Continuing Professional Development (short course, work-based)
Module code: MOD001830
Module level: 6
Our five-day blended learning course will help you to develop the knowledge and skills you will need to support and assess learners in practice. If you're a registered healthcare professional, the course will enable you to meet your professional body requirements for mentorship/practice educator and to enter the local register of mentors.
Our mentorship preparation modules have been designed to develop future mentors who will be able to offer skilled, compassionate and effective support for learners in the workplace, underpinned by the value base of their profession and those enshrined in the NHS Constitution (Department of Health, 2013).
This work-based module is aimed at practitioners who have a comparable mentorship qualification and a requirement to demonstrate the application of this to current professional body mentorship standards. It's designed to encourage you to review your existing knowledge and skills and to consider the current context of practice learning, by supporting and assessing a learner in practice. It gives you the opportunity to meet professional body standards, and then to take on the role of mentor yourself.
Although this module is work-based, you'll come to Anglia Ruskin on the first morning of your module start date.
We use a blended learning approach, so you'll have three taught days and two days of online study.
Mentors play a central role in developing and shaping the future healthcare workforce and we would suggest that you might want to consider this important aspect of the role further, by participating in the activities in this short workshop. This will help with your preparation to undertake our course.

The Faculty of Medical Science, opened in 2014. Based on our riverside campus in Chelmsford and Young Street campus in Cambridge, we deliver innovative and clinically relevant teaching and research across three departments:
Thanks to our close relationships with the major clinical-care providers in the east of England, there are significant opportunities for collaboration and student placements across a variety of clinical sites.
We offer exciting opportunities for research and education in the allied health professions. We also translate science and epidemiology into health education and primary care, and deliver taught Master’s programmes to qualified medics. We have a flourishing community of PhD and MD(Res) students across all of our research fields.
Our advanced learning facilities include state-of-the-art clinical skills laboratories and simulation suites, which mirror real-life clinical situations. We also have a fantastic, modern library and a wide range of science labs and ICT suites.
We'll consider the following qualifications:
You'll need provide a statement from your manager to support your application. Your manager will be verifying that you have the relevant qualifications and are suitable to undertake this module. We'll ask to see a copy of your qualification certificate(s).
All applicants should complete a practice document, which requires the support of a mentor who is currently live on the local register and who is in a position to support you for the duration of the course.
At the time of application, you must complete a supplementary information form outlining details of the supervisor mentor. Applications will not be progressed without this as we need to confirm that you'll have the appropriate support in practice.
Please note that before starting this course, you must have access to a learner. For the purposes of this module, a learner can be anyone who needs to acquire new knowledge and skills (with the exception of service users).
