Actions to increase placement capacity

Student nurses

Our latest briefing on placement capacity has been designed to help employers reflect on what more they can do to increase and sustain capacity in their organisations.

With the call for higher education institutions to boost intake to courses such as nursing and the allied health professions, employers are facing the challenge of how to expand the number of clinical placements they offer to students who require them as part of their training.

Based on conversations with organisations who have already grown their capacity, this document is set out under six themes, each with key questions and actions designed to help employers reflect on what more they can do to increase placement capacity in a way that is sustainable for their organisation.
