Supporting employers to meet the HEE Workforce Development Plan

Helping you find the best CPD options for your staff

Health Education England (HEE) have committed £50m to help employers develop their existing workforce in 2019/20. They've clearly outlined priority areas they'd like employers to invest in in their Workforce Development Plan.

Our portfolio is wider than just the recommended courses below. Take a look at our full CPD course list. The School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences also offer CPD courses which may be of interest.
