The National Education and Training Survey (NETS) is now open and will close on the 30th November. 

About the NETS

At Health Education England (HEE), our job is to support you to learn to deliver excellent care to patients by ensuring that you are supported to work in a safe clinical environment.  We do this by working with employers, the GMC and health and care providers to ensure that key requirements, such as good induction programmes, clinical supervision and access to learning opportunities, are in place and available to all trainees.

The NETS is the only national survey open to all health and care trainees and students across all clinical learning environments. As you will know, the full GMC National Training Survey did not run this year due to the covid-19 pandemic, so NETS provides an opportunity for us to gather some information about your experiences in training.  

You understand your learning environment better than anyone else.

You know the clinical learning environment in which you work and train better than anyone else and your feedback is important in identifying when things are working well and when they could be better.  The NETS is an opportunity to say what you think about the quality of your clinical learning environment, including areas of good practice.

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, you may be undertaking a clinical placement or rotation during a pandemic surge.  It is important that we understand the impact of the pandemic on your education and training to identify how we can support all students and trainees during this challenging time and beyond.  Your feedback is vital in understanding the standards of care provided to patients. 

The survey takes just 10 minutes and your experiences will help to make real changes to improve the student experience.

If you have not received an invite to complete the survey, please email NETS@hee.nhs.uk so that you can receive a personalised link to a version of the survey that has been prepopulated with your training programme information.
