Raising Concerns

Learners have an important role in raising concerns about the standard of care and any other concerns they have in practice. As a placement educator/mentor you are the student's first line of support in practice and you must give them the confidence and opportunity to speak up. Please sse guidance below for placement educators/mentors.

If you have any concerns or queries please contact your PEF.

Mentor Policy

The Mentorship in Nursing and Midwifery Policy was revised in May 2014.

The main changes surround the annual declaration/ triennial review form.

It is essential all mentors and educators are familiar with the contents of the policy and are aware of their accountability and responsibilites in order to ensure they achieve 100% compliance and are deemed "ACTIVE" on the Mentor Register.

To achieve 100% compliance with the policy, mentors and educators should attend a mentor update annually and complete an annual declaration form ( to comply with the NMC Triennial Review Process).

It is imperative mentors are "ACTIVE" on the Mentor Register and that they are 100% compliant with the policy if they are mentoring a student.

CMFT Core Values and Behaviours

Following the launch of the national Nursing and Midwifery Strategy  - the 6C's in 2012. CMFT has developed a Nursing and Midwifery Strategy setting out the Values and Commitments of Nursing and Midwifery staff across the Trust to provide high quality patient centred care delivered with care and compassion.

The Values and Behaviours outlined in this strategy are integral to patient centred care and should not be isolated to nursing and midwifery staff. It is important that all staff and students across the Trust demonstrate these Values and Behaviours.

Please click on the following link to see the Placement Commitment to the Core Values and Behaviours 

Placement Charter

It is an aim of CMFT that all clinical placement areas clearly display our Placement Charter.

The Charter demonstrates the placement's commitment to providing a safe and high quality learning environment for all health and social care learners to prepare them for future roles working collaboratively in multiprofessional teams.

Interprofessional Learning (IPL) Opportunities

The PEF Team organises a programme of Interprofessional student seminars which are available to all pre-registration students on placement here in the Trust.

For further information on these seminars, additional resources and examples of IPL opportunities for your students please see the Interprofessional Learning (IPL) web page


Placement Evaluation

Placement evaluation is important in ensuring that students from across the disciplines are experiencing high quality learning opportunities. The aim of the evaluation is to measure the student's satisfaction and use as a basis to share good practice and action plan for where improvements are required.

The evaluation form can be accessed via this link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CMFTevaluation

Please can you encourage students to complete the evaluation, ensuring it is completed before they finish the placement? Please inform them that all responses are confidential.
