About the event
Please only book one session at a time, as this allows us to reach as many individuals (and partaking organisations) as possible. Apologies for the duplication of the October session (here on Eventbrite) this issue has been noted and is being resolved. It is still taking place. The workshop consists of three elements and staff can choose which element/s they need to attend:
9.00-11.00 - Overview of NMC Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment (SSSA) and the roles and responsibilities of Practice Assessors and Practice Supervisors
This is the first part of the full day workshop for new Practice Assessors. This element can also be used as an update for existing Practice Assessors and Supervisors.
See link in the event page for mandatory prerequisite e-Learning; this will supplement all elements as per PAN London requirements.
11.30-13.00 - ePAD Training (electronic Practice Assessment Document)
All BSc and MSc Nursing students use the electronic Practice Assessment Document (ePAD). This offers the chance to familiarise yourself with the system and assessments within it during this session.
13.30-17.00 - New Practice Assessor Training
This session will continue on from the morning workshops and will provide an opportunity for Registered Nurses with no previous mentorship/assessor qualification to become certified Practice Assessors. It is required that you will have worked as a Practice Supervisor already before undertaking the Practice Assessor role. It is vital that you check your eligibility to be a Practice Assessor with your employer/lead educator and ensure they support your attendance/training.
The entire days' attendance is required (even if it's not all completed at once) to earn the certification; and relevant e-Learning detailed in the event page must be completed before any of the session starts.
After the session the University will issue a certificate that covers the face-to-face component of the Practice Assessor training only.
You must then present your evidence of e-Learning along with this face-to-face certificate to your education lead in order to be supported in the new role. Your lead/educator will need to keep a record of this.
Please register (for this session) using your organisation/professional email address. Bookings made from personal email addresses or from staff not supporting Kingston University students will be cancelled (if in doubt, please speak to your education lead, as above, to see whether you are eligible).
The sessions will be delivered online via Microsoft Teams, invitations being sent once your booking is confirmed.
The workshop is free, but late cancellations or non-attendance may incur a fee and your organisation will be informed.
