Southwark Training Hub

Training Hubs, previously known as CEPNs, are commissioned and supported by Health Education England as networks of education and service providers based in the community, established in 2015.  They are tasked with increasing capacity for future workforce training in the community and the development of current and future workforce around the needs of a geographically defined population. 

Expectation from training hubs is to work across boundaries to educate multidisciplinary workforce, transform education training and retention to meet the needs of the population served, provide financial framework and quality assurance whilst aiming to cover the whole ICS/STP area.
