Statement updated on 29th June 2020
The pandemic has highlighted that some placement providers may have challenges in the availability of personal protective equipment and opportunities for students to attend clinics, patient facing events, limited access to equipment and procedures to complete work-based competencies. The School has provided advice on the use of alternative methods of assessment to compete and progress students.
It is important that the student can demonstrate competency in a procedure or task and achieve the relevant Learning Outcomes. The School does not require specific numbers of a procedure or task to be completed by a student on placement.
