Does Education need
transforming for a
new world?
Ged Byrne
Our Challenges
• ‘Rapid’ increase in community-delivered care
and reduction in secondary care episodes
• Pan-NW reorganisation of service delivery
• Skills of today are NOT the skills of tomorrow
• Acute shortages in specific areas of service
delivery (e.g. EM and HV)
• Ageing population with increase in chronic
disease burden

The call to ‘transformation’
• We cannot meet the needs of a transforming service
without transforming the workforce
• We cannot transform the workforce unless we transform
BOTH the current workforce and the future workforce
• We cannot transform the current and future workforce without
equipping them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes
required to deliver care in a transforming world
• We cannot deliver care in the transformed world without
transforming the wellbeing of the population

Question 1: How do we know
what we have already got?
 Healthcare providers, whilst increasingly recognising the importance of
education to their own performance and future, lack the knowledge of their
own education and training performance (across all professions) compared
to other providers and lack the skills (and investment) to transform their
educational offer.
 Education and training is often not considered as ‘core business’ for
healthcare providers
 There is often a lack of synergy between the demands of service delivery and
education and as a result the cause of many failures in educational delivery
are as a result non-coordinated service delivery issues

• We MUST get better at measuring
what we can offer
• We must improve as a learning
organisation
• We cannot do this in silos

Question 2: What can we offer to
learners if the current LEs are
substandard?
Current LEs
 Clinical and managerial learning environments remain siloed producing
unacceptable variability in the quality of education
 QA systems for education and training are variable and not fit for purpose
 There are many different groups working to identify and enhance learning
environments but there is little coordination between them.

The Learning Environment
“A suitable learning environment is crucial
to enable your learners to learn effectively.
This involves not only the venue and
resources used but your attitude and the
support you give to your learners.”
(Gravells, 2007, p50)

Characteristics of Productive Learning
Environments
• A focus on learning
– A culture of healthcare learning
• A focus on learners
– workplace as learning communities
– Personal and social development
– Positive workplace climate

Question2 : What can we offer to learners if
the current LEs are substandard?
Alternative LEs

The business and charitable communities deliver high quality education to selected
groups of healthcare workers

The second and third sectors have limited access to patients or professional ‘opinion
leaders’

The quality of highly specific educational opportunities is much greater in the
corporate sector than the NHS can afford

The Department for Business Innovation and Skills recognise the healthcare
workplace as a much underutilised learning environment for future and current
workforce

There is no structure to allow the flow of lifelong learners between the public, second
and third sectors

Question2 : What can we offer to learners if
the current LEs are substandard?
Alternative LEs

The workforce is increasingly required to understand the NHS in the context of Global
Health issues

Placements for learning outside of the UK are variably encouraged across professions
and employers

The benefits of global health placements are poorly understood by professional
leaders and employers

It is likely that an increasing number of health professionals will choose to work for
periods of training and service in other non-UK healthcare systems

Opportunities for leaner ‘exchange’ are highly variable between professions

Question 3 : What about teachers?
 Service pressures and the quantitative metrication of service delivery over
the last decade have devalued the role of teacher/ educator within the
health service
 Few robust quantitative/ qualitative metrics and KPIs exist or are accepted to
rank the performance of educators
 Each professional group has examples of good educator practice and
innovation but there is no forum for exchange of these good practices
between professional groups
 No minimum standards exist for educating within the NHS
 There is no common portfolio of educational activity available for NHS
educators

SO
1. Know what we already have and
improve it
2. Find out what we could have and
access it
3. Reward and recognise those who
deliver it
