LBR | Learning Beyond Registration

Key Information

Learning Beyond Registration (LBR) provides the opportunity for post registration healthcare professionals (excluding doctors and dentists) to access a wide range of educational activity to develop competent, capable practioners appropriately prepared to deliver a dynamic, flexible, quality, client focused service.

In April 2014 Health Education East Midlands (HEEM) entered in to contracts with twelve (12) regional education providers for the provision of a wide range of professional healthcare education. Eligible healthcare staff irrespective of their location in region, can access LBR funded activity at any of these twelve (12) centres. This enables our learners to access a broader portfolio of development modules under the core contract. The twelve education providers are:

Coventry University         NCORE
De Montfort University       University of Northampton
University of Derby         Nottingham Trent University
Education for Health         University of Nottingham
University of Leicester         Sheffield Hallam University
University of Lincoln         University of Sheffield

A proportion of the LBR budget has been devolved directly to HEEM’s Local Workforce Teams for them to commission both bespoke training from contracted providers, and flexible education and training that is not available within the contracts, to meet local workforce needs.

Access and Eligibility

Funding for modules is provided by HEEM to eligible healthcare professionals employed to deliver NHS funded services, providing the learner and the module meet eligibility criteria. If you work within the East Midlands region you will need to contact the relevant lead in your organisation to check the local process for applying for LBR funding (start with your local Training Department or similar). If you work in the private, voluntary or independent sector please contact your Local Workforce LBR Lead. Contact information can be accessed on our LBR Contacts Page.

Staff should apply directly with the education provider concerned. However it is essential that applicants obtain approval from their designated authorised LBR signatory to approve the application and local policies/processes are followed.

Please note: HEEM does not have any additional funds to support individual enquires so it is imperative that you engage with local processes.
