Health Education England’s Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team’s e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) and Learning Hub platforms have been featured as recommended resources in the NHS People Plan 2020/2021.
The plan, which aims to support the NHS’s 1.3 million workers throughout the rest of 2020 and 2021, was published on 30 July 2020 with key advice signposting the healthcare workforce to e-LfH and the Learning Hub for their training and education needs.
To date there have been more than 8.6 million sessions launches in 2020 and e-LfH still remains a go-to training programme for the health and care workforce.
In May, HEE’s TEL team launched the Learning Hub which allows stakeholders from across the health and care workforce, such as clinical commissioning groups, professional bodies and charities, to access and contribute resources including videos, webinars, slide presentations and Q&A packs.
The NHS People Plan sets out what the people of the NHS can expect from their leaders and each other for the remainder of 2020 and 2021. It focuses on how staff need to continue looking after each other, to grow and train the workforce and work together differently to deliver patient care.
Dr Neil Ralph, Head of Technology Enhanced Learning at Health Education England, said: “We are delighted to see e-LfH and the Learning Hub highlighted in the NHS People Plan. The recognition for two of our platforms is testament to the consistently high-quality e-learning sessions we develop for the NHS healthcare workforce and the resources now available to the wider workforce. Our platforms provide a range of learning resources, from anaesthesia to audiology, dentistry to dermatology, emergency medicine to end of life care, primary care to prescribing, safeguarding children to statutory and mandatory training.”
