What is a CEPN?
Community Education Provider Networks (CEPNs) are arrangements which support healthcare providers through the skilling up their staff and creating education and training events. The Enfield CEPN is a multi-agency body that works in partnership in our local community with different organisations to:
- Support workforce planning
- Respond to local workforce need
- Support workforce development
- Coordinate and develop education and training programmes for the health and social care workforce that is relevant to local need
- Ensure educational quality
We are funded by Health Education England – North Central East London (HEE:NCEL)
Who are our partners?
The CEPN is made up of organisations and individuals who contribute to its development and progress. We are hosted by NHS Enfield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and are guided by a steering group which meets monthly and is chaired by John Piesse, Head of Primary Care for the NHS Enfield CCG.

Aims of the CEPN
Enfield Community Education Provider Network aims to work cooperatively and collaboratively across organisational and professional boundaries to support the professional development of all those working in health and social care. We believe access to good quality education and training can empower staff to deliver enhanced quality care and better manage the challenges of working in the modern health and social care sector.
We fully support the integrated care agenda. We have developed and promote the following values we believe are necessary for the success of integrated care.
- Understanding and respecting others’ roles and responsibilities in caring
- Demonstrating transparency and honesty
- Promoting autonomy, independence and self-management
- Collaborative approach in the planning and delivery of care
- Caring and compassionate approach to protect people from harm
- Person centred approach
