Triennial Review:

The Triennial Review is NMC requirement for all mentors to provide evidence they are up to date and active as mentors (NMC, 2008).

Over a three year period you, as a mentor, are required to reflect upon and demonstrate your progress in mentoring and assessing students, a minimum of two in three years and that you have undertaken an annual mentor update.

This will be formally reviewed – often at appraisal and recorded on your organisations mentor register identifying you as a live mentor.

The University will allocate students to a placement area based on the number of live mentors with an ‘in date’ Triennial review.

Please download the Triennial Review guidance.
