CIEL Near-peer Facilitator Training

Undergraduate students in year three and above can train to become a near-peer interprofessional facilitator. This involves a formal three-hour training session, and one to one coaching by an experienced member of staff while co-facilitating an interprofessional workshop is offered. Certificates are provided to those who complete the training session.

The activities for co-facilitation are:

  • year one Multidisciplinary Team Healthcare Service workshops (held on Wednesdays and Fridays in March)
  • year two Multidisciplinary Team Patient Care Plan Poster workshops (held on Wednesdays and Fridays in February)

Once you have successfully completed the training you can choose to co-facilitate either or both of the events. You are also then eligible to facilitate activities with the CIEL Student Committee.



Nottingham Advantage Awards

Explore the year-long Nottingham Advantage Award modules we offer through CIEL:

Interprofessional Masterclasses

This module aims to develop the participant’s knowledge and understanding of the broad range of topics and areas covered in the Interprofessional Masterclass Series. Time is spent delving into smaller areas of personal interest and exploring those areas even further through discussions with colleagues.  

Much of the module is self-directed to enable the participant a great deal of autonomy around what they would like to learn and at what pace they would like to learn it. The discussions are present to encourage deeper learning and understanding, especially from the point of view of those studying in other professions.



Interprofessional Development: Multidisciplinary Teamwork in Health and Social Care

This module aims to develop a participant’s knowledge and skills in interprofessional teamwork to better prepare them for professional practice in health or social care. Participants will learn how to have an effective interprofessional team and leadership of those teams. Participants will also gain a deeper understanding of values-based practice and its relevance in an interprofessional team.

The activities have been created so that participants can utilise the skills they acquire throughout the module within their individual groups. By the end of the module, participants will have improved their ability to communicate their opinions confidently and professionally with colleagues and will have gained insight into their individual professional development through reflective writing.
