Since the launch of this blended learning programme in 2014, and up until the end of August 2015, 756 Educational/Clinical Supervisors have completed the e-learning module through the HEE YH web based LMS platform, plus many more via their own Trust based NLMS system.

HEE YH have held 157 follow up face to face sessions at varying Trusts in the region, with 1663 Educational/Clinical Supervisors in attendance.

The programme has been very well received, with attendees commenting on how this has been of huge assistance with the day to day training and management of junior doctors.

Below are some samples of the feedback that have been received in relation to the blended learning package:

 e-learning package 

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has developed an e-learning session for Educational Supervisors of less than full time (LTFT) trainee doctors. The session aims to equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills to effectively supervise a LTFT trainee and raise awareness of the supervisors’ responsibilities.

 HEE is committed to improving Junior Doctors’ working lives and championing flexible working more broadly. With work/life balance highlighted as a mounting concern to doctors in training, and the risk of “burnout” affecting recruitment and retention in some specialties, the need for increased understanding and positive promotion of Less than Full Time Training is essential.

Course Outline

  • 20-25 minute e-learning session for supervision of a less than full time trainee
  • Your duties as a supervisor of a LTFT trainee under the Equality Act 2010
