This layer incorporates quality improvement programmes currently offered by NES at lead and practitioner level. It will build on knowledge and skills in the application of the science of improvement that will, in turn, complement this specific area of specialisation.

It will include:

  • how to develop, test, and implement changes including identifying high-leverage change ideas and testing them
  • how to use data for improvement and other key quality improvement tools.


The improvement layer will be available from Summer 2018.
