developed a system to enable current
mentors and practice teachers to be mapped
against NMC requirements
    NIPEC Project Objectives


To ensure that service providers develop a
database for use in each locality to maintain a
register of mentors and practice teachers,
accessible to education providers


To ensure that service and education
programme providers have arrangements in
place for further development of current
mentors and practice teachers unable to
demonstrate that they meet NMC standards.

mentors and practice teachers meet service
needs for a regionally developed programme
that will prepare adequate numbers of
mentors and practice teachers to support
students
To ensure that preparation programmes for
mentors and practice teachers are approved
in accordance with NMC requirements in a
timely manner.

and that arrangements to meet the new
NMC standards are implemented across the
HPSS, where relevant, the Independent
Sector, and Education Providers.
