7 Organisation of the Module 3 days face to face 2 days protected time with work based activities 5 days unprotected time with work based activities Accredited or non-accredited routes Accredited route = 11 credits – level 9

8 Portfolio of evidence Documentation required; oLearning contract / Action Plan oRecord of Interim and Final Reviews oMinimum of 23 Record of Completion of Module component Forms oLog of Practice Hours- containing a minimum of 37 and a half hours on specific practice mentor activity oMapping of Portfolio of Evidence against Domains/ Outcomes oVerification of Achievement of Mentor Outcomes

9 The Accredited Version of the Module Also requires oFrom the 23 “ Record of Completion “ forms, 2 specific components will be chosen for expansion with 1250 word essays. The 2 components will vary for each module oAn assignment cover sheet should completed for submission with the expanded portfolio

10 Mapping to Standard This Mentorship Module maps to: - NMC Mentor Outcomes - NES Framework Learning outcomes - NES Framework Unit Learning Outcomes - Knowledge and Skills Framework Core Dimensions

11 Achieving the Appropriate Academic level Mentor module is developed at Academic Level 9 Explain SCQF levels Define and give examples of learning at level 9

12 Critical thinking: - A model to achieve level 9 “ Critical thinking ability is commonly cited as a desirable educational outcome, particularly in relation to professional and higher education” (Frederickson & Meyer 1977, et al).

14 Critical Thinking Academic Level 9 Taking the quotes on the handout and consider how you as a mentor can achieve this level and also support a learner to achieve the levels they require. oEvidence based practice- sharing and searching oDiscussion/reflection oSimulation

15 Record of Completion Form 1 Discussion of content covered, how this links to literature used. Guide to compiling Record of Completion (1) Guide for how to map to the NMC standard as evidence for portfolio at level 9

16 Record of Completion of Module Component Record Number:R1 Module Component: D1.1, Date: 14/9/08 Type of Evidence: Reflective Account Description: (Any supplementary material?) Overview of information on course content and structure. Review of learning levels required for pre-reg. nursing students and for completion of mentor prep. module Analysis: Use of reflective model to develop an account of critical thinking. Insert reflective account (stating model used) with reference to quotes utilised

17 Record of Completion of Module Component List the Outcomes being claimed and briefly state for each how this evidence relates to the claim: 1.1-expectation explored and ground rules developed in small groups of student mentors therefore developing working relationships for the rest of the programme 3.1- Overview of the aims/goals of the module and increased ability to analyse achievement of learners and self 5.4- Programme content and literature informs accountability/responsibility in delivering the mentoring role Any other evidence which this links to?
