The HE Co-operative aims to deliver quality cost effective on-line education and training products. We have an established specialism in the healthcare sector, and have been able to deliver award winning products such as our on-line Non Medical Prescribing resource, as a result of pooling the expertise from across the 5 universities.
Our business ethics
Our purpose is to carry out business on a co-operative basis for the benefit of Members, future Members and the wider community. Any profits made over the last 8 years of trading have been re-invested back into the organisation to produce cost effective resources for the good of the wider health care community.
Together we are committed to:
- Running the business in accordance with Co-operative Values and Principles.
- Treating all people fairly and with respect.
- Minimising our impact on the natural environment.
The Strategic Health Authority (which became Health Education England) requested north west universities work in partnership, and funded an initiative encouraging co-collaboration on materials to support prescribing qualifications. Over the last 8 years numerous collaborations have resulted in new products, invigilation tool.
