The module aims to provide registered healthcare professionals with the opportunity to examine theories which underpin approaches to learning, facilitation, assessment and support in practice-based settings. This will enable them to apply their skills and effectively fulfil their role as a mentor/practice educator, practice supervisor or practice assessor in professional practice taking into account their responsibility and accountability for teaching and learning.
On this course you will...
- Explore and review, with an evidence base, management, organisational issues, working relationships and inter-professional team working, of everyone involved in effective mentoring placements, which recognises the diversity of all individuals.
