This session introduces a collaborative action research study carried out by Northumbria University and Northumbria Healthcare Trust. The project responded to professional concerns regarding current models of mentorship (Willis 2012; NNRU 2012; Crombie 2013) and acted as a pilot for future NMC (2018) standards. The aim of the project was to empower students and practitioners to find solutions to: increase their capacity to support students; and develop models which maximise student experiences and learning in practice – the key to employability. The data collected enabled the research team to co-produce a framework for practice with students and practitioners – the 6 Cs for practice education.
