System Workforce Planning e-learning

A new e-learning programme called System Workforce Planning has been launched on Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) Hub.

The e-learning resource provides a practical and easy-to-use four-step process to workforce planning within a system, with tools and techniques to guide learners through each of the four steps with a worked-through example.

The resource, which was developed by e-LfH and HEE working across the West Midlands, is aimed at anyone involved in Workforce Planning within a system, at both a strategic and operational level. Sustainable Transformation Partnerships, workstream leads and commissioners can use this resource to help them identify what the purpose and objectives of the system are and what the boundaries and pathways they need to focus on. At an operational level, activities, competences, activity and productivity data, roles and location can then be determined using an activity analysis, which builds an action plan and workforce plan for the system.
