How to apply for
Humber, Coast and Vale funding
HCV (Humber, Coast and Vale) funding
Health Education England in the Humber, Coast and Vale area fund a number of places on our accredited and non-accredited courses. This includes funding towards our MSc degrees, postgraduate certificates, stand-alone modules and CPD short courses. Those to which this applies is indicated below.
Funding is available within the academic year and is not guaranteed to continue beyond that.
Applicants must meet the entry criteria for the programme.
When you apply for one of our courses you should indicate on the online application form that you will fund it yourself. You may then take the course information to your employer to apply for funding from one of two sources: Workforce Development or CPD.
If your funding request is approved by your Workforce Development Lead (or equivalent) and Line Manager we will be able to draw down funds from Health Education England and you will not be charged.
To facilitate this you will need to complete the funding form below. It will need to be signed by your Workforce Development Lead (or equivalent) and Line Manager to indicate their approval. Please email completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org
Funded places are limited. We will confirm whether there is sufficient HCV funding for your application. If your funding request is not approved, you may either fund it yourself or withdraw your application.
Modules, Postgraduate Certificates and MSc degrees
For modules, Postgraduate Certificates and MSc degrees, you should be able to attend all taught elements of the module (unless by specific prior written request) and be able to undertake the assessed work in the specified time. Failure to undertake or complete the assessed work (having accepted a funded place) may result in you being invoiced for the total cost of the module. Health Education Humber, Coast and Vale will be notified of non-attendance.
Workforce Development funding may be accessed by all non-medical staff within NHS health and care providers if:
- The applicant is employed by an organisation providing NHS commissioned services within the Humber, Coast and Vale geographical area - see boundaries
- The course helps applicants meet organisational priorities
- Approval is given by the applicant’s Line Manager and the Workforce Development Lead (or equivalent)
CPD funding is yet to be confirmed. We understand that it is allocated to NHS trusts on the basis of headcount of eligible professions but likely to be managed locally through Health Education Humber, Coast and Vale. We hope to have a process in place where we can draw down funding but it is possible you may have to pay our fees and then claim them back from your employer. Applicants from outside the Humber, Coast and Vale area will have to do this, or provide us with details of the trust to be invoiced.
