All those who have not had formal training in Teach the Teacher in the NHS or who are in need of a refresher.

Course Description

An important part of every Doctor’s life is the ability to Teach the Teacher and take on the teaching role in a number of different capacities, from educational supervision to workplace-based assessments. Both the Good Medical Practice and the Clinical Leadership Competency Framework encourage doctors to develop their skills to better help and support others to achieve and create a better service for their patients.


They are core skills which doctors will be assessed on each year at appraisal and your ability to constantly improve yourself are paramount to your success and career progression.


This 2-day programme is designed to instil the core skills and competencies necessary to ensure that you are teaching to the maximum of your own ability using the correct and necessary techniques.


Delegates are required to prepare one teaching session for one to one teaching on day one. This should be based on a piece of equipment or information. A 10-minute session for delivery on the second day of the programme needs to be prepared as well. The choice of subject matter is yours.
