Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Excellence Centre
Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Excellence Centre

The ‘centre’ is a virtual one: a partnership of organisations from the region’s health and social care sector, committed to improving access to high quality vocational training to the support workforce.

The aims of the Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West (BOB) ICS Excellence Centre are to:

  • support and encourage practical education and training collaborations, building a more flexible and motivated workforce
  • collaborate on developing and sharing learning resources, reducing costs and avoiding expensive ‘reinvention of wheels’ for all employers across the system
  • recognise and promote high quality skills development that meets the needs of the wider health and social care sector
  • partner with the best local training providers to ensure their programmes are relevant and viable
  • make it easy for employers and individuals to find and access quality learning programmes and resources
  • develop accessible career pathways and potentially promote the highest quality of apprenticeship opportunities and training

The Excellence Centre is hosted jointly by Oxford Health Learning and Development and Oxford University Hospitals Practice Development and Education team. They were recently awarded the Skills for Health Quality Mark, which means that their training provision meets a nationally recognised quality benchmark. The hosts will provide the infrastructure for the Excellence Centre but the activities will be run jointly with partners and delivered across the partnership.

ONLY MEMBERS OF THE EXCELLENCE CENTRE WILL BE ABLE TO BOOK TRAINING VIA THE SKILLS PLATFORM.
