Multiprofessional Trainer Resource Portal launched!

Newham CEPN is delighted to unveil a newly developed on-line resource portal.

This is an HENCEL initiative to support GP Practices become multi-professional learning organisations and is hosted by Newham CEPN (Community Education Provider Network).

The aim of this online resource pack is to:

  • Provide information about the benefits of becoming a primary care training organisation.
  • Explore the different professional roles and responsibilities associated with education in a community setting.
  • Share the resources available to support practices and professionals wanting to become training organisations.


It is a Multi- Professional Training Resource Pack designed to provide accessible information, guidance and resources to enable North Central East London (NCEL) General Practices to develop into multi- professional learning organisations. It is ideal for exploring the various training roles, responsibilities and opportunities within general practice and explaining the requirements for each professional to become a formal trainer or mentor to students and existing staff.

A mandate from the Government to Health Education England: April 2015 to March 2016 highlights the role of the ‘educator’ or ‘trainer’, in the context of delivering excellent education and training, is of vital importance and must be seen as an essential part of the healthcare professional’s role and responsibilities.

GP’s, Practice Nurses and Practice Managers can all play a vital role in providing training for the future general practice workforce. The portal is structured to provide information on training pathways for each profession, there are many advantages to having multi-professional trainees learning together in general practice.

This resource portal includes written case studies, video interviews and testimonies from trainers, mentors and students in General Practice; links to web resources and organisations for further information, as well as examples of good practice emerging around workforce development in General Practice within NCEL.
