Healthcare professionals undertake post registration education to further develop their knowledge and skills. This enables them to enhance their practice and provide improved services for patients.
Postgraduate education builds on knowledge and skills from initial qualification and registration. It equips professionals with advanced knowledge and skills relevant to their professional role.
HEIW is currently undergoing a strategic review of postgraduate education with key project outcomes;
Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) provides additional support to organisations to fund the training and development of staff. Tuition fees are paid for all students who have been allocated this funding via their organisation.
