Barts Health AHP Preceptorship Programme

On starting work, newly registered AHPs (Allied Health Professions), from all professional backgrounds can often feel overwhelmed with the reality of clinical practice. There is much evidence nationally and internationally, that newly qualified health care professionals do not always feel supported in their transition period from student to registered practitioner.

This programme aims to address these issues by providing a structured framework of support and education, tailored specifically for AHPs.

The educational components of the programme will support the development of a flexible, competent and confident practitioner, that excels in delivering high quality compassionate care. The programme will be co-ordinated centrally through the Education Academy. The programme is constructed of 9 monthly Core Preceptorship skills and values workshops. Those that attend the programme will also be supported by a Preceptor in their workplace (through 1 to 1 meetings) and by the Preceptorship team throughout the 9 month programme.

Barts Health Preceptor Development Workshop

The aim of the Preceptor Development Workshop is for delegates to understand their role and responsibilities as a preceptor and develop confidence in carrying out their role. 

The preceptor role is key to preceptorship. The Preceptor is a guide, colleague, and a valuable and professional resource of help for the preceptee as they progress through their Preceptorship. 

Preceptorship is an important part of Post Registration Practice. Preceptorship should be provided under the guidance of a preceptor.

Preceptorship is a period of structured transition for the newly qualified practitioner (NQP). NQPs become accountable as soon as they are registered, and this transition from student to accountable practitioner is known to be challenging. The purpose of preceptorship is to provide support during this transition. Where, under the role of Preceptee, the NQP will be supported by a Preceptor to develop their confidence as an autonomous professional; refine skills, values and behaviours and to continue on their journey of life-long learning.
