New elearning programme to support newly qualified AHPs

Posted on: December 14th, 2021 by Hannah Denness No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked in partnership with Canterbury Christ Church University, Kent and Medway AHP Faculty and HEE to develop a new elearning programme to support newly qualified Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) transition to the workplace.

Step to Work aims to support AHPs – before they begin their transition from education to employment in health and social care settings – with guidance, support and practical tools to help them reflect on the knowledge they have already gained and how their experiences will help them in future roles.

Preceptorship programmes are provided by the NHS and other employers to help newly registered staff make sense of their new status but usually after they have begun work.

The programme consists of 8 sessions:

  • Positive appraisal of learning
  • Personal wellbeing at work
  • Characteristics of everyday work as an Allied Health Professional
  • Understanding the different systems that shape everyday work
  • Ethics, accountability and decision making
  • Developing and working in an inclusive environment
  • Building positive relationships with patients
  • Sustaining change and responsiveness

More information, including access details, is available on the Step to Work programme page.

New Supporting AHP Students elearning programme launched

Posted on: August 31st, 2021 by Leanne Hargreaves No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with Health Education England’s AHP team and the University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust to launch a new supporting allied health professionals (AHP) student elearning programme.


The aim of this course is to provide non-registered AHP assistants and support staff with training to develop their understanding of student education and to develop their skills in supporting students and educators within their teams. During this course, users will learn about the student journey, from the beginning of their studies to qualification and how practice placements form part of their learning. The resource will also offer an understanding of what is expected from students during placement, how to give feedback to students and educators and how to recognise and support a student who may be struggling. By developing these skills, non-registered staff will be able to contribute to the delivery of practice placement education, improving the quality and capacity of placements.

The following sessions are now available:

  • Health and Wellbeing Part 1: Resilience
  • Health and Wellbeing Part 2: Why Might a Student Struggle on Placement?


For more information about the elearning, including how to access it, please visit the HEE elfh Supporting AHP Students programme page.
