The National Education and Training Survey (NETS)

The National Education and Training Survey (NETS) 

Opening again in October 2022

The NETS will open on Tuesday 18 October and remain live for six weeks until 30 November 2022.

The survey is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students and doctors and dentists in training undertaking a practice placement or training post in all healthcare services across England.​  The NETS is unique and offers a multi-professional window into the environments and services in which the current and future healthcare workforce are training and working and can identify emerging and escalating concerns.​

Why is the NETS important?

  • In November 2021, over 49% of learners told us that they are not aware of who their local Freedom to Speak Guardian was.​
  • 94% of learners confirmed that they knew how to raise concerns in the clinical learning environment, but only 81% felt comfortable to do so.​
  • 15% of learners reported experiencing bullying and/or harassment in their most recent clinical/practice placement or training post.

How to get involved

To find out more information and get involved as a survey participant, educator, training provider or employer, please contact the National Quality and Patient Safety team at nets@hee.nhs.uk.

Every survey response counts and makes a difference to the health and care workforce of today and tomorrow.   

About the NETS 

The NETS is the only national survey open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students and trainees undertaking a practice placement or training post in healthcare as part of their education and training programme. 

The survey gathers opinions from students and trainees about their time working and training in practice placements and training posts, asking them to provide feedback on what worked well and what they think could be improved. 

Every survey response, across every profession and location, counts and helps to improve the experience of current and future students and trainees.
