NHS England provides Workforce Transformation Funding and Prescribing Funding to post-registration healthcare professionals (excluding doctors and dentists) to access a wide range of professional healthcare education. This was previously named SSPRD (Specialist Skills & Post Registration Development) funding. NHS England Workforce Development funding is limited and subject to availability and approval. Workforce Development funding is invested in creating transformative change in the workforce.
In West Yorkshire, a comprehensive learning needs analysis was undertaken which considered the overall workforce transformation priorities as described in the West Yorkshire People Plan. It was agreed within the West Yorkshire Delivery Group that applications for modules must be logged and authorised by the West Yorkshire Primary Care Workforce and Training Hub (PCWTH) to ensure that courses are aligned to local priorities and that Practices can confirm their support for learners.
Some modules have specific numbers and identified employing organisations (ring-fenced) in response to workforce transformation priorities and to ensure targeted and fair access to learning. This web page is designed to answer some FAQs around applying for Workforce Transformation funding for course modules and to guide you through the application process.
