Our preceptorships

As a newly qualified healthcare professional, we know that you’re looking for opportunities to develop your skills and gain valuable experience.

Whatever your chosen profession, we can guide you towards your desired career pathway.

Preceptorship is about your development and progress during your first year of clinical practice.

When you join our Preceptorship Programme, you’ll be an active member of our team. You’ll be helping our patients manage their health needs on their journeys through our services.

Our programme also provides excellent development support, including:

  • Relevant training for your role
  • Opportunities to get involved in initiatives with our partner organisations
  • Preceptee Development sessions, to help you gain valuable knowledge and time to reflect along with other healthcare professionals
  • Support from a preceptor from your work base
  • Development workbook, so you can record your progress and share your achievements
  • Regular access to the Clinical Education Team who will guide you through your preceptorship year

You can join our Preceptorship programme if you’re a member of our staff, and you’re a newly qualified nurse, nursing associate, or allied health professional (AHP) in your first year of clinical practice.
