Promoting Excellence In Psychological Health & Wellbeing

The National Education and Training Survey (NETS) is now open!

19 Oct 22

Health Education England's National Education and Training Survey (NETS) opened on Tuesday 18 October 2022 and will remain live for six weeks until 30 November 2022. The survey can be accessed HERE.

In 2021, over 25,000 learners completed the NETs, but only received 82 responses from learners and trainees across the psychological professions. We’re seeking psychological profession leaders and educators who can help increase the psychological profession response.

Dr Adrian Whittington, National Clinical Lead for Psychological Professions at NHS England and Health Education England, said:

"If you are a trainee psychological professional, we want to hear from you. The annual National Education and Training Survey (NETS) is your chance to have your say about the ups and downs of the psychological professions training you are undergoing.”

This means Health Education England can learn and respond, so that training carries on improving. Please take a few minutes to respond to the brief survey, or your voice will not be heard!"

NETs is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as apprentices 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.​ 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. To find out more, visit the NETs webpage.
