Welcome to the Brookes electronic Practice Assessment Document (BePAD) which is used to record Nursing and Paramedic student’s journeys through their practice placements.  The BePAD enables students and their supervisors/practice assessors to gather and record evidence of learning, achievements, progression points and attainment of practice learning outcomes throughout their programme of study.

The BePAD is currently available for:

  • All Pre-registration Nursing programmes
  • Paramedic programmes
  • Nursing Associate

The BePAD for each programme has a bespoke design and contains the same records and assessment as previous hard copy documents. The BePAD supports a structured approach to learning in practice and encourages reflection and thoughtful planning for students in their placements. The BePAD allows the student, practice and university staff to view individual student’s BePAD at the same time and remotely.  This facilitates timely and thorough assessment.

Students are able to upload documents into the BePAD to provide additional evidence for their learning. Feedback, comments or action plans must not be deleted from the BePAD, as this is an ongoing record of the student achievement.
