As part of a Trust led initiative to support our mentors we will be offering mentor update days to qualified, active mentors across the Trust that support our future paramedic workforce. This update will consist of a 7.5 hour day that will provide an update on the mentoring process, the professional aspects of mentoring, feedback and assessment, as well as providing a forum for discussion on any issues or concerns you have.  Staff who recently did the face to face Mentor Courses (in the last year) do not need to attend these update days until next year. These days will be offered on overtime, and can be booked via the SWAST CPD Website.

These days are paid and are to be booked via the SWAST CPD Website. The days will consist of the following:
