Who is the LEiC Education and Development Framework for?

Add to favourites

Whilst the National EiC approach first focused on nurses and midwives there is recognition of the valuable contribution of allied health professionals (AHPs) delivering care as part of the multi-disciplinary team. Plans are in place to enhance EiC to include the contribution of AHP’s, this framework has been designed to include all NMAHP leaders from the outset.

The LEiC Education and Development Framework is for all NMAHPs who are:

  • leaders (or aspiring to the role)
  • line managers/KSF reviewers/NHS Boards & Organisations
  • education providers
