STAR - supporting workforce transformation

Health Education England (HEE) Workforce Transformation offer and the HEE Star

So what is the HEE Star?

It's a simple, coherent framework to support workforce transformation, helping providers understand their workforce requirements and providing a range of potential solutions. 

You can find an overview of the HEE Star (with input from some of our stakeholders) in this video

It has two key functions:

  • We have developed the HEE Star as a tool to facilitate and guide workforce conversations, to assist provider systems in identifying their workforce challenges and requirements. 
  • Find out more about this element of the HEE Star in this short video 

  • The HEE Star is also an accessible, interactive tool on the HEE website: it provides a 'go to' directory containing a wealth of resources from tools and training materials to case studies, which can help provider systems explore solutions to their workforce priorities and helping them to realise the potential of workforce transformation investments.

Content can be viewed by the clinical areas outlined in the outer circle, and this is framed around the five key enablers of workforce transformation listed in the outer points of the Star: Supply, Up-skilling, New roles, New Ways of Working, and Leadership.

At the centre is the overarching goal to deliver patient-centred care, tailored to the needs, circumstances and preferences of the individual receiving care, and the orange segments symbolise the quadruple aim of the NHS Five Year Forward View with every entry included in the Star contributing towards meeting one of the four aims.

To find out more about HEE's role in workforce transformation  and explore the interactive functionality of the Star take a look at the  HEE Website, and Star TV, our series of interviews with system leaders about the impact of the HEE Star, is available through the HEE Youtube channel.
