Your mentor will support you in meeting your learning needs; you'll have three interviews with your Practice Assessor whilst on placement.

The first interview will involve you both agreeing on what you need to achieve whilst on the placement using your electronic practice assessment document (MYEpad) and your Ongoing Record of Skills and Achievement Log (ORSAL). Together you will plan alternative areas that are available for you to visit to enhance your learning.

The second interview will be to review your progress and ensure you are on track to meet your agreed objectives and the third interview will be to ensure your learning objectives have been met.

You will also have access to the Practice Development Education Unit within the Trust, which leads a nationally award-winning programme for supporting newly-qualified nurses to make the transition from students to registered nurses. Their role is to ensure you experience the highest quality placements and are there to support and answer any queries you may have about your placements. The Practice Development Education Unit will deliver specific training days throughout your training and you will meet them during your Induction when you come out for your first placement.
