Practice-based learning: Professional resources

The documents below will continue to be relevant until September 2020. From September 2020, organisations delivering NMC approved nursing and midwifery courses must use the new Education Standards.

Until this date, some programmes will still be delivered using the previous standards from 2010. This means that mentors, sign-off mentors and link educators will co-exist alongside newly created roles of practice supervisors, practice assessors and academic assessors.

Between now and September 2020, we’ll be updating our publications to reflect the new Standards and roles.
