Preceptorship Programme

Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CFT) preceptorship

CFT preceptorship is for newly qualified nurses and allied health professionals entering the Trust, staff that are returning to practice, or for staff that may be transitioning from one part of the register to another (for example nursing associate to registered nurse). 

What is preceptorship?

The preceptorship is a 2 year supported transition period to enhance the skills, knowledge, competence and confidence of our newly qualified staff. 

What does it involve?

  • Regular support from senior members of your team and practice educators from the education and training team
  • Protected time to attend training days designed to enhance your development
  • Health and wellbeing sessions focusing on resilience and self-care
  • Year 1 aims to support you as a newly qualified professional
  • Year 2 aims to provide you with skills development to support your further career path choices
  • The programme is multi-disciplinary, enhancing conversations and diversity
