About the Supporting AHP Students programme

Practice placement education (PPE) is a key component of health and care training and so it is essential that PPE provides a supportive and safe learning environment for all students. In addition to clinical educators, non-registered AHP staff can play a significant role in students’ education, teaching them clinical aspects of the role and also for pastoral support.

The aim of this course is to provide non-registered AHP assistants and support staff with training to develop their understanding of student education and to develop their skills in supporting students and educators within their teams. During this course, users will learn about the student journey, from the beginning of their studies to qualification and how practice placements form part of their learning. The resource will also offer an understanding of what is expected from students during placement, how to give feedback to students and educators and how to recognise and support a student who may be struggling. By developing these skills, non-registered staff will be able to contribute to the delivery of practice placement education, improving the quality and capacity of placements.
