Educational supervisor workshop and accreditation - Liverpool

Educational supervisors are responsible for the overall supervision and management of a trainee’s educational progress. This 2-day workshop addresses the seven areas of the Academy of Medical Educators’ Framework for the Professional Development of Postgraduate Medical Supervisors, and the General Medical Council (GMC) standards for the recognition and approval of trainers.

Workshop includes:

  • essential knowledge and skills for an educational supervisor
  • how to make best use of the curriculum and e-portfolio to support your trainees
  • objective setting – helping your trainees to set clear goals
  • the effective appraisal process
  • giving effective feedback to trainees
  • supporting underperforming trainees
  • role of the Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP) and supervisor’s report.

Very useful for developing skills in being an educational supervisor and actually for my own appraisal performance.
