Ewie Sosnowska, Head Nurse at Dentale Bristol, has recently been attending evening classes to work towards gaining an additional qualification. The results are out! We pleased to announce that Ewie has been awarded with the Level 4: Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTTLS). Everyone at Dentale would to say “Well done, Ewie!”
PTLLS is a professional teaching qualification from City and Guilds. It covers a variety of topics including how to structure a session, different teaching and learning methods, how to meet individual learner needs, checking understanding, motivating and inspiring people and appreciating and overcoming people’s barriers.
To demonstrate her teaching competency Ewie had to submit theoretical assignments, complete a reflective learning journal and, the grand finale of the course, to deliver a 30 minute practical teaching session to a group of students.
Ewie’s new skills will be put into practice during her day to day nursing role, in particular when she is carrying out the free pre-treatment patient consultations that we offer.
Ewie will also expand the Dentale course portfolio by writing and delivering courses and CPD events for dental nurses. Topics and dates will be announced soon so keep an eye on our website.
