The first group of students to use the online Surrey Practice Learning Platform to have their practice experience assessed, have just completed the first year.

The students were on the Paramedic and Child Nursing courses and have been used to trial the system. It has been a successful experience for the students, their mentors and students with the quality of the student reflections and the feedback from mentors improving. They have mirrored the experience of our other sites where through using an electronic assessment tool, students tend to be more reflective and the feedback their mentors provide to them has a sharper focus.

As a result next year students on the Midwifery and the Operating Department Practitioners courses will also be using the Surrey PLP as well as students on all other Nursing programmes.
