Trainee Nursing Associate pilot student data collection
Health Education England’s (HEE) Student Data Collection Tool is a nationally consistent collection of data covering students on health programmes in England, intended to inform healthcare workforce planning activities and facilitate the payment of Department of Health and Social Care Education & Training Placement Tariff to placement providers.
The Student Data Collection Tool now has an additional template to capture data for Trainee Nursing Associates (TNA). This became active for collection in July 2020, as part of a pilot collection.
The collection of this data will directly inform HEE TNA payments to employers and to report to the Department of Health and Social Care on TNA programme numbers.
Since its launch, several changes have been made to the TNA Collection, to reflect feedback received from stakeholders, and in particular the feedback received from education and placement providers.Improvements for the next collection include:
- Updated organisational lists, including Private, Independent and Voluntary Organisations (PIVO).
- An updated, more detailed, and more accurate list of course titles.
- The collection period now visible on the portal e.g., 1st November to 14th February 2021
- ‘Simulated‘ has been added to the list of LOV in the Placement Type column on the Placement Activity sheet. Please select this option to indicate where simulated/ remote placement activity has taken place.
