Educator Study Leave

NES is aware that educators often find that their study leave claims for training related development will not be met by the Health Board and is pleased to confirm that a small percentage of the study leave uplift received from Scottish Government (£50,000 per annum) is available to support study leave requests for educators.  Educators who are either employed or hold an SLA for educational activity with NES will be supported to undertake CPD that is linked to their educator role, rather than their clinical role, to support their professional development and ensure they can train to the required standards set out by the GMC. 

Due to the limited resource available the funding will be based on a first come first served basis.
