Ongoing Achievement Record
Assessment of Practice

Learning Disability Programme

The standards to support learning and assessment in practice
(NMC 2008, page 68) requires that: ‘An ongoing achievement
record including comments from mentors, must be passed from
one placement to the next to enable judgments to be made on
the student’s progress’.

In signing this page I am confirming that I have received the
ongoing achievement record and that I have read and
understood the above statement.
