Educational Audit of Practice Placements

The University of Nottingham has a responsibility to produce educational programmes and services of a high standard, which meet the needs of students. The educational audit of practice placements, as part of the quality assurance procedures within the University of Nottingham, Division of Nursing and Division of Midwifery, has an important part to play in this process, in collaboration with service providers. Collaborative work with other HEI's is also needed to ensure the needs of all students, in respect of their practice placements, are accommodated.

It is envisaged that the audit information will assist in:

  • Enabling students to have appropriate educational opportunities 
  • Maintaining/improving the students practice placement experience 
  • Giving recognition to the staff working in areas of excellence 
  • Improving the quality of the practice learning environment 
  • Identifying those areas in which staff need help and support to maintain, improve and develop the quality of the learning environment

The educational audit of placements is based on a number of documents relating to placement, such as:
