This toolkit is designed for preparing health and social care practitioners for their role in facilitating learning in their workplace. It enables readers to recognise learning opportunities, communicate their professional knowledge, provide students with appropriate support, judge performance, co-ordinate student contact with others in the workplace and develop awareness of the needs of students from diverse backgrounds. With plenty of activities and questions, the reader can assess their knowledge base and apply the concepts in the toolkit to their work setting.

This new edition is fully updated and now includes: international contexualisation; more coverage on meeting the diverse needs of students; and a new section on meeting professional standards, which discusses the NMC standards as well as those of other disciplines. A new companion website makes valuable supplementary material available – including further activities and articles on managing the placement learning experience, developing new supervisors, and making the most of reflection among others.

Practical and easy-to-read, this is an important resource for all those practitioners who support students in the workplace.
