Supervisor and assessor updates

Your organisation will be able to tell you about updating opportunities available to you.

You'll find details of practice supervisor and assessor courses here.

This is the latest version of our educator update for staff:

Operating department practice educator update

Changes to standards

The educator update has more information on changes to the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) standards for practice learning, and how this affects the support and assessment of student nurses by operating department practitioners (ODPs).

Further information around these changes will be cascaded to you by the organisation that you work for. You can also find details on the Nursing & Midwifery Council website and the Health & Care Professions Council website.
