Peer Support Network 2020 - London January cohort

The Peer Support Network brings together doctors who are working towards their RCP Educator accreditation. The network is a blend of three 1-day workshops, together with access to a dedicated online site for discussion and activities.

By booking onto this Peer Support Network course, you will be automatically registered for all three face-to-face workshops:

Day 1: Wednesday 15 January 2020

Day 2: Thursday 26 March 2020

Day 3: Tuesday 2 June2020

Please ensure you are able to attend all three dates before you book.

During the course, delegates will undertake two small-scale, educational workplace projects. They will use the workshops, as well as the online forums and activities, to discuss these projects, refine ideas, and provide support to their peers. A brief report of these projects is submitted and assessed by the RCP tutors.

I’ve found this entire teaching course and accreditation incredibly useful and accessible [...] Really feel it has changed my practice with evaluation and developing programmes of education.
