Practice Educator - Clinical Education Team

Job Description

The Clinical Education Team are responsible for supporting the clinical areas to provide excellent learning environments for pre-registration students at GSTFT.

We train student nurses from London South Bank University (LSBU) and Kings College London (KCL) on a Bachelor of Science three-year (BSc) degree or Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) two year programme.

All our student nurses rotate through different disciplines gaining a wide variety of learning opportunities in both acute and community settings.

Our students are supervised and mentored by ward staff and supported by the clinical education team. They spend 50% of their training at university and 50% of the time in clinical placements.

During their time at GSTFT, our students are exposed to a variety of learning opportunities from medical, surgical, outpatients and out-of-hospital care. We encourage our student nurses to use evidence-based practice and research and link these to clinical application.

Our students receive weekly teaching sessions delivered by our expert clinicians. We also believe in the ethos of listening to our students; this means they have the opportunity to feedback on practice and help to develop improvements within our services.

Our high standard of training has meant we have recruited all of our students that wanted employment at GSTFT.

This post is part of the clinical education team within Education Training and Development (ET&D).
