and training for our current and future workforce, across 129 different types of healthcare staff. With over 300 careers in the NHS, we also look at work that underpins all roles, such as values-based recruitment. We fund medical, dental, nursing and midwifery training, alongside other professions, such as Allied Health Professionals. We work with a wide range of partners including devolved nations, Royal Colleges, NHS Employers and regulatory bodies such as the General Medical Council, Nursing and Midwifery Council and General Dental Council to support those currently working in the NHS and those currently in training. Across England, we look after postgraduate multi-professional education and training for some professions. This work is carried out by HEE local teams and here in the Thames Valley, we have a separate website for our main areas of postgraduate education, which you can find by visiting the links below.

Dental

Our priority is to ensure that our trainees are confident in providing high quality patient care, supported by excellent trainers and underpinned by the GDC and dental education.

Doctors

Locally, we provide postgraduate medical education and training, covering hospital medicine and general practice, including recruitment, foundation, core and specialty training, medical education centres, courses and more.

Nurses and midwives

We recognise the important role which nurses and midwives play. We need to ensure we have the right number of nurses and midwives, with the right skills, values and behaviours, to deliver care at the right time and place.

Emergency care

We recognize that emergency care is a very important part of the service which we deliver. We recently set up a taskforce to look out at how we provide emergency care and educational solutions for recruitment, retention and progression into new roles. We understand that the development of non-medical workforce is a priority.
