Preceptorship Programme

At Frimley Health, we are committed to providing a supportive and comprehensive preceptorship programme.

Our aim is to develop your clinical knowledge and skills and for you to become a confident, safe and competent practitioner. Our preceptorship programme has been specifically designed to meet the developmental needs of newly registered practitioners.

The structured programme consists of a series of study days, after which preceptees practice the skills they have learnt in their clinical area.

The study days, delivered by the clinical education team, practice development nurses and clinical experts are spread over the course of the year. Preceptees are then supported in achieving the clinical competencies.

A variety of interactive learning methods is used including discussion, group work, reflection, clinical scenarios, workshops, peer learning, e-learning and simulation.

You will be supported by a preceptor in clinical practice, senior staff including your ward manager, the practice development nurses and the clinical education team.

The practice development team will oversee your development in your first year and will offer clinical support, guidance and advice. You will be nurtured and encouraged to grow both professionally and personally within this first year of your nursing career.

And we listen to our preceptees. Their feedback guides the development of the programme to ensure we meet their needs and provide the best possible learning opportunities.
