About the Multi-Professional Preceptor e-Compendium programme

Moving into the role of a registered health and care professional is recognised to be a challenging time for staff, and support both professionally and personally during this period is essential. To support this, staff are able to engage in high-quality preceptorship programmes that are tailored to their professional and individual needs, and during this time they will be allocated a preceptor to provide tailored 1:1 support.

The aim of the Preceptor eCompendium is to recognise the needs of the preceptor, too, and to provide them with the guidance, support, resources and practical tools that they need for this role. It aims to help them reflect on their own experiences of this transition into the workforce, and to optimise their knowledge and skills to best position themselves to support others. It also supports the preceptor to develop valuable skills that will help them in other supporting roles that they will find themselves taking on during their current or future roles.

This programme is made up of 5 learning sessions, consisting of:

Session 1: The Preceptor Role
Session 2: Leading and coaching Preceptees
Session 3: Identifying/agreeing the Preceptee’s learning/support needs
Session 4: The health and well-being of the Preceptor and Preceptee
Session 5: Reflecting on your experience as a Preceptor

***Due to the ongoing development of the Learning Hub the programme certificate is currently unavailable until the end of September. In the meantime, users can use the “My Learning” option to see which sessions they have completed*** 

On successful completion of all the five sessions, the final online assessment will evidence that you have met the learning outcomes and provide a certificate to confirm you have successfully completed all of the learning sessions in the eCompendium.

If you are an experienced Preceptor, you can use the programme as a refresher or for support if there was a particular challenge or situation you need some extra guidance on. You can access each session without completing the knowledge checks; however, this will not lead to certification.

The eCompendium has been developed so that it complements existing national work which will be signposted throughout the units. Please note that we are expecting the publication of national Allied Health Professional and Midwifery Preceptorship frameworks. When these frameworks are available, they will be integrated into this learning resource.

More information

This e-Compendium of resources will enable learners to reflect on their own current learning and development needs and will identify potential areas to focus on as part of their own personal development. Additional resources will be introduced and linked to as part of this training that learners might like to consider taking on as part of their wider personal development plan on their completion of this programme.
