Recognition of Trainers courses

Recognition of Trainers courses are specifically designed to support Health Education England (Wessex) Educational and Clinical Supervisors in training junior doctors.

Doctors of all specialties can train to obtain a role as an Educational and/or Clinical Supervisor once they reach Associate Specialist or Consultant grade. Specialist Training Registrars within 6 months of their CCT date can also train in preparation for obtaining these roles following promotion, but cannot practice until they reach the required grade.  

As we learn from experience the courses are designed to be interactive and practical. Regular feedback shows that they are also highly enjoyable.

Recognition and Re-recognition

Those wishing to become a newly recognised Health Education England (Wessex) educational and clinical supervisor should attend the two-day Recognition of Trainers: Induction for ES and NCS course. Those wishing to only gain recognition as a named clinical supervisor should attend the Recognition of Trainers: Induction for NCS.

Please click here for further information on the GMC Recognition of Trainers process and information on how to remain recognised.

Delegates can attend a Recognition of Trainers: Refresher for ES and NCS event between three and five years after their previous recognition, if they wish to use it to contribute towards their eight hours face-to-face CPD training. If delegates exceed the five year period and do not reach the 10 hours of CPD they are expected to attend the two-day Recognition of Trainers: Induction for ES and NCS course in order to update their recognition.
