Evaluation of placements by practice educators and practice supervisors

We are always keen to gain feedback from practice educators and practice supervisors about the practice learning experience. This encompasses our own processes (including our preparation of students) and also our support to you as practice educators and for our students. When the placement is finished and you have written your final report, please visit our online evaluation form which will open in a new browser window. We hope you find this method easier and quicker to complete than previously.

Please complete a form for each student if you are educating or supervising more than one.

Contact Carol Dicken, Senior Lecturer, if you experience any difficulties, email
