Co-designing the Safe Learning Environment Charter in the south west

20 June 2023

person presenting in a class roomThe Safe Learning Environment Charter project focuses to enhance the learning environment and reduce student attrition for nursing, midwifery, allied health professionals, pharmacy, and healthcare science students in the south west. This month, we visited midwifery students as part of our co-design event series to discuss the project's themes and gather their feedback.

The project began in 2022 with a nationally coordinated quality review focusing on pre-registration midwifery education and training in the south west, which was later expanded to include other professionals nationwide.

The Health and Society Knowledge Exchange at the University of Cumbria analysed the review's data and identified 10 overarching themes. These themes were then used for the co-design phase of the project, which began with a series of workshops.

Our Senior Project Manager (Quality), Amelia Amon and Senior Workforce Lead (Nursing and Midwifery), Lucy Duncombe met with midwifery students at the University of the West of England (UWE) to discuss the charter themes.

“It was great to meet so many enthusiastic and engaged professionals. We will combine their feedback with the comments we collected in our virtual co-design sessions and finalise the Safe Learning Environment Charter for launch at the beginning of the next academic year.” Amelia Amon, Senior Project Manager (Quality).
