Supervision training sessions for supervisors of ACPs

 

Employers must ensure that they can deliver practice-based support, leadership, senior clinical supervision and educational supervision to trainee ACPs in the workplace. The standards for advanced clinical practice cannot be met by academic study alone and it is an expectation of the employer by accepting a trainee ACP that they will be providing this essential aspect of the training within practice.

We anticipate that many supervisors are already experienced supervisors and have undertaken training. To ensure all trainee APs are receiving high quality support and supervision, we expect all supervisors to either:

 

Secondary care

  • Have current or recent experience of being the named educational supervisor for medical specialty trainees or to have undertaken a one-day clinical supervision course (many of the royal colleges offer these as does HEE) and
  • attend the faculty of advanced practice training session for supervisors of trainee advanced practitioners (sign up link found here).

 

Primary care

  • the educational supervisor will be approved by the HEE school of primary care and on the educational supervisor register; or to have undertaken the one-day level one supervision course run by the school of primary care. Further information, future training dates, and the application form can be found here; and
  • attend the faculty of advanced practice training session for supervisors of trainee advanced practitioners (sign up link found here).

 

The faculty of advanced practice has upcoming ACP specific supervision training, with the next session delivered remotely and all other sessions will be held face to face at Waterfront 4, Newcastle upon Tyne.

 

The next ACP specific supervision training sessions are:

  • Tuesday 27 September 2022: 13:00–16:30 (virtual – MS teams)
