They include information to help you support and advise students in the placement setting.
If there is any information that you think would be useful to add, please contact Frances Weeley, Director of Health and Social Care Practice. Email email@example.com.

It is your responsibility as a mentor to inform Anglia Ruskin University of a student's sickness or absence and to ensure this is recorded and signed on the student's timesheet.
The University has a duty to inform the professional body of the exact hours a student has experienced in the clinical area and it is therefore important that accurate records are kept.
Please inform the University of a student's Absence using the email address below:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org, stating: student's name, SID number, Clinical Site, Reason for absence
