HEE National Education and Training Survey (NETS)


The National Education and Training Survey (NETS) is the first multi-professional learner survey for all healthcare learners, offering a unique insight into learner perceptions of the clinical learning environment which will be a vital tool in the quality management process. NETS seeks to gather feedback on clinical placements. It does not ask questions about programmes or courses or learning in non-clinical settings (e.g. universities). It is therefore important that, for those who it is applicable to, you also complete the National Student Survey (NSS).


It is intended to provide a critical source of evidence for standards contained within the HEE Quality Framework as well as for the national HEE Quality Dashboard, which is currently under development. The intention is that the multi-professional aspect will improve consistency and inclusivity in the analysis of placement quality, as well as remove the duplication and inconsistency in learner surveys that are currently administered across HEE.


Implementation of the NETS will enable good practice to be identified and shared nationally, as well as highlight areas of risk to be addressed. This data is then analysed and fed back to key stakeholders, such as training providers and approved education providers.
