This is a multiprofessional module designed for qualified health and social care professionals to support their development as practitioners whose role requires them to facilitate and assess students or new team members learning in practice settings, including their fitness to practise.

It enables the professional to apply learning and experience to the development of multiprofessional work based learning opportunities for students/junior members of staff and also to utilise their skills in the supervision and mentorship of students from a range of the health and social care settings.
