Mentorship Preparation - Work-Based Approach

Continuing Professional Development (short course, work-based)

Module code: MOD 003383

Module level: 6


Our work-based learning course will help you to develop the knowledge and skills you will need to support and assess learners in practice. If you're a registered healthcare professional, the course will enable you to meet your professional body requirements for mentorship/practice educator and to enter the local register of mentors.

Full description

Who should attend?

This course is aimed at practitioners who have a comparable mentorship qualification and a requirement to demonstrate the application of this to current professional body mentorship standards.

Is the 'work-based approach' module the right Mentorship module for me?

There are four mentorship modules; some will allow you to gain academic credits as well as recognised mentor/clinical educator status.

The work-based approach is designed to encourage you to review your existing knowledge and skills and to consider the current context of practice learning, by supporting and assessing a learner in practice. You'll be supported in your workplace by a registered healthcare professional (mentor) who is currently live on the local mentor register.

There are three other modules to choose from:

Although this is a work-based course, you'll need to attend Anglia Ruskin on the first morning of your module's start date.
