The WYHEC belongs to a network of National Skills Academy for Health (NSAH) Excellence Centres which unite employers from the NHS, independent and voluntary sectors and quality assured education and training providers - to coordinate, establish and implement high quality skills programmes.

This collaborative approach aims to enhance the effectiveness of staff recruitment, development, progression and gives healthcare employers a vital, leading role in informing the sector’s skills development provision on both a local and national scale.
