Dear colleague,

At Health Education England, we are taking part in a global study to understand how staff working in health and care are learning and what they need to do their job.

With technology developing so fast, it's important that we continue to make learning accessible to everyone in health and care, when you need it and in a way that works for you.

Confidentiality - your views are being gathered confidentially on our behalf by research company Towards Maturity. You don't have to provide your contact details unless you'd like to be contacted directly about your comments. The questions should take around 15 minutes to complete. When you're finished, you'll be taken to a page where you can ask questions or leave further feedback.

Ready? Let's get started!
 
 
Asking challenging questions is at the heart of what we do at Towards Maturity. We recognise your contribution and treat your data with the respect, dignity and utmost confidentiality it deserves. This is reflected in our Privacy Policy within our Terms and Conditions.
