NHS Education for Scotland

A skilled and sustainable workforce for a healthier Scotland

National trauma training programme

In 2016 NHS Education for Scotland was asked by the Scottish Government to develop a set of resources to promote and implement trauma informed practice within Scotland. This was due to the growing recognition of the impact of traumatic experiences on people.


Our overarching vision is to develop a trauma informed and responsive nation and workforce, that:

  • is informed by people with lived experience
  • recognises the importance of wellbeing in the workforce
  • recognises where people are affected by trauma and adversity
  • responds in ways that prevent further harm
  • supports recovery
  • and can address inequalities and improve life chances
