Within Greater Manchester a new model of undergraduate student nurse supervision in clinical practice has been implemented within predominantly adult and children and young people fields of practice. The Greater Manchester (GM) Synergy Model applies coaching methodologies with emphasis placed on student nurse?s clinical leadership development and collaborative and facilitative learning whilst at the same time increasing practice learning placement capacity in multiple areas. Health Education England (HEE) have commissioned a project with deliverables and outputs, with this being the final document that reports on key project areas: 1) Review of the existing literature that identifies the challenges, value and impact on clinical leadership when adopting models for undergraduate student support (coaching and mentoring) and presents new perspectives to what is already known 2) Development of the robust framework identifying the structures and processes required to implement and sustain GM Synergy both during and post completion of the project 3) Development of the robust eligibility and readiness framework for identifying potential GM Synergy clinical placement areas within healthcare organisations 4) Coaching educators in conjunction with identified organisational GM Synergy Lead to provide structured education and development opportunities 5) Development of the evidenced-informed recommendations for best practice in models of support that develop the undergraduate student?s clinical leadership skills, knowledge and behaviours. Where the model has been implemented, there is evidence of an increased capacity on the GM Synergy placement areas. Across adult and children and young people fields of practice there is an increase of practice learning placement in excess of 250 students.
