Subject specific learning outcomes – Level 7 (Postgraduate)
1. Critically evaluate and perform the role of mentor demonstrating the achievement of the mentorship standards of the professional body.
2. Critically explore the learning needs of students evaluating the role of the clinical learning environment on student performance
3. Critically analyse and evaluate the essential skills, knowledge and attributes of mentors to support learning in practice
4. Critically evaluate the role of mentor in the assessment of clinical competency analysing and implementing the evidence base in practice

Candidates studying at masters level must submit a 1500 word proposal
as to how they could improve their learning environment and/or the mentorship therein. The
proposal will indicate further evidence of the achievement of the mentor domains and should
be mapped to indicate which competencies this relates to.

This proposal aspect is academically marked at Undergraduate Degree Level (6) , or Postgraduate
level (7) and so should be written in an effective literary style, with the support of relevant
theoretical concepts, appropriate literature and research. A reference list is required and should be
included at the end of the portfolio. To make the most of your proposal you must read and use the
School of Health and Social Care academic writing guidance which will be available to you at the
commencement of the programme.
The proposal should be structured with an introduction (following your SWOT analysis), which
highlights your intentions, to develop an aspect of your learning environment and which NMC
mentor Domain/s this relates to.
The main body of your proposal should critically analyse/evaluate your key points with an effective
literary style approriate to your selected level, with clear definition of topic and a logical structure.
Relevance/ application to practice with the use of supporting literature/synthesis and evidence of
wide reading and effective referencing is essential to support your discussions. Conclusions should
be drawn in light of this discussion.

My swot analysis highlights the importance and difficulty of providing constructive criticism, and my proposal should reflect this.
