What is the Sefton Training Hub
Training hubs are designed to meet the educational needs of the multi-disciplinary primary care team, and bring together NHS organisations, community providers and local authorities.
This will provide a much broader education than the traditional single professional approach and will also support workforce planning. Training hubs will be an essential vehicle of workforce transformation due to their ability to engage multiple general practice organisations and provide consistent education and workforce planning support.
These are networks of education and service providers (NHS and non-NHS) based in the community. They are tasked with increasing capacity for future workforce training in the community and the development of the current and future workforce around the needs of a regionally defined population.
Training hubs, Advanced Training Practices, Enhanced Training Practices and Community Education Provider Networks can be used interchangeably to refer to ‘Training hubs’ activity.
As we identify solutions to common barriers and build on an agreed funding framework, our local offices are best placed to implement training hub initiatives that allow some variation in approach through a common operating model across England.
