National Care Home Education Facilitator (CHEF) Pilot

 

Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) is to lead on a £730k project which will promote and widen access for a career in social care for nurses and AHPs. Funding provided by Welsh Government will create three regional Care Home Education Facilitators (CHEFs) who will work within the care home sector in Wales. They will help to enhance the quality of student clinical education whilst directly supporting are home staff.  Similar roles are already firmly embedded within nursing and midwifery services in Health Boards in Wales to support nursing students through their training and placements.
