Learning and Development Agreement

The Learning and Development Agreement (LDA) document lists all education, training and learning activity commissioned by Health Education England in Wessex (HEE WES) and provides the framework for the delivery of practice learning and teaching to support workforce development.
The LDA is part of National Standard Contract Framework and is signed by HEE WES on behalf of Health Education England.

All NHS organisations across Wessex have signed up to the LDA and as an increasing number of practice placement opportunities are being sought outside of the NHS, work is underway to include these organisations in the same arrangements. Work to review the LDA to provide a national template has now been concluded.


The LDA includes:

⇒ practice placement training for medical and dental students

⇒ practice placements for non-medical professional and vocational students

⇒ post graduate training for doctors

⇒ learning beyond registration, salary support and widening participation

⇒ infrastructure related to education and training

⇒ other support for training activities

For more information about the LDA please email learning.wx@hee.nhs.uk
