NES Launches New e-Learning Modules to Support Staff with their CPD and Career Development


17-July-2017

NHS Education for Scotland today launched a new range of e-learning modules and an animation designed to help health and social care staff make the most of CPD and plan for future career development.

Developed by NES’ Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professionals (NMAHP) team, the modules are relevant to staff across the health and social care workforce and can be accessed via NES’ new digital platform Turas.

The modules are:

Writing great applications for learning and development opportunities - helps learners develop the skills and confidence to write high quality applications when applying for learning and development opportunities such as the AHP Career Fellowship Scheme and the NMAHP ehealth leadership programme.

Identifying your learning needs for continuing professional development (CPD) and career development - helps identify learners’ current level of practice and learning needs across the four pillars (clinical practice; facilitation of learning; leadership; and evidence research and development) and supports creation of a personal development plan.

Developing and maintaining clinical skills in the practice setting – helps learners consider the clinical skills they use across the four pillars of practice, identifies learning requirements and highlights resources to support knowledge and skills development.

CPD Animation - The team have also developed a short whiteboard animation that focuses on the importance of CPD and introduces different ways to access learning opportunities.

The CPD animation and the first two modules, Writing great applications for learning and development opportunities and Identifying your learning needs for continuing professional development (CPD) and career development, are available now on Turas. The third module will be released in the coming weeks.
