NHS Education for Scotland invites you to take part in our second Support Workforce Online Learning Week from Monday 2 to Friday 6 October 2023. We will be hosting bite sized sessions for the support workforce across health and social care sectors.


This is an opportunity to:

  • Take time to reflect and celebrate your achievements over the last year
  • Network with colleagues


Target audience:

  • Support workforce across all health boards and health and social care partnerships
  • Working in NHS Nursing, Midwifery, Allied Health, Business and Administration, Estates and Facilities, primary care teams and independent sectors
  • Managers and educators of the support workforce (a component of the programme will be dedicated to this group)


What will the learning week cover?

Online sessions on a range of topics to help your learning and development in your current role, and support you taking any next steps. You can participate in real time or view recorded sessions at a time to suit you.
