Health Education England
Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only: to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England by ensuring that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.
The Technology Enhanced Learning team
HEE’s Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team use digital technology to make learning easier for those working in the NHS and the wider health and care workforce for the benefit of patients and the public. The team’s work is based on the principles of intelligence, engagement, innovation and value.
The TEL team is developing the Learning Hub. The TEL team’s work also includes leading the simulation-based education project, managing HEE e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH), being an enabler for pilot and innovation projects that include immersive technologies and other techniques, and developing digital education resources and workforce development tools.
The Learning Hub
The Learning Hub is a digital platform that provides easy access to a wide range of education and training resources for the health and care workforce.
In the Learning Hub, users can contribute digital resources (including e-learning, video, audio, images, documents, web links, articles etc) and search and access the variety of learning resources that have been contributed by organisations and the health and care workforce. Resources on the Learning Hub are not reviewed or endorsed by Health Education England. In the future, the Learning Hub will also encourage discussions to take place around the learning resources and networks to form around areas of shared interest to maximise the opportunities for collaboration and realise the potential of the resources.
The Learning Hub is designed based on users’ needs and developed using an agile, iterative approach; testing ideas with users and using their feedback to learn and improve. More features will continue to be added during the public beta phase to provide a comprehensive learning experience for users.
HEE e-Learning for Healthcare
HEE e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) works in partnership with the NHS, health and care organisations and professional bodies to support patient care by providing e-learning to educate and train the health and care workforce. All e-LfH content is nationally quality-assured and available free of charge.
There are currently more than 280 programmes being developed and delivered that cover subjects from audiology to anaesthesia, dentistry to dermatology, emergency medicine to end of life care, primary care to prescribing, sepsis to statutory and mandatory training.
All HEE e-LfH programmes are available via the HEE e-LfH Hub and most are also available via the Electronic Staff Record (ESR). Some HEE e-LfH programmes are available internationally via eIntegrity.
