What are placements? 

Nottinghamshire Alliance Training Hub (NATH) find suitable placement opportunities for students who want to gain experience in, or are seeking a career in primary and community care. Placements form a valuable part of their learning experience. It enables students to gain real life skills and knowledge that will support their course objectives and career development. Placements vary in length depending on individual course requirements. 
NATH works in partnership with Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) across the region to support student placements across a range of courses. This is central to our work and forms one of the six core functions each training hub is commissioned to deliver against. 
How to become a  
placement provider 
NATH would like to encourage all GP Practices in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire to consider offering a student placement. We feel the local area offers excellent examples of primary and community care provision. By offering a placement, it encourages students to remain in the county after graduation. This in turn supports local workforce planning. 
If you are interested in becoming a placement provider, please email and a member of the NATH Team will get in contact with you regarding next steps. 
How to become a  
Practice Supervisor and Practice Assessor 
In 2018 the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) introduced new Standards for Student Supervision & Assessment (SSSA) which includes the requirement that all NMC registrants should be ‘suitably prepared’ to undertake the role of student supervision and assessment as part of the nursing role. 
We have developed self-directed training slides to support nurses to become Practice Supervisors and Practice Assessors.
