Digital education

As an enabling function, Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) aims to support the health and social care workforce to use technologies and techniques to improve patient care.

Learning Hub

TEL identified the need for an easy to access, national learning solution for the health and social care workforce. The Learning Hub includes resources contributed by NHS colleagues and those developed in collaboration with TEL. Users will find videos, guidance documents, virtual reality resources on a range of topics, organised in catalogues.

Currently in a beta phase for the NHS health and social workforce, features in the Learning Hub continue to be developed and launched on a priority basis. 

In the future, the TEL team aim to transition the Learning Hub to a public beta phase, where the platform is open for use on the internet. After further developments, the platform will go live and move into its maintenance and gradual development phase.

Anyone with an NHS email address or university email address can register on the Learning Hub or login with their elfh hub details.

For more information about the learning hub project, please email tel@hee.nhs.uk and visit the TEL Blog.
