Mentor Preparation

 New Mentor Preparation

The mentorship preparation course is designed to reflect the requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s Standards to support learning and assessment in practice (NMC 2008) and facilitate robust mentor preparation in line with NHS Education for Scotland’s National Approach to Mentor Preparation for Nurses and Midwives Core Curriculum Framework (NES 2013).

The NMC stipulate that mentor preparation courses should:

  • Be a minimum of 10 days, of which at least five days are protected learning time
  • Include learning in both academic and practice learning settings
  • Include relevant work-based learning e.g. experience of mentoring a student under the supervision of a qualified mentor
  • Normally be completed within three months

For NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde staff mentorship preparation courses are provided by Glasgow Caledonian University and University of the West of Scotland in partnership with the PEF/ CHEF Team. For further information please click on the links below:
