Mentor updates

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​All mentors, Sign off mentors and Practice Teachers who work in NHS and private organisations in Gloucestershire and who supervise and assess nursing students in practice are welcome to attend the ‘Mentor Update workshops’ provided by the University of Gloucestershire.

Participation in annual updating – to include an opportunity to meet and explore assessment and supervision issues with other mentors/Practice Teachers - is currently a requirement of The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as detailed in the Standards to Support Learning and Assessment in Practice (NMC, 2008).

The purpose of annual updating is to ensure you:

  • have current knowledge of NMC approved programmes
  • are able to discuss the implications of changes to NMC requirements
  • ​have an opportunity to discuss issues related to mentoring, assessment of competence and fitness for safe and effective practice.

You can use the form below​ to book a place on our Mentor Updates Workshop.
