How the Excellence Centre model works

National Skills Academy for Health Excellence Centres act as regional hubs to develop strong collaborations between training providers and healthcare employers from the public, independent and voluntary sectors. 

Each Excellence Centre has a Regional Advisory Group, made up of employers and other stakeholders, which, in turn, work with the National Advisory Group. The Groups collaborate to identify local and national training needs and design development solutions to improve the competencies of healthcare support workers.

Smaller healthcare organisations are a particular focus of engagement, with the development process aiming to reach out to a broad range of employers including hospices, care homes, dentists, GP surgeries and pharmacies.
