Helping you to develop excellent patient care in our future doctors 

Our purpose is to provide named clinical supervisors and educational supervisors with educational opportunities that meet the GMC’s mandatory standards for postgraduate medical supervisors. 

The quality of medical practice and the safety of patients are hugely dependent on the quality of training received by doctors in training.  Supervisors are pivotal to this and are required to demonstrate and evidence specific trainer competencies, as set out in the Academy of Medical Educators' (AoME) Framework for Medical Supervisors.  This framework was adopted by the GMC as part of their Recognising and Approving Trainers Implemental Plan (2012).

Therefore, our aim is to provide quality learning for supervisors which directly aligns to the GMC’s standards to give accreditation to new supervisors and reaccreditation to experienced supervisors. 

We are very proud of our region’s clinical and educational supervisors who continue to make a real difference to the learning experience of our doctors in training.  Our region continues to rank as number one in the GMC Trainee Survey for the quality of supervision.  We therefore know that committed and enthusiastic trainers are integral to inspiring the next generation of doctors and we fully endorse the comments in the GMC Trainer Survey 2017 which states, “Valuing training, the cornerstone of any workforce strategy, starts with valuing trainers.”

Our two-day Core Skills for Supervisors workshop is designed for consultants and SAS doctors new to supervision and senior trainees approaching CCT.  It presents essential knowledge and skills to get you started in your role and meets the requirements to become recognised as a trainer (supervisor) and provides Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for your educational role for three years.  It clarifies the role of the clinical and educational supervisor and explores topics such as workplace-based assessments, holding effective meetings and appraisals, writing supervision reports and action planning.  It presents feedback skills that encourage trainee-led performance discussions, describes the tell-tale signs that a trainee needs additional support and outlines both the escalation process and support mechanisms available.  


HEENE E-Learning: Educational and Clinical Supervisors Programme

This E-Learning session provides guidance for educational and clinical supervisors on how to manage the personalisation of work schedules, exception reporting and work schedule reviews.


HEE E-Learning: Supervising a Less than Full-time Trainee

HEE is committed to improving junior doctor’s working lives and championing flexible working more broadly. The programme aims to equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills to effectively supervise a LTFT trainee and raise awareness of the supervisor’s responsibilities.


Your ongoing CPD:

To maintain your accreditation as a trainer you are required to undertake a minimum of a half day CPD approved event, per year, in a topic relevant to supervision.  We provide a range of half day and full day specific courses as means to continually develop in your educational role - see our section on 'Framework of Learning for Experienced Trainers'.
