NHS Preceptorship

Rather than relying on spreadsheets, notebooks and the goodwill of your people to deliver your Preceptorships, harness the potential for transformation with People Alchemy.

Our flexible learning tool uniquely helps you to deliver your Preceptorships digitally. Innovative technology painlessly enables digital mentoring, helping you to attract new talent, increase staff confidence, reduce turnover and enhance patient care.

Technology-enabled mentoring

Motivate and inspire new hires

If you want to attract the best nursing talent, then your Preceptorship process needs to be top notch. Our digital platform guarantees a consistent mentoring experience for every new hire, introducing and integrating new hires into your Trust.

Use People Alchemy to assign tasks and encourage experimentation and reflection directly through the system; automatically nudge and remind new nurses to get the support they need from mentors via SMS & email and ensure your preceptees have regular mentorship throughout their first twelve months.

The design and project management of our electronic portfolio has given us the opportunity to transform how staff’s knowledge and competencies are recorded. It enables me and the Trust to expand on shared working between departments, promoting communication and providing transparency between the learners, mentors, managers and the training team – true collaboration at its best!

Evaluate processes and measure impact

Monitor their progress

There’s nothing worse than not really understanding how new preceptees are faring. It’s not always easy for us to quantify and measure progress, when everything in mentorship is locked in emails and face-to-face conversations. Using a digital platform meets both individual and organisational needs – provide new staff with essential, ongoing support whilst also seeing how successful your preceptorship process really is.

Learning workflows allow you to keep a digital record of progress and guarantee the preceptee will meet the aims and outcomes of your preceptorship programme within your agreed timeframe. It’s everything you need to sustain active participation in your Preceptorship programme.
