CPD-Apply (NHS Trust or CCG) funded in the Health Education North West (HENW) region
If you are employed by NHS Trust or CCG within North West England, you may be eligible for funding from Health Education North West (HENW) through CPD-Apply. Further details about this scheme are given below, but please contact your Trust or CCG Training Officer/CPD Lead before submitting a funding application, as budgets are limited and are allocated by HENW for the financial year (April – March) as opposed to the academic year (August - July).
If you are employed within the Health Education North West (HENW) region but outwith Trust or CCG (e.g. Care Home) you may be eligible for HENW funding. Please contact the non-NHS HENW representative to make enquiries, email: email@example.com.
In February/March each year, North West Universities running CPD courses for Health Professionals are invited to upload their module lists to CPD-Apply for the forthcoming financial year. At this point, you can submit funding applications to your Trust or CCG on a module-by-module basis.
On submission of your funding request, an email will go to your Line Manager (with the exception of NWAS) who must respond to the email before the request goes forward to the CPD-Apply Lead within your Trust or CCG, who will approve funding if this is available. Only when funding is approved on CPD-Apply does your application come through as an alert to the University. When the University approves your application on CPD-Apply, money transfers to the University in payment for your module.
If funding is not approved through CPD-Apply by your Trust or CCG, the University does not receive any payment for your module, and the Invoicing Team will raise an invoice to you.
Given the above, it is important for you to check the following:
- your internal funding application procedures,
- that CPD-Apply funding is available to you,
- that your funding application is approved on the CPD-Apply system prior to the start date of your course and start date of each subsequent module (if you are seeking funding for more than one module).
