Level 1 Clinical Supervisor Training  


We are looking to create a cohort of Primary Care Clinical Supervisors to support GP Trainers. This will enable more trainers to consider hosting multiple trainees.

From July 2020 we are launching a series of one day ‘Level 1’ Clinical Supervisor training days (dates below).

This training will cover:

  • The nature of workplace learning – what is being learnt and how
  • Learning from experience and how the educator facilitates this, in particular using skills of questioning and feedback
  • Key factors that influence the learning process, such as motivation, safety, self-efficacy 
  • Learning from observation and modelling
  • Patient safety

This level will also be appropriate for OOH clinical supervisors, and those supervising Advanced Clinical Practitioners, Physician Associates, Clinical Pharmacists and Foundation Drs, and will be the first step on a primary care educators journey.

It will be available for any post CCT GPs and will be free to attend.

Those who attend will receive a certificate confirming they are registered with the School of Primary Care as a Primary Care Clinical Supervisor, which will be valid for 5 years.
