Education liaison recruitment

The Education Liaison Service consists of four fields of registered nurses and a midwife, with a variety of specialist backgrounds and professional qualifications.

As a service we are influencing, enhancing and developing the quality of clinical placement learning opportunities, for pre-registration student nurses and midwives and those who are returning to practice.  We are also supporting mentors and students in practice and deliver mentorship training, annual updates, triennial reviews and also deliver ‘sign off’ mentor training. As required by the NMC we are responsible for maintaining the local mentor register/database. We support professional consolidation for newly registered nurses and midwives through the Preceptorship Programme, providing guidance on all matters related to pre-registration nursing, and midwifery education to health board staff. We work collaboratively with the Colleges of Human and Health Science in order to ensure that pre-registration students and newly registered nurses and midwives are supported through high standards of mentoring and preceptorship.

Our service supports students and teams across all acute and community specialities including:

  • Adult General areas (both in acute and community hospitals)
  • Mental Health
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Paediatrics
  • Community – District nursing, Specialist Community Public Health Nursing, the private and independent sector
