The National Education and Training Survey (NETS)

The NETS offers all students and trainees the opportunity to have their say on their clinical placement experience. The number of learners who took part in the NETS 2020 is up 20%, compared to 2019, with nearly 37,000 respondents. This is despite the challenges posed by the pandemic and we would like to thank everyone who took part. 

Results of the survey are now available below by region and by profession. You can also use our NETS 2020 Reporting Tool to analyse the data in your own way.  

NETS 2021 will begin this June. 




What is the NETS?

The NETS gathers opinions from students about their time in clinical placements, asking them to provide feedback on what worked well and what they think could be improved. Survey results offer universities, colleges, healthcare placement providers and HEE further insight into the quality of the clinical learning environment.

This year, as students may be undertaking clinical placements during pandemic surges, the survey provides an additional opportunity to understand their experience and any impact on the quality of training.
