14 Assessment Practice placement assessment is on- going and assesses the midwifery proficiencies, essential skills clusters and professional behaviours in each placement. The mentor awards a grade at the end of each placement

15 Assessment Year 1 - the focus is on normality with basic principles and underpinning knowledge assessed Year 2 - the focus is on complexity with risk assessment, management of care and recognition of deviations from normal Year 3 - the focus is on leading and managing care and the transition to being a registered midwife

16 Role of the Mentor Works with the student for a minimum of 40% of the placement Supports the student in engaging with suitable learning opportunities Guides the development of clinical skills and knowledge Assesses progress and gives feedback Identifies and records any concerns Completes assessment documentation recording student proficiency and awards a grade for practice.

17 Role of the Learning Environment Manager (LEM) Facilitates the development of learning opportunities Assigns students to sign-off mentors Provides support to mentors and students during placement to ensure sufficient exposure to practice is achieved Maintains the live register of mentors Works in partnership with the link lecturer and to undertake quality assurance activities

18 Role of the link lecturer In partnership with the LEM undertakes an annual audit of the placement to ensure placement is a safe and appropriate learning environment Supports and updates mentors as required Conducts tripartite interviews with students and mentors to support grading in practice

19 Assessing clinical practice level 4 By the end of year one, the student should be demonstrating the ability to carry out practised activities with confidence and be expected to plan and lead certain practised activities with few prompts. Some basic care activities may be carried out with close to minimal supervision once the mentor is sure of the student’s ability through direct observation. Also, it is vital that the mentor check the student’s understanding through careful questioning

20 Assessing clinical practice Level 5 As the student gains confidence, she should be able to carry out a wider range of care activities under minimal supervision. However, decisions concerning the degree of supervision should be based on a reasonable amount of prior direct observation of practice. The mentor should also be confident that the student knows when to seek assistance from a midwife

21 Assessing clinical practice Level 6 Increasingly, the student should be able to use her initiative to recognise and meet the needs of clients. Supervision is indirect which means that although the mentor is not observing the student directly, they are still aware of the activities of the student. At this stage, the mentor should use questioning not only to test the student's knowledge and understanding of care activities, but also to ascertain how she would recognise changes in client needs. The mentor should also question the student on how she would plan, prioritise and manage care and the rationale behind her decision- making. By the end of the course, the student should be able to demonstrate all the competencies to the standard of a newly qualified practitioner

22 Essential Skills Clusters These are skills identified by the NMC as essential to midwifery practice and are assessed during the practice placements each year. Initial consultation Communication Medicines management Normal labour and birth Initiation and Continuance of Breast Feeding

23 The practice assessment process Initial interview - to identify objectives and plan learning experiences Progress review - to review progress identify further objectives and plan further learning experiences Final interview - to review progress and determine the assessment outcome additional meetings may be required if concerns about progress arise students should be encouraged to self assess at all interviews

24 Assessment of Practice Document (AOP) Record the initial interview, progress reviews and final interview. Record the achievement of midwifery proficiencies Complete the attendance record Assess the students' professional behaviours Assess Essential Skills Clusters as appropriate for the placement

25 sickness and absence Students are expected to attend for 100% of the placement Students may only make up time during placements with the agreement of the course leader/placement team students need to document all placement hours and mentors need to validate these. Students need to record their hours on the electronic record provided The personal teacher will check that the hours recorded electronically match those recorded in the AOP document Students needing to make up more that 37.5 hours in practice will be placed during the flexi weeks at the end of the year in order to achieve this. This is arranged by the placement team.

26 Grading Criteria Effective demonstration of practice –the student performs correctly, precisely, accurately, decisively, reasonably, skilfully, dexterously Effective demonstration of underpinning knowledge –the student reaches logical conclusions from given information and acts accordingly to make decisions about care management

27 Concerns about student progress Mentors should follow guidance in the AOP document, discuss any concerns with the student, inform the LEM and the Link Lecturer as soon as possible. For urgent assistance please contact the student's Supervisor of Midwives or the Course leader on 07969 610923
