HPSET are launching a new Practice Assessment Handbook (PAH) for students undertaking the Foundation Degree from 2021.
The mentor training has also been updated to match changes to the PAH.

During 2020, it was necessary to make some changes to the way HPSET deliver mentor training because of the Covid-19 restrictions. Rather than invite prospective mentors to attend a college-based workshop, we provided reading material by email, followed by live sessions on Zoom. There was very positive feedback to this new model and we have therefore decided to continue providing the mentor training remotely for the next student intake in September 2021.

We are opening the mentor training sessions from June 2021 and will add dates throughout the Summer, in line with interest from registrants. Consequently, there will be no college-based mentor training this year.

HPSET are pleased to announce the next dates for mentor training. Please contact the registration coordinator to reserve a place at one of the sessions. All mentors, whether new, or those refreshing their training welcome to attend either session.
