What are they?
Education days are your educational update days for all staff with patient contact, both registered and non-registered. Because of the variety of skill mixes, roles, and scopes of practice they are split into several different formats.
They will cover a variety of topics, and you may see the same subject on more than one type of education day, but the content being taught will be different.*
*The content will change every year, and sometimes your days will overlap years due to when you can be allocated – i.e. you may have a 2022/23 education day, followed by a 2023/24 education day a month later.
