Skills Passport for Health

The Skills Passport for Health covers the NHS and independent sector, permanent, contract temporary and volunteer workers, clinical and non-clinical staff across all four UK countries. For the individual, the Skills Passport for Health is intended to: provide a single verified and portable career record from education to retirement, giving mobility and flexibility across the sector and beyond; speed up career progression; provide easily identification of training needs; offer a personal development planner to define and track objectives; allow easy demonstration of suitability for new role(s) or revalidation for professional registrations. For employers, the Skills Passport for Health is intended to: provide visibility of the skills and abilities of the entire workforce; reduce duplication of training and enable employers to target training more effectively and efficiently. Employer investment in more relevant training is expected to bring productivity and efficiency savings and a better skilled workforce.
