Your Professional Responsibility as a Paramedic Educator

Untitled Page

You will already have successfully completed a Trust-approved mentor preparation programme.

In order to keep your mentorship current, it is essential that you:

  • participate in an annual (12 months) Mentor Update
  • support and summatively assess two students within the two-year cycle
  • participate in a biennial standards review.

To be assured of the quality of the future healthcare workforce, it is also essential that:

  • students are supervised by mentors who are positive role models
  • students are supervised and assessed by mentors who support care that embraces the underpinning principles and values of the NHS Constitution and the 6Cs
  • mentors encourage and inspire students to make a difference to patient care.
