About us

Workforce, Training and Education Directorate

The Workforce, Training and Education Directorate, formerly part of Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only – to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England. We ensure that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time, and in the right place.


The Wessex Team is part of the NHS England Workforce, Training and Education Directorate in the South East region. Wessex covers a broad area; spanning across Hampshire, Isle of Wight, South Wiltshire, Dorset and the Channel Islands. The Wessex local office is based in Southampton, Hampshire. Wessex is rightly proud of the reputation it has as a “great place to train and learn”, and through listening and responding to your feedback, will maintain the high standards set and achieved so far.

For more information about Wessex, please view the Wessex region map and the Living in Wessex pages.
