Practice Assessor Preparation / Educator Preparation - Non-Accredited - MC1000
Ongoing Rolling Online Delivery for Remainder of the Academic Year

There is a NMC requirement for staff who will have responsibility to supervise, support and assess students to undertake training. Across our Region any member of staff who will be undertaking the assessment of Student Nurses or Midwives or Allied Health Professionals in practice will be required to attend a one day training programme to prepare them to undertake this important role.

**Please Note: Once you click the Book Now button you will see a range of options. All of the sessions, despite stating on campus attendance, are only delivered via online delivery - there is no face-to-face delivery of this module.** 

For Nursing and Midwifery Professionals only:

Prior to applying for this online training you must ensure that you have undertaken a short 3 hour Supervisor Preparation Workshop which you can access by contacting your organisations Practice Placement Facilitators.  If your organisation does not offer this provision, please contact james.wade@northumbria.ac.uk and we can consider alternative arrangements to allow you to access the Assessor training.

For all Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professionals:

Please note if you have previously completed your mentorship / educator preparation course you are not required to undertake this new PA course. Please contact your Trusts PPFs for further information.

*We need very specific information from you once you have completed your learning so we can add you onto the University and Trust system as a trained Assessor / Educator. If we do not have this information we will not be able to inform your employer in a timely manner that you have undertaken the training and this may cause delays in you being able to undertake the Practice Assessor role. Incomplete applications will not be processed, and you will be contacted to provide further information.*

This module is provided for free to trusts and clinical areas that provide Northumbria University with clinical placements and so it is essential this information is provided at application to avoid delay. Please contact the email below if your circumstances differ from this. If you are working for an organisation that does not provide placements to Northumbria University students please contact james.wade@northumbria.ac.uk to discuss options for undertaking this course.
