National Education and Training Survey results

Nurses reading booklet

Access the full results from the 2020 National Education and Training Survey (NETS) and read how students and learners experience of their time in clinical placements during the pandemic.

Among the results, 78 per cent of allied health professional students and 72 per cent of nursing, midwifery and nursing associate students rated their overall experience as outstanding or good and we congratulate those trusts who were able to deliver high quality placements in such difficult times.

The national survey, which is open to healthcare trainees and students across all clinical learning environments, is used to gather opinions on what has worked well and what they think could be improved. The 2020 survey included an additional opportunity to understand the experience and the impact of the pandemic on the quality of training.

Results from the survey, which are available by region and by profession, offer universities, colleges, healthcare placement providers and Health Education England further insight into the quality of the clinical learning environment.

To access the results go to Health Education England's National Education and Training Survey.
