Supporting Learning in the Workplace

Supporting Learning in the Workplace

NES has been supporting the Allied Health Professions with learning in their workplace since 2006. Since that time we have built a network of people dedicated to leading practice education in each of the health boards. We lead projects, develop websites and produce resources to support a wide range of learning and educational activities. We work closely with higherand further education in Scotland to help Allied Health Professionals to
maintain good learning and teaching experiences for students within practice settings.

We began life as the 'AHP Practice Education Facilitation (PEF) Programme' and we continue to evolve and shape in response to changes in health care delivery and education. We're here to support you whether you're a Practice Education Lead (PEL), a practice educator or thinking about a career in practice education.

There's a lot happening in Practice Education - you can read more about what we do, who we are and our Strategy. More importantly, we want to hear from you, so please say hello. Contact the team via e-mail at
