Building placement capacity

Nurse using sanitiser

Read and download our new employer briefing on building placement capacity.

The document outlines some of the approaches and strategies currently being explored by NHS organisations to increase placement capacity and offers some options for fellow employers to consider.

This briefing is informed by our discussions with employers, whose ambitions and motivations to meet the increase in students, as outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan and Interim People plan, is clear.

The resource focuses on three areas: identifying practice supervisors, managing and exploring new placements and introducing models that support effective learning in practice. It may be a useful document to share with nursing education teams or form part of discussions about how you might scale up capacity in your region.

Download and read the briefing.
