Practice Supervisor and Assessor Updates

The core areas that all SHU supervisor and assessor updates must include and which should be very clearly communicated are:

  • Update with NMC professional standards
  • Understand the students' programme
  • Understand assessment process that occurs in practice
  • Understand process to follow when a student is failing to progress
  • Know how to access placement information websites for key information and SHU contacts
  • Know how to access placement information websites for key information about support available to them in their role in supporting the students
  • Know SHU placement learning policies are housed on the SHU placement learning websites and know processes for escalation of concerns, and
  • The essential need for the placement provider to communicate with the university about any incidents or accidents or concerns.
