AHP Practice Educator Training
AHP practice educator training is provided by all five of the Scottish higher education institutions (HEIs) who provide pre registration AHP courses: Glasgow Caledonian University and Strathclyde (jointly), Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh Napier university and Robert Gordon University. The NHS GGC Practice Placement Quality Group have agreed that AHPs should refresh their practice educator training every five years.
If an AHP attends a course from one of the HEI's, this provides them with the information and knowledge to supervise students from all HEI's i.e. an AHP does not need to attend all four HEI's practice educator training courses to supervise students from the other HEIs. However AHPs need to ensure they are familiar with the paperwork and requirements for each course.
The universities have collaborated to create shared online Practice educator training modules -approaches to learning programme- which is available on Turas, the NHS Education for Scotland digital platform.
All new and experienced practice educators from any sector in Scotland can access these modules you will need to register/ be registered with TURAS to access.
