Generic Skills Training Courses
(Blended Learning Delivery)
The role of the Educational Supervisor in developing tomorrow’s doctors has been firmly established and enhanced. “The New Doctor” (GMC) was published 1997; “A Guide to Registrar Training” 1998 (Department of Health) commonly known as the Orange Guide and later revised as “A Guide to Postgraduate Specialty Training in the UK in 2007” (The Gold Guide)
Effective educational supervision is at the core of Postgraduate training in all medical specialties. It follows that a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities is fundamental to effective educational supervision. There are a number of competencies required to facilitate good educational supervision so that the trainee’s opportunities for professional development are maximised. Unfortunately a small percentage of trainees experience problems during the course of their postgraduate training. In these circumstances skilled help is required to assess and enable progress.
The Deanery Course is designed to allow new Consultants (and SpRs/StRs with responsibility for Educational Supervision) to perform their role in this regard effectively, enjoyably and to trainers’ and trainees’ mutual satisfaction. Clearly from the Trust’s perspective, arranging appropriate educational supervision is important for governance, risk and patient safety reasons.
The new format of blended e-learning & face to face delivery will consist of five online modules and a half day face to face classroom session to complete the course.
The online modules are:
- Appraisal of Trainees
- Trainees in Difficulty
- Educational Supervision
- Workplace-based Assessment
- Careers Development
It is important to complete all 5 modules of the e-learning section of the programme before attending the half day classroom training session
The Deanery has secured 4 CPD points per on line module as well as 4 points for attendance at the face to face module.
The on line Careers Development module is brand new and provisional approval of 4 points has been awarded, however formal notification from the Royal College is still awaited
