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

The first interview will involve you both agreeing what you need to achieve whilst on the placement using your electronic practice assessment document (EPAD) 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 leaning.

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 Learning Facilitators (PLFs) within the Trust. 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 PLF team will deliver specific training days throughout your training and you will meet them during your Induction when you come out for your first placement. You can contact the PLFs via email.

Assessment methods used include essays, case studies, reports, workbooks, communications exercise, written and clinical examinations and portfolios. Practice experience is continuously assessed with a mid-placement formal formative assessment and a formal summative assessment.
