Abstract

Health Education England’s (HEE) Widening Participation programme promotes equality and diversity in relation to the development of the current and future healthcare workforce. This is with the intention of ensuring an approach where the NHS workforce is more representative of the communities it seeks to serve and where development and progression is based upon a person’s merit, ability and motivation and not their social background or the privilege, extent and effectiveness of their social networks. To support these aims, HEE has commissioned desk research from the Institute of Vocational Learning and Workforce Research (IVLWR) at Buckinghamshire New University. IVLWR was asked to review the entry requirements used by education institutions that provide NHS funded nursing programmes in England. The work will shed light on the time and effort involved in application processes and highlight inconsistencies between institutions. The focus is on non-A-level entry and covers: information from higher education institute (HEI) websites web-based information from other sources number of non-A-level applicants, starters and completers as a proportion of total applicants for programmes in 2010 to 2014. The results of the research will be used to assess the implications of how HEI’s engage with applicants and how this impacts on widening participation. If the study is effective, it may be replicated to look at the public facing admission information and criteria for other NHS funded programmes.
