The CLCH Academy supports new roles and new ways of working in community and primary healthcare


**In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, training has been temporarily suspended. We will update our programmes as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you have any queries, please contact our Academy team on


The CLCH Academy provides education and training opportunities which enable all community and primary care professionals to deliver effective and compassionate care.

It is a place where staff can learn together gaining skills, knowledge, academic accreditation and professional support enabling them to grow and develop their career.

The CLCH Academy supports new roles and new ways of working, such as apprentice nursing associates and other specialist apprenticeships:

  • specialist community public health nurse
  • district nurse
  • advanced clinical practitioner
  • new emergent roles in both primary and community care.

We aim to adapt to our learners' needs, developing learning interventions and educational programmes led by our expert faculty of clinical educators and our partnership with London South Bank University.

Whether you wish to develop your clinical skills competencies, current knowledge or pursue clinical academic opportunities, the CLCH Academy offers you the breadth and depth to achieve this.

CLCH is working closely with partners in public health and social care to ensure that all healthcare staff have access to essential training and guidance at this critical time.

A list of resources that we have developed and recommended can be found below:

  • CLCH PPE Infection Control Guidance – this resource provides essential information on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Infection Control in Residential, Nursing, Social and Domiciliary settings. This has been developed in collaboration with Public Health England and senior Social Care colleagues.
  • Observations – Establishing Normal to Abnormal – this resource will help you to identify key observations and explains why they are important.
  • Fluid and Nutrition Care – this resource includes information about malnutrition and hydration
  • Taking care of the unwell adult – this resource explains an assessment for an unwell patient that uses a sequential model aligned to the alphabet, that will allow you to respond and manage the most acute problem.

The purpose of the website is to support patients with their initial recovery once discharged from hospital following treatment for COVID-19.
