Investment in innovation, multi professional education and research is vital to improving the delivery and quality of patient care. The Bradford Education &Training Centre at BTHFT is dedicated to educating, training and developing our current and future workforce to support the vision of a continually learning organisation.

We have modern and well equipped teaching facilities to enhance learning, including a Simulation Centre and Technical Skills Lab where training can be delivered to share expertise and knowledge of other healthcare professionals in a supportive study environment.
