About us


The department was established in December 2002 to work in close partnership with key stakeholders, including higher educational institutions, the Workforce Development Confederation (WDC), Health Education England working across the East Midlands (HEEM) Local and Education Training Board (LETB) (formerly known as the East Midlands Healthcare Workforce Deanery) and standard setting and professional colleagues and other bodies. We provide a central point within the Trust responsible for coordinating all clinical education and training activities and deciding on strategic direction.

Here at UHL we believe that the most important resource the NHS has is its people. Without a skilled workforce there is no NHS. There are few careers that are as rewarding as one in the NHS, or that give you the opportunity to work with such a variety of people. Each and every one can make a difference to patients. Our vision is to provide the right workforce, with the right skills and values, in the right place at the right time to better meet the needs and wants of patients – now and in the future.
