Training Needs Analysis 2021/22
The survey is now closed.
Thank you to all who have taken part. We will be publishing the results shortly. Please watch this space.
Why is the training needs analysis needed?
Nottinghamshire Alliance Training Hub (NATH) is commissioned by Health Education England and Nottingham & Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System (ICS) to support the primary care workforce in respect of education and development needs.
By taking part in the 2021/22 Training Needs Analysis you are helping to shape the Nottingham & Nottinghamshire training, education and development offer. Your views mean NATH is better able to plan a programme of learning suited to your needs.
What do we do with the information?
The information provided to NATH gives critical evidence to support any future opportunities for the ICS to bid for learning and development funding.
The data collected assists in the planning
Continued Professional Development (CPD) training events open to the whole workforce – short sessions to update skills or knowledge
Education Programmes which support ICS priorities linked to population health management that enhance your skills and knowledge. These may be for clinical and non-clinical staff.
Education Programmes which support the primary care workforce to be strong, capable, confident and resilient.
Enable NATH to signpost people to relevant training from other providers
The collated information helps inform decisions about how we at NATH can allocate CPD and Workforce Development Funds across Nottingham & Nottinghamshire.
An announcement about the allocation for 21/22 is expected in the next few months. Information will be communicated via NATH newsletter shortly.
NATH will collate information to present a summary report based on the Primary Care Networks in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. This is to support any local discussions about workforce needs. A summary report will be available on this page at a later date.
The survey is anonymous. At the end of the survey there is a few questions where respondents can choose to leave an email address. This question is only used to correspond with individuals who request specific information. Contact details are not shared in any reporting.
Do your individual views count?
Absolutely! Although, you may have unique training needs, the workforce in the area is so large, others are likely to request or suggest similar learning requirements. Whilst we do our best to support every individual, we endeavour to get value for money when we commission training and education. If you have a specific training request, there is a link at the end of the survey where you can register your interest.
Are there other opportunities to share my views?
Yes, we are planning a number of focus groups to explore the findings in more detail. Look out for information and invitations.
You can also make contact with us directly on the contact details on the firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
Who can complete the survey?
The survey is intended ONLY for staff working primary care in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. If you work outside of this area you may want to contact your local training hub with any individual requests for training.
