Now is an exciting time for AHPs in NHS Scotland with many opportunities to expand and develop our roles. Education is at the heart of these changes and within NES, we are leading the way for AHP education and development.
In this section, you can access information about our current work, download publications and you will find links to education that are relevant to AHPs on the Turas Learn site.
The AHP Careers Fellowship Scheme supports career development for the AHP workforce in the public health and social care sector in Scotland. It does this by funding AHP staff to participate in a learning programme and to lead and deliver a work-based project.
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 higher and 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.
Find out more about what we are doing in our AHP practice education section of the website.
