Please note: You are able to undertake this course if you do not hold registration with the Nursing Midwifery Council.

Ideal for international students, this module prepares clinicians to develop the skills and knowledge to assess the total performance of pre-registration students including skills, attitudes and behaviours. It will also enable clinicians, in an autonomous manner, to organise and co-ordinate student learning activities in practice. The use of relevant work based learning under the supervision of a qualified mentor provides the opportunity for you to critically reflect on the educational experience.

The content of the module has been closely mapped to the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s, Standards to Support Learning and Assessment in Practice (2008), developmental framework for the role of the mentor. As such, teaching and learning activities are centred on the eight mentor competencies specified below:

  • Establishing effective working relationships
  • Facilitation of learning
  • Assessment and accountability
  • Evaluation of learning
  • Creating an environment for learning
  • Context of practice
  • Evidence-based practice
  • Leadership
