Practice Education Support

The Department of Health Sciences Practice Learning Team works with our practice partners to support our students' practice education activity. We allocate students' practice experience, provide advice on practice learning concerns and support both students and practice partners in aspects of mentorship and the practical assessment process.

From September 2019 there are important changes to Student Support in Practice. The Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) are introducing new Standards for Student Support and Assessment (SSSA). Please take the time to visit the Changes to Student Support in Practice web page fo find out how these changes will affect you in practice.  

The Midlands, Yorkshire and East of England Practice Learning Group (MYEPLG) represent 28 Approved Education Institutions (AEIs) across the Midlands, Yorkshire and the East of England. The group aim to lead on collaborative practices in response to the NMC Education Standards (2018).
