What we do


HEE* Quality Strategy and Framework

Health Education England (HEE)* supports the delivery of high-quality health education in a safe learning environment across England. We have a duty to continuously overserve, assess and improve the quality of education and training which upholds the skills and behaviours outlined within the NHS constitution.


In order to effectively support the delivery of high quality of education and training across England, HEE* introduced the HEE* Quality Strategy (pdf) and HEE Quality Framework (pdf). The strategy and framework describes a multi-professional and risk-based approach to quality management.
