Webinar: The NMC’s Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment

The NMC’s Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment (SSSA) set out the roles and responsibilities of practice supervisors and assessors. They make sure students receive high-quality learning, support and supervision during their practice placements.

They set out the NMC’s expectations for the learning, support and supervision of students in the practice environment, and how students are assessed for theory and practice learning.

The NMC is holding a webinar on Tuesday 16 November from 17:00-18:00 for students, supervisors and assessors and anyone with an interest in SSSA to hear about the interprofessional learning experiences of using these standards.

This webinar will:

·      Help you to consider how the SSSA supports students in their learning;

·      give you the chance to hear from a student, a practice supervisor, practice assessor and academic assessor about their experience of these roles; and

·      give you the chance to ask the NMC and the panel questions about the SSSA.
