Education and Professional Development

The Education and Professional Development Committee provides a number of opportunities for Freeman and their guests.

Educational Forums

We provide 3 Forums each year to bring delegates together to explore contemporary issues facing the nursing profession and more generally, healthcare provision. These events are developed as a result of feedback from Freemen which enables The Company of Nurses to provide a rich and varied programme. Our events are always well attended and early booking is essential.

Coaching and Mentoring for Freeman

We are delighted to be able to provide an opportunity for Coaching and Mentoring to our members. This is likely to be available from September 2020 onwards. We have a number of qualified Coaches in The Company of Nurses who are ready to provide a number of coaching sessions to Freemen. These sessions will provide support to those who wish to explore the next career steps or role opportunities in their career.

We also have some very experienced nurses who have a wide range of experience within health and they too are willing to provide mentoring with a Freeman if that is helpful.

Livery School Link Volunteer Platform

We are very pleased that we are now a member of the Livery School Link and as volunteers, we will provide career outreach work to Schools.

Further information will be available once the Volunteering platform has been developed and we hope to go live in the Autumn of 2020.

Working with Future Frontiers 

We have developed a partnership with this charitable education organisation who support young people from lower income backgrounds to enable them to fulfil their potential. Future Frontiers provide a programme of career coaching and access to professional role models. The aim is to inspire young people to learn at school and ensure that those from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds are able to get the education, training and employment they need to have a successful future.

The Company of Nurses supports this work by:

  • Becoming a professional expert
  • Joining a career networking event

All of our events and activities contribute extremely well to a Revalidation Portfolio for those members working towards NMC re-registration.
