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 East if England, we have a separate website for our main areas of postgraduate education, which you can find by visiting the links below.
