Fellowships piloted for graduates

  • Comment
A pilot scheme was launched earlier this month in Scotland to help recently qualified nurses and midwives undertake masters level education while they work.

The Early Clinical Careers Fellowships will provide recent graduates with protected learning time, mentorship and careers development advice while they strengthen their clinical skills.

It is being piloted for by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) as part of the Modernising Nursing Careers project, which aims to overhaul post-registration nurse training and career development across the UK. If successful it will be rolled out across all four countries.

The three to four year course involves successful applicants spending a year completing the Scottish development programme for newly qualifieds, FlyingStart NHS, before studying on a part-time masters level programme in their chosen subject area.

Applications for the next round close on 15 February. Click here for more details.
