The practice education support team provides advice on practice experience from both an administrative and academic perspective. At the moment we consist of six members of staff with a remit to co-ordinate the many aspects of practice support within the Department.
The team work closely with the educational leads for practice based in trusts and large organisations across Yorkshire and the Humber. The educational leads for practice are responsible for supporting the mentor or practice supervisor in practice. They ensure the adequate provision of quality assured placements for the full range of students undertaking educational training within the healthcare community.
The Practice Learning Link Lecturer Team in the Department of Health Sciences offer support to nursing students out in practice placement areas.
