What to expect from your learning and assessment
Student learning and assessment should help students to safely meet their programme outcomes and becoming proficient at the point of registration to deliver safe and effective care.
Students should be empowered to take responsibility for their own learning, and have a responsibility to ensure that they prepare for and achieve their learning outcomes and meet our standards
Students should be provided with suitable support and resources to help them meet their learning outcomes and achieve autonomous, reflective and professional practice. Below are some examples of the things students should be provided with to help them meet their learning outcomes.
