Accessing CPD funding

In 2019 the Chancellor, Sajid Javid announced that every nurse, midwife and allied health professional working across NHS hospital and community care and general practice will have access to a personal training budget of more than £1,000 over three years to support their personal learning and development needs.

It could be used to access courses; virtual and face-to-face study days; university level accredited modules; subscriptions to clinical portals; training and associated travel costs; conferences and events relevant to the profession and practice development programmes. It should be used only to access CPD and not for backfilling or equipment. It can’t be carried over into the next financial year but can be used as part-payment for a more expensive course.

Staff should identify the CPD funding they wish to apply for in their appraisals and discussions with their managers. They will need their line manager’s support to attend training, which should be relevant to their role and align with workplace priorities.

To find out more about accessing CPD funds if working for the NHS contact your practice education or workforce development team. It’s also helpful to check existing organisational training policies and guidance.
