Becoming recognised and maintaining recognition as a supervisor

To become a recognised supervisor we require the following:

  1. To have attended an 'induction' supervisor course. As an example, HEE Wessex run a two-day induction course named Recognition of Trainers: Induction for ES and NCS.
  2. The DME at your employing Trust must confirm their support for you to act as a supervisor (their support is obtained by the Quality Team via email).

 For ongoing recognition we will require the supervisor's appraiser to confirm that they have:

  • Discussed the role of educational supervisor (or named clinical supervisor) at each annual appraisal as part of full scope of practice.
  • Provided written feedback with reflections on at least one ES ARCP report in a five year cycle an Educational Supervisor.
  • Completed a minimum of 10 hours of CPD, that must include at least 8 hours of face-to-face training relevant to the role, with e-learning making up the difference (e.g. e-learning for health), with reflections. A full list of face-to-face training available in HEE Wessex is listed here.
