Mentor update and training
Transitional workshops incorporating a mentor update from August 2019
All transitional workshops have been suspended for this academic year.
From August 2019 the way student nurses, midwives and trainee nursing associates are supported and assessed in practice is currently going through a transition period to meet the new NMC Standards for student supervision and assessment (NMC, 2018). Mentor updates will become a transitional workshop from August 2019 to meet these new standards and also incorporate the existing standards. To book a mentor update/Transitional workshop, please fill out this registration form. We will normally send a confirmation of your booking within five working days.
This self-declaration is to help you demonstrate an ability to meet NMC (2018) Standards for student supervision and assessment and/or the Standards for Education and Training (HCPC, 2017).
