PAN North West Student Supervision & Assessment Resources


The Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) has reviewed and updated the standards of proficiency for nurses and the standards for education and training. These reflect the changing needs for the role nurses will play in future healthcare services.

Midwifery standards are also being developed, will be consulted on and implemented in 2020. The new standards have a greater emphasis on leadership, multi-disciplinary working and working across different settings.

All programmes offered by all Approved Education Institutions (AEIs) must be aligned to the new standards by September 2020. AEIs in the North West plan to adopt these new standards from September 2019.

Part 2 of the standards relate to student supervision and assessment and are more outcome focused. They separate out supervision and assessment, and students are assigned to a practice supervisor, practice assessor and an academic assessor. This resource area will enable you to meet the NMC outcomes to undertake the roles and keep yourself up to date.

Additionally, here are two useful links to provide an overview:
