Study your way
Predominantly remote learning, so you can be flexible with your time

Developed by HEE and HEIs across England – and in conjunction with an advisory group featuring representatives from partner organisations – the Blended Learning programme has been established to address national shortages in clinical expertise and to offer predominantly virtual,  remote-access study to individuals unable to study for a healthcare role in a traditional fashion.

This programme will be trialled via a nursing degree programme, to start in early 2021. Trainee nurses will have easy access to new and emerging technologies, helping them and their employing trusts to meet the requirement for strong digital capabilities, whilst also furnishing the NHS will an up-to-date, adaptable workforce.

The aims of this programme are to:

“Provide a technology framework that enables student-led provision, online communities of practice leading to development of engaged and self -directed learners with strong digital capabilities”

“Develop flexible, adaptable, resilient, curious, collaborative learners and professionals”

“Attract greater numbers and a more diverse student population into the health profession”

“Create a significantly different offer in healthcare professional education, that will support the growth of a qualitatively different, expert and professional workforce suited to the demands of care now and in the future”

“Fully exploit digital technologies to deliver fully interactive and integrated programmes including immersive technologies like Virtual and Augmented Reality”
