Te Pou believes high quality mental health and addiction training is key to developing a strong and effective workforce.

We regularly monitor and evaluate our Skills Matter programmes to understand what differences the programmes make in practice and to look for opportunities to continuously improve our programme offerings.

At the bottom of this page you will find information and results from various evaluation activities undertaken by Te Pou including:

  • end of year student survey results
  • an analysis of the new entry to specialist practice: mental health and addiction nursing programme
  • Skills Matter impact and outcomes infographic - a snapshot of demographic information teamed with student comments about the programmes 
  • stories from students and employers sharing their experiences.

If you would like to share your experience of being a student - or employer of a Skills Matter student - we would love to hear from you. Please contact Angela Gruar.
