Alder Hey Academy

Alder Hey Academy

Welcome to the Alder Hey Academy...

Here at Alder Hey we are committed to the education, training and development of both our current and future workforce to ensure the delivery of safe, high quality compassionate care. The Academy was formed in 2019 and brings together medical education (including our Library and Knowledge Services), non-medical education, learning & development and apprenticeships as well as our work with local schools and colleges. Our courses, events and activities all support us to achieve Our People Plan [link] 


Each year we provide over 1500 placements to medical, nursing and allied health students and we support postgraduate medical trainees, those on work experience and visiting clinicians from the UK and abroad. The Academy also co-ordinates learning and development activities for staff across the Trust as well as managing apprenticeships, co-ordinating our careers and work experience programmes and hosting a wide range of courses and events.  


We work with a range of external partners including higher education institutions (HEIs), further education colleges, workforce and education networks across Cheshire and Merseyside, the wider North West as well as national networks and other external bodies. We are also engaged in national level programmes and projects led by Health Education England (HEE). Our work is influenced by national and local priorities, which are constantly evolving and which requires us to be flexible in our approach to deliver this strategy.

Technology Enhanced Learning

Innovative educational technologies, such as virtual / immersive technologies, e-learning, simulation and apps provide unprecedented opportunities for health and social care students, trainees and staff to acquire, develop and maintain the essential knowledge, skills, values and behaviours needed for safe and effective patient care.

Our state of the art Institute in the Park on our main Alder Hey campus hosts much of the education and training that takes place for the Trusts 4,000+ staff as well as being home to our undergraduate and postgraduate students and trainees.
