What are Health Education England credentials?
A credential is a unit of assessed learning related to a particular area of practice awarded by an education provider, normally at Masters level.
Health Education England has commissioned the development of the overarching framework from which a curriculum is developed, where a credential already exists e.g. a Royal Medical College, there will be a mechanism by which Health Education England will recognise these.
The Centre of Advancing Practice will validate the credentials if it meets the multi-professional requirements and quality assurance processes.
Once validated, a credential can be delivered and awarded by an education provider.
