Additional Trainer Workshop

  • Wed 4th December 2019

We have decided to run an additional Trainer Workshop on 4th December, with the aim of better supporting you in your work as a GP Trainer.

We thought an interactive TPD led session (me, Rubi V, and Mike Smith) might help to empower you.

Early identification has identified several areas:

  • How to deal with difficult conversations / situations;
  • IMG issues;
  • Empowering ES’s to fail GPRs capabilities; improving Trainer confidence with “rating”.
  • Transparency…recording concerns.
  • Unauthorised absence: how we plan to deal with this.
