The NMC Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment (2018) require that registrants who facilitate learning and assess students must be prepared for these roles.
In collaboration with our placement provider partners and the University of Essex, we have developed online workshops to prepare you to become a Practice Supervisor and, if requested to do so by your employer, a Practice Assessor.
A Practice Supervisor is a registered healthcare professional who supports and supervises students, providing feedback on their progress towards, and achievement of, proficiencies and skills (NMC, 2018).
A Practice Assessor is an NMC registrant who conducts assessments to confirm student achievement of proficiencies and programme outcomes for practice learning (NMC, 2018).

Please be advised that we will not be able to offer technical support/advice for employees of organisations outside the ARU placement circuit.
