About the System Workforce Planning programme

The System Workforce Planning elearning resource has been developed by Health Education England (HEE) working across the West Midlands, in partnership with HEE elearning for healthcare. It provides a practical and easy-to-use four-step process to workforce planning within a system. Tools and techniques guide you through each of the four steps with a worked-through example.

The resource is aimed at anyone involved in Workforce Planning within a system, at both a strategic and operational level. STPs, Workstream leads and Commissioners can use this resource to help them identify what the purpose and objectives of the system are and what the boundaries and pathways they need to focus on. At an operational level, activities, competences, activity and productivity data, roles and location can then be determined using an activity analysis, which builds an action plan and workforce plan for the system.
