Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only: to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England by ensuring that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place. HEE’s functions are delivered through local teams across the North West, by bringing together education providers and health and social care providers to plan, train and develop the health and social care workforce. 

Our objective is to ensure that we have compassionate, knowledgeable and highly skilled people who have the education and training they need to keep the population well and deliver the best possible clinical outcomes for patients.

As Education Transformation Programme Manager, you will play a key role in a small, Integrated Care System (ICS) facing team as well as having opportunities to work across the North of England on regional programmes of work.

Your team office base will be Piccadilly Place 3 in Manchester, but you will be required to travel across the ICS geography and you must be able to work flexibility across the patch. There will be some occasional travel across the North of England. Your work will support the work of the Workforce and Education Transformation Lead and the Workforce Planning Lead for the ICS facing team. 

You will have lead responsibility for the Education Transformation Programme at an ICS level through your engagement with Higher Educational Institutes and health and social care providers as well as other organisations such as charities and voluntary groups. By ‘education transformation’, we mean that educational programmes will be transformed in terms of what trainees and students learn; how they learn and where they learn. You will play a vital role in ensuring that approaches to education are transformed by ensuring that students are ‘job-ready’ when they qualify/complete their programmes and by ensuring that those who work together, learn together, by participating in multi-professional learning.

Key work areas will include apprenticeships, widening participation, careers hubs, Enhanced Training Practices, Clinical placement capacity, learning culture, new roles and support workers.  You will support educational transformation through supporting the development of communities of practice, networks of education practice and integrated education and training. You will work with and alongside other regional programmes of work such as enabling a digitally ready workforce that is fit for the future.

You should have a background in education, training, learning and development and a good understanding of the breadth of the health and social care workforce, ideally across both primary and secondary care. You must be a self-starter used to working on your own initiative and be comfortable with ambiguity and uncertainty as the landscape continues to develop. You must be a skilled communicator and able to represent HEE at a senior level. Some knowledge of programme and project management tools and techniques is also essential.

Please note: Candidates are reminded that, if you are applying on a secondment basis, you must have agreement with your current manager that if successful you will be released for the period of the secondment.
