National Education Training Survey (NETS)

The survey is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students and doctors and dentists 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.​​

 Why is the NETS important?

  • In November 2021, over 49% of learners told us that they are not aware of who their local Freedom to Speak Guardian was.​​
  • 94% of learners confirmed that they knew how to raise concerns in the clinical learning environment, but only 81% felt comfortable to do so.​​
  • 15% of learners reported experiencing bullying and/or harassment in their most recent clinical/practice placement or training post.
