Trainer Information

Trainee and Trainer Surveys

NES access a number of surveys to support decision making regarding the quality of postgraduate medical education and training in Scotland. Information about the surveys is below as well as links to each survey for the current year. 

For the purpose of making the data more understandable, RAG (Red - And -Green) reports have been developed. The scales used to determine the ratings vary, guidance is provided within each report. On a general basis green indicates an above average score, while red indicates a below average score.

 

GMC National Training Survey

Since 2006 the GMC has undertaken a national survey of trainee doctors covering the four UK nations. The surveys are important components of the quality management process as they produce quantitative data that can be directly linked to the GMC national standards. Since 2011, the GMC have been working to improve all aspects of the National Training Survey (NTS). NES has been part of this process and lead a review in 2012, National Training Survey 2012: Findings of the NTS data analysis and question development. You can access the NTS results on the GMC website.

 

Scottish Trainee Survey 

The Scottish Training Survey (STS) was conceived of in 2013 as a replacement to the Post Assessment Questionnaire. The driving aim was to have a survey that produces robust indicators for quality management. A further aim of the STS was to capture data about each post, rather than just once a year. A report has been produced, analysing the 2017-2018 Medical Scottish Trainee Survey (STS) Freetext Comments (FTC)

 

Undergraduate survey

The Medical Schools and NES developed the joint Undergraduate survey reports in 2009 and since 2010 have published the results.  The reports and threshold levels were modified in 2011 but since then the method has remained fixed.  The Medical Schools’ student survey contains 14 questions that are converted into indicators for the reports.  St Andrews uses a different question containing 10 questions which are mapped to selected indicators. The responses are on a five point ordinal scale except for Glasgow where a four point scale is used.
