Local Education and Training Boards

LETBs bring education, training and development together locally in order to improve the quality of care and treatment of patients through the development of skills and values for staff.

All providers of NHS services need to be a member of, and be involved with the work of the LETB.

Providers now have the opportunity to lead the education and training agenda and help decide the skills and values they require for staff and how funding is spent.


Local Education and Training Boards

The three main functions of a LETB are to:

identify and agree the local needs for education and training to deliver the right people and skills to meet future service needs

plan and commission high quality education and training in its region in order to secure future workforce supply and improve patient outcomes

bring providers and relevant stakeholders together to provide a forum for developing the whole workforce.


Local Education and Training Boards

LETBs are governed by boards that have representation from local providers on them.

The LETB Board represents the members of the LETB

The Board determines the local education and training strategy and take decisions on behalf of the LETB.

All providers within the LETB should co-operate on workforce data and the planning and provision of professional education and training

There are duties on commissioners (NHS CB and CCGs) to promote the use of service contracts to support good education outcomes.


TV LETB Board:

Brings together the leaders of service and education providers, representatives of public health, primary care and the independent sector alongside the Oxford AHSN.

The key forum for consulting about workforce and LETB strategy

Made up of a wide range of organisations that have a stake in the education and training of the healthcare and public health workforce.

The way in which members of the LETB who are not on the Board can contribute to the debate and influence decisions


Partnership Council suggested:

  • Multi-professional
  • Training programmes and assessment to require a case study of multi-disciplinary work, which demonstrates involvement and joint working with patients, partner agencies, charitable groups, family and friends

Partnership Council suggested:

Core questions to be included in assessments

  • What have I done to improve and manage my own health and well-being?
  • What have I done to empower others to improve and manage their own health and well-being?
  • Developing the wider health and care workforce in respect of public health
