Health Education England has produced new tools which employers can use to demonstrate their commitment to the development of the healthcare support workforce.

Talent for care and Widening participation: it matters are two strategic frameworks developed by Health Education England (HEE) with a range of national partners, including NHS Employers. Both frameworks share a common aim to improve the quality of patient care in a system that faces a challenging future. They do so by calling on key partners to invest in, and harness the skills and competence of NHS staff employed within bands one to four, who are vital to the provision of safe, compassionate care.

The frameworks were formally launched in March 2015. HEE has now developed an action plan and implementation tool for employers and unions to use to help them make and fulfil partnership pledges to support these strategies.

Find out more, and access the strategies and implementation tool via our Widening Participation and Talent for Care web page.
