Funding to support your continuous professional development (CPD) 

We have various funding streams that can be used for you to attend training courses to develop your career. It can support short courses, conferences and university level modules which commence before the end of the financial year (1 April – 31 March). It cannot be used for mandatory training such first aid, basic life support, or safeguarding. This can be accessed by the non-medical, primary care workforce in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (unfortunately it is not available for GPs). 


There is so much more to apprenticeships than you might think. They are for anyone, at any age, and another route into employment with their own benefits. This includes gaining more hands-on practical experience than you would with a university degree alone. It is great for people who love to learn and get stuck in! 
We can help support primary care colleagues into apprenticeships and GP Practices to set up new apprenticeships. Get in contact with us to discuss.
