Educational Supervision in the NHS Training Course

Who Would Benefit

All Educational Supervisors within the NHS who have not received formal tuition in the subject or who are in need of a refresher would be ideal for this healthcare training course.

Course Description

Educational supervisors are typically the first tier of career support for trainee doctors, as you are most likely to be able to take a more informed and constructive role about a particular trainee doctors strengths and weaknesses.


It is not expected that you will be an expert across the whole range of medical careers, instead, you will be expected to be able to direct trainee doctors to appropriate resources, so that they can begin to access the information that they need in order to decide whether that particular option might suit them. This programme will help Educational Supervisors to understand their role and differentiate it from that of the Clinical Supervisor, and utilise practical help so their trainees can achieve their potential
