We know that the transition from student to registered clinician can be a big step. We are committed to supporting newly qualified nurses and Allied Health Professionals to navigate this, and provide a preceptorship programme for the first year after qualification.

We want you to feel supported, engaged, and able to develop as a professional nurse with us. The preceptorship programme is designed and delivered by senior mental health professionals and peer trainers (people with lived experience of accessing mental health services). 

The first nine months of the preceptorship programme include six study days. You will also be allocated a Preceptor to support you through the process of preceptorship and help you with your development.

As part of your statutory and mandatory training you will meet and learn from and alongside newly qualified practitioners from other professions. Your Preceptor will be there to support you to access these different learning events. We provide a workbook to document your preceptee journey which will help to inform your first revalidation. 

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

The preceptorship programme is a great opportunity to map out your continuing professional development and consider how you want to progress your career as a nurse. The programme is also a platform for you to reflect on and evaluate your role, your identity as a nurse, and acknowledge when you need that extra support from your preceptor and your multi-professional team.

Preceptorship: Newly qualified Allied Health Professionals

Supporting newly qualified Allied Health Professionals is crucial if we are to continue to deliver consistently high-quality care to people who use our services. 

As a newly qualified AHP, when you start at Sussex Partnership you will be allocated a Preceptor to support you through the process of preceptorship and help you to further develop your practice.

You will be given the time and space to consolidate your skills through a personally tailored development programme, as well as having the opportunity to meet with other new graduates for peer support.

Studying and clinical placements

You will receive regular clinical, professional and managerial supervision and have access to internal training and development opportunities to help you to grow in confidence and skills as a professional and further develop your professional identity.

The programme will also support you to grow in your role and further develop your clinical and professional skills.
