CMFT recognise that the transition from student to accountable practitioner can be a daunting, as well as exciting, time. The preceptorship team are available to answer any queries about the programme and can help guide and support preceptee's through their first year in practice.

New to CMFT are preceptorship facilitators. With years of experience in the clinical environment, they are a point of contact and support for new registrants to the trust. As well as being visible around the trust visiting clinical areas, the preceptorship facilitators can be contacted to provide one on one support and guidance as needed. Regular drop in sessions are also held by the preceptorship facilitators, giving preceptee's the opportunity to discuss their progress away from the clinical environment.

Each clinical area also has a preceptorship champion, please click link below. This list is currently in the process of being updated, please email preceptorship@cmft.nhs.uk if you experience any contact issues.

14082204_001_Williams Caroline Williams - Preceptorship Lead

RGN, RSCN, BsC Nursing Studies, PG Diploma and MSc in Practice Development.

I began my career at CMFT in 1986 as a newly qualified Registered General Nurse working on the Neonatal Surgical Unit, St Mary's Hospital. My career started as a junior staff nurse and I progressed through each band up to band 7 Sister.

Education and staff support has remained important throughout my career both as an Education and Development Practitioner and currently as a Practice Education Facilitator and Preceptorship lead.

I have seen many changes during my career but a constant has been my commitment to life-long learning and have continually updated myself educationally. I am currently studying for an MSc Practice Development providing me with research based knowledge to continually make improvements within my role and support others in providing quality, safe patient care.

BSC (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography.  PGCertificate/PGDiploma in Clinical Teaching & Learning in Clinical Practice.

I started my career as a diagnostic radiographer in 2009 at Stepping Hill Hospital where I had conducted my training.

I always wanted to work in paediatrics and had a great passion for mentoring and teaching.  In 2010 I started at RMCH to specialise as a paediatric radiographer, progressing to a band 6 senior. Whilst working at RMCH I have been very fortunate to develop my passion for education and teaching and became a PBE, Preceptor and the Student Liaison officer for all the students who attended the department, developing both a student and induction pack.

I have just graduated with a PGC in Clinical Teaching and Learning and I am about to embark on the Diploma.    I have just started a 12 month secondment as a facilitator with the preceptorship team and I feel this will enable me to develop my role in education and provide me with the tools to teach, support and develop others. Delivering the preceptorship programme and working with the team I feel extremely excited about and I am sure will be very rewarding.

BSC (Hons) Occupational Therapy.

Since 2007 I have been employed at Trafford General Hospital (TGH) as an occupational therapist working in physical and mental health settings. I have recently joined the team on a 12 month secondment as a Preceptorship Facilitator.

I have always had an interest in continuous professional development for myself and others. I have been an educator for occupational therapy students for 7 years and supervisor/preceptor for newly qualified band 5 staff and support workers. Before TUPE to CMFT I was a Sage and Thyme facilitator for Trafford Provider Services.

I am excited about my new role and look forward to supporting the newly qualified preceptees and their preceptors throughout their first year of employment at CMFT.
