About the Higher Specialist Scientist Training Induction 2021

We are very pleased to announce that we have recruited a high calibre of trainees onto the HSST programme this year. 


The HSST Induction 2021 consists of two online webinars with online resources, all of which will provide new trainees with an introduction to the programme and key information that will support them during their training. The webinars and resources are a core, necessary part of the programme which all trainees must attend.  The resources will be made available before each webinar giving trainees time to read through the information.

Webinar dates

  • An introduction to the HSST (webinar 1) – Wednesday 6th October 2021 at 1:30pm
  • A trainee’s perspective (webinar 2) – Wednesday 13th October 2021 at 2:00pm.

The Manchester Academy of Healthcare Scientist Education (MAHSE) will be holding their own induction event and trainees will be advised of this date separately.

Workplace supervisors

Workplace supervisors may also attend the HSST Induction 2021, especially if they are new to the role of workplace supervisor and will be taking responsibility for a HSST trainee this year. If a supervisor wishes to attend the induction they must email us at nshcs.assessment@hee.nhs.uk by 29th September 2021. However, if the supervisor has already attended the HSST Train the Trainer event this year, there is no need for them to also attend the induction.

If you have any questions about the HSST Induction 2021, please email nshcs.assessment@hee.nhs.uk
