Accreditation for Prior (Experiential) Learning (AP(E)L for Mentor Preparation Programmes
The Nursing and
Midwifery Council (NMC) Standards for Learning and Assessment in Practice
require that all mentors who will be supervising and assessing students
meet NMC standards.
The new NMC
framework has been developed to ensure that students
undertaking programmes are supported, supervised and assessed by practitioners with the necessary
knowledge and competence.
whose names have not been entered on the local register of mentors can seek
accreditation for previous learning and/or experience that would demonstrate
they meet the mentor standards. Each of the 5 HSC Trusts have provided guidance
on this process.
