Welcome to the support site for practice educators in Operating Department.

About us

The section for Operation Department Practice is currently being constructed, apologies for any inconvenience. Please check again soon.




This website is designed for practice educators that support Operating Department Practice students from London South Bank University. Practice education is a key component of delivering courses for Operating Department Practice and therefore a high priority for the School.

The information on this website aims to support practice educators supervising students learning in practice. On this site there is information about the programmes students are studying, practice learning, assessing students on placement as well as placement documents.


The Operating Department programme offers preparation of practice educators as well as continual support through mentor updates and regular placement visits. We also value our relationships with our placement providers and have regular Lead Mentor Meetings throughout the year. Information relating to Practice Educator development and LM meetings are available on this site.

Ensuring quality learning environments for students is an important part of the partnership between the School of Health and Social Care and our practice placement providers. Information about quality monitoring procedures is available on this site.
