Education and Training
Our innovative education and training is based on two principal features: high quality learning materials and effective academic and clinical teaching and learning provided by locally based Trainers suitable for staff working in bands 1-7. Our network of 80 trainers are practicing clinicians; their local experience means they understand the needs of service and population demands of patients and students alike which therefore makes study relevant to everyday practice and illustrates challenging concepts with real life patient stories.
As an organisation we are convinced that good quality education is the key to improving patients' health outcomes and quality of life. Everything we do is designed to impact positively on patients' lives through better diagnosis, treatment and management. However, treatments and management strategies will be ineffective if professional and patients don't understand or use them properly. We offer a wide range of one day skills workshops and flexible Diploma and Degree modules.
We can make it easy for you to organise healthcare training in your area; you can book a course to run in your location and we can bring the trainer to you.

Education for Health's current blended learning portfolio offers students the flexibility of our validated diploma and degree modules which can be studied as standalone modules to enhance your clinical skills and knowledge, or you can choose to follow our flexible pathway to a Diploma or Degree qualification. We offer blended learning with interactive assessment and study days in your local area to provide access for those students who find difficulty in being released and also to provide strong unions for continued staff development, integrating national and regional competencies across health and social care.
Our whole approach focuses on quality, clarity and value for money. We are able to help our customers and partners to identify, define, purchase and evaluate education which will lead to the NHS having the right workforce in the right place with the right skills at the right time.
Our flexible programmes could give you the opportunity to "top up" your DipHE in Nursing (or equivalent) to obtain a degree that is both relevant and clinically focused and will enable you to progress up the career ladder.
