Assessment and Learning in Practice Settings

Assessment and Learning in Practice Settings (ALPS) 

Supporting students in practice settings is an integral part of the preparation of health care professionals. The Faculty of Health Sciences is committed to ensuring that students are appropriately supported during their practice learning placements. This involves ensuring that all those involved in supporting students in practice settings have the information that they require when they require it. This site has been designed to provide the information that is required to effectively support students in practice.
