Technology Enabled Care Services practice learning toolkit now available

Unlocking Placement Capacity Toolkit

A new Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) toolkit for students, educators and universities has been developed by Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and the University of Winchester. It offers a framework to prepare, supervise and evaluate students’ practice learning opportunities in a TECS environment.

The toolkit has been developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic with students now undertaking some placements online. It aims to support creativity and innovation while providing a structure in the way TECS placements are offered to ensure patient safety and appropriate practice learning.

An overview of 3 aspects of TECS are available within the toolkit:

  • section 1 gives an overview of how students, educators and universities best prepare for TECS placements, including some practical tools
  • section 2 discusses student supervision, the various methods of teaching students and record keeping in a virtual environment
  • section 3 introduces an audit and quality assurance framework to formally assess student TECS placements, evaluate and improve virtual placements in a systematic way

The TECS toolkit is aimed at students, educators and universities across all allied health professions. For more information and to access the toolkit, visit the TECS Practice Learning Toolkit.
