iHV Practice Education Networking Events

  • Are you involved in educating health visitor students within their SCPHN programme?
  • Are you a practice assessor/ teacher or practice supervisor?
  • Are you a SCPHN Lecturer or programme lead?
  • If so, Welcome to this space!

These member networking events are an opportunity to share good practice and learn together to shape leadership in practice education. We very much see this as a two-way process and the Networking Events also provide an opportunity for us to update you on our workstreams and the national direction. We look forward to working closely with you so that, collectively, we “get it right” for families and the health visiting workforce.

iHV Student Networking Events

These networking events for our student members are an opportunity to network with fellow students from around the country, and share learning and experiences. Having a better understanding of the SCPHN student experience will also help us in our work with education and government, enabling us to provide an accurate and up-to-date picture of any matters that require their attention, as well as a vehicle for sharing best practice examples and solutions.

iHV Corporate Service Leads Networking Events

As we look to the future, with health visiting facing so many changes alongside so many challenges to improving outcomes for children in the earliest years, there is a lot at stake and it’s imperative that we “get it right” for families and the health visiting workforce.

At the iHV we want to ensure that we remain relevant and responsive to current issues to help us in our function as an “independent voice” for health visiting.

To help us work more closely with you, we have launched our “Corporate Service Leads Networking Events”.  These events are by invite only for our valued iHV corporate service leads, and they aim to shape our work to ensure we provide the direction and services that you need to lead your work during these times.

This is an opportunity for you to share current issues, innovations and service priorities with colleagues from around the country. Having a better understanding of current issues will also help us in our work with the Government, enabling us to provide an accurate and up-to-date picture of any urgent matters that require their attention, as well as a vehicle for sharing best practice examples and solutions. We very much see this as a two-way process and these Networking Events also provide an opportunity for us to update you on our workstreams and the national direction.
