Leading and Facilitating Learning in Practice CPD
Continuing professional development (CPD) in health and social care needs to respond to the requirements of flexible delivery of services, the demand for better monitoring of service quality and support for professional practice development within workplace settings. This module is designed to enable students to understand the importance of CPD and to undertake a leadership role in the facilitation and assessment of learning in a workplace setting. It is also required by the NMC as preparation for sign-off Practice Teachers.
Applicants for this module are required to have completed a mentor preparation programme, eg: NM3272 (Supporting and Assessing Learning in Practice) or the equivalent and have successfully completed a degree programme. Applicants undertaking this module who also wish to qualify as a Practice Teacher must hold the required professional qualification, for example a Specialist Community Public Health or Primary Care nursing qualification, and should have gained at least two years additional experience in their speciality. In addition to the theoretical component, students wishing to become SCPHN/PCN Practice Teachers must complete an additional practice-based component and meet NMC requirements as detailed at the end of this page.
The module assumes that those who attend have existing knowledge and experience of mentoring students in practice. It will enable those who attend to lead the development and implementation of learning in interprofessional practice settings. It will also enable those who attend to facilitate learning for individuals and groups, and to apply strategies for monitoring, measuring and evaluating learning in practice.
