Q. At present I am part of a team and we would like to educate students in a practice settingĀ - what do I need to do?

A. Discuss this with the team members as it is important there is a whole team approach to mentoring students. You need to contact the university that has the healthcare students studying there. They will be able to advise you about qualifications and courses that will help you become a clinical educator. The university will also be able to advise you about how you can ensure that your placement gives the student the necessary learning opportunities.
