Practice Hub

For clinical staff who support, supervise and assess our students

Welcome to the Anglia Ruskin University practice hub

We hope you find it useful in providing additional avenues of guidance and information to support you in clinical practice.
Please scroll through the pages for the specific course for students you are supporting or access the online supervisor and assessor course to prepare for a role in supervision or assessment of students.

Supervisors and assessors of students

New NMC Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment (SSSA) (2018) will be implemented in practice from September 2019.

Anglia Ruskin University has been working with practice partners and other AEIs across the Midlands, Yorkshire and East of England. Together, we've formed a Practice Learning Group called Midlands, Yorkshire and East Practice Learning Group (MYEPLG), developing resources to support clinical staff.

Explore our NMC Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment resources.

Read the information and guidance related to the implementation of the Enhanced Practice Support Framework in your practice area.
