Many congratulations to all the winners of who received an award at the CPHVA award ceremony on 8 April in London, including Patricia Kelly (one of our Fellows) who won Practice Teacher of the year.
The Practice Teacher is essential in preparing the practitioner of tomorrow and is someone who demonstrates outstanding care within their practice setting, is an advocate and professional role model and shows a personal commitment to continuing education for themselves and/or others.
Patricia commented on her award:
I am thrilled to win the CPHVA’s Practice Teacher of the Year Award, what an honour! Practice Teachers are the gatekeepers to our profession and as such play an extremely important role in teaching and nurturing the next generation of practitioners. I am proud to be one of such a hard working group of professionals and thank all the practice teachers in my Trust for their continued hard work and support.
