Education Network

The Education Network formed to help hospices ‘optimise the potential and contribution of their people to deliver high-quality palliative and end of life care’.

Our Aims

The network was set up to:

  • share the latest thinking in education, staff development and learning with a particular focus on early entry, existing workforce and later career pathways
  • share innovative education and workforce models and how they have been implemented 
  • exchange and share useful resources, tools, ideas and solutions to common challenges
  • provide peer support
  • consider practical measures that can be taken forward now and for the future

Our work

We plan to:

  • Have bi-monthly meetings via Zoom. Three of these will be to discuss current work and challenges, share ideas and solutions. The other three meetings will concentrate on key priorities which have been identified from previous meetings
  • To provide notes, resources and video links to these meetings for members of the network only, allowing those who can't take part to benefit.
  • encourage hospices to share, knowledge, expertise and resources
  • provide useful links to other sites to assist with practice development 
  • offer a closed members forum (Hospice IQ) where Education Network members can discuss topics and share resources between meetings
  • Offer one face-to-face meeting a year to enable members of the group to network


Network meeting are held every two months on the second Tuesday and run from at 10.30 – 12.30pm via zoom.
