Student Practice Placement

Arrow In this section

WELCOME TO MFT! This information is for all students to help you get the most out of your practice placement experience.

The Trust works in collaboration with Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) across Greater Manchester to provide practice placements for pre-registration nursing, midwifery, allied health professional (AHP) and healthcare scientist learners.

MFT provides clinical learning experiences for a wide range of professional groups in both acute and community settings across various hospital and community sites.

We hope that the information you find on these pages will be useful and give you an insight into your placement and the learning opportunities available.

Have a fantastic placement experience and do contact your PEF if you have any queries. If this is prior to starting your placement please email the Oxford Road Campus site PEF team on: Pef.Team@mft.nhs.uk or the Wythenshawe, Trafford, Withington, Altrincham site PEF team on: PEF.team-south@mft.nhs.uk

Practice Education Facilitator (PEF) Team

The Practice Education Facilitator (PEF) Team is part of the Professional Education and Development Team, which has a wider remit regarding professional education and development; including preceptorship, return to practice, clinical skills and revalidation.

Role of the PEF team

  • Providing on-site support to learners/staff with educational concerns/queries
  • Information on the completion of learner documentation
  • Support with the failing learner
  • Support with learners requiring reasonable adjustments
  • Information on university curriculums/requirements

For your individual PEF contact details please see your student notice board/folder for your placement area.

Watch our new Vision and Values in action – Together Care Matters

Following the recent launch of our new Vision, Values and Behaviours at MFT, we have developed a short film to help embed these across the organisation:

Everyone Matters           Working Together
Dignity and Care            Open and Honest  

These Values are the principles which guide the way we work every day, to ensure our services are the very best they can be for our patients and for our workforce. Thank you to all the staff and patients who kindly agreed to take part in the film and we do hope you enjoy watching.
