Is your department missing out on £55,000?*

Health Education England pays Local Education and Training Board commissioned placement providers £3112 per student x Market Forces Factor for a full year’s placement.  This amount was reduced by 2% from previous years in April 2017.

The Education and Training Tariff can pay for teaching and learning support including:

  • Direct staff teaching time in the clinical placement
  • Teaching and student facilities, including access to the library services
  • Administration costs
  • Education supervisor
  • Formal examining
  • Pastoral and supervisory support
  • In-course feedback and assessment
  • Staff training and development relating to their educational role

If you train students for more than one week a year, your organisation will receive the Education and Training Tariff. This may be paid to your department, but frequently this is not the case.  Managers should enquire with their finance teams regarding how it is disseminated and used.

Health Education England provides some information about the Tariff:

The latest Tariff guidelines are published by the Department for Health:

For local questions about the Education and Training Tariff and its implementation please contact your local Health Education England office.

*Based on 41 students on placement for 40% of a year in a hospital with the mean 2017-2019 Market Forces Factor (1.0809).
