About Us

Initiated by Health Education England, the Health and Education Co-operative was initially set up to deliver online learning in the health care sector. We now offer an online learning platform for use across a range of sectors, as well as online learning materials for healthcare professionals.
The Health and Education Co-operative is run by five university partners, who have come together to share knowledge and standardise on-line learning materials.

Directors include:

Prof Robin Talbot (Chair)
Sam Sherrington – Chair Association of Prescribers
Dr Jane Howarth – University of Bolton
Prof Margaret Rowe – University of Salford
Alison Hampson – University of Cumbria
Jeanette Grey – University of Central Lancashire
Angela Simpson – University of Chester
Carole Spencer – Innovation Agency
