About us

The NHS Scotland Academy is an exciting partnership between NHS Golden Jubilee and NHS Education for Scotland to offer accelerated training for a wide range of health and social care roles and professions.

The Academy will:

  • provide an opportunity for staff to improve their skills in specific areas, using residential, distance and virtual reality learning.
  • offer attractive training programmes linked to recruitment and career progression.
  • draw on the strengths of both parent organisations using both the state-of-the-art clinical and simulation facilities at NHS Golden Jubilee and the educational expertise and technology-enabled learning offered by NHS Education for Scotland.
  • support NHS Scotland to develop additional capacity and new capabilities. 
  • add to existing educational programmes and respond to evolving and emerging workforce needs. 
  • help ensure the health and social care workforce is prepared for future needs in Scotland by addressing recruitment gaps and training needs
  • commit to the principles of eliminating discrimination and harassment, promoting equality of opportunity for all and recognising and valuing diversity in employment and in the delivery of our services. Our Inclusive Education and Learning Policy [PDF] sets out our commitment to making education and learning more inclusive.
