Achieving Recognition

Achieving Recognition alternative until 31st October

Due to the Coronavirus epidemic and social distancing requirements we are no longer able to deliver our usual training events for Consultants and SAS doctors to achieve recognition as a Trainer by the GMC. The Faculty development Team are working on new ways to deliver appropriate training, but this won’t be in place for August changeover.

In the interim we will accept Consultants and SAS doctors who have been selected to take on a supervisory role (and haven’t completed the required courses to be recognised by the GMC) completing the Clinical Supervision with Confidence Future learn on line course. This will facilitate being granted recognition before the permitted three month concession period for supervising a trainee without recognition finishes.

There will need to be a process within each Trust to allow this course to be funded for the member of staff who is required to achieve recognition. The £62 cost covers Certificate of Completion, 8hours CPD and an assessment at the end of the course with a pass mark of 90%.

Supervisors should also be made aware of local Trust supervision processes and to have an opportunity to pose questions to more senior educators about areas about which they are unclear.

NIMDTA will be hosting Trainee Support and Supervisory Skills on line learning events via Zoom booked through Intrepid which will involve a short presentation by appropriately trained facilitators followed by a Q&A. Dates to follow.

E&D can be completed on line as before through  HSCNI.

Since July 2016, it is a GMC requirement for a supervisor in a named Educational Supervisor (ES) or Clinical Supervisor (CS) role to be appropriately trained. NIMDTA have developed the STATUS programme of courses to enable trainers to meet these requirements:

Supervisory Skills

Teaching the Teacher

Anti-discrimination (Equality and Diversity Training)

Trainee Support

Unique to Specialty/Programme (training unique to specialty – curriculum, WPBAs, supervisor’s reports, ARCP decision aids)
