In order to maintain your status of Mentor/’Sign Off’ Mentor or PPE, the NMC (2008) and HCPC (2009) require you to keep a portfolio to demonstrate you maintain competence in supporting learners that can be reviewed at appraisal.
The Triennial Review is NMC requirement for all mentors to provide evidence they are up to date and active as mentors.
Over a three year period you, as a mentor, are required to reflect upon and demonstrate your progress in mentoring and assessing students, a minimum of two in three years and that you have undertaken an annual mentor update.
This will be formally reviewed – often at appraisal and recorded on your organisations mentor register identifying you as a live mentor.
The University will allocate students to a placement area based on the number of live mentors with an ‘in date’ Triennial review.
For information on Triennial Review please download and read our Triennial Review guidance and watch our video.
For Allied Health Professions there is also a portfolio outline document.
