Why does HEE support the Bridging Programme?

As well as being responsible for the training and development of the medical and clinical workforce, each HEE Area has dedicated staff whose responsibility it is to ensure the development of the support workforce.

To that end, HEE supports the Skills for Health Bridging Programme through its network of HEE Area leads responsible for widening participation across not only the NHS workforce but those staff working in the community delivering NHS services.

The current HEE commitment to enacting the Talent for Care Strategy re-iterates the need to support the progression of the healthcare support workforce into health professions for those who seek it. The development of the Skills for Health Bridging Programme - which has the potential to increase the numbers of care assistants able to progress to health related vocational programmes in Higher Education – is therefore supported by HEE and its Area staff.
