Preceptorship programme

preceptorshipThis trustwide programme has been designed to support the transition from being a  student to now a qualified practitioner. We recognise that this transition can be exciting but also a challenging time for you. The programme commenced in october 2015 with the aim of helping develop Newly qualified practitioners  into  confident and competent practitioners, enabling them  to be the best at what they do. In 2015, Health Education England, formally identified the importance of such a structured Preceptor Framework for all newly qualified practitioners, setting clear standards and outcomes to be achieved by all organisations.

There are currently 6 sessions to attend in a 6 month period, with a further session at 9 months, in which we believe supports the 12 month preceptorship framework. All NQP's are expected to attend all 7 sessions and complete their 12 month preceptorship framework in order to be awarded a Hospital badge.  The sessions will cover 'current topic's' within the NHS / organisation. These sessions will be part taught, with the main emphasis focusing on group interaction to help you apply knowledge to your practices and to share your experiences.

Below you will see the core themes that we feel are 'current' to your role and will link to the evidence that is required to achieve the knowledge and Skills framework (KSF). You may also find the following link helpful:
