Achieving Recognition


(Updated 16.10.2020)

To enable training to be achieved while there is reduced capacity to deliver this due to the pandemic, potential trainers can complete the following:

New Interim Achieving Recognition Process for Trainers:

1. HEE e-Learning for Healthcare (ELFH):
Trainers should complete the free HEE E-Learning for Health (ELFH) modules 1-7 under Educator Training Resources accessible from the home page of ELFH.
The modules are a combination of slides and videos. Some sections are repeated under several module headings and need only be completed once.
Modules related to GP Trainers and Pharmacy do not require completion.
(This replaces the UEA online course ‘Clinical Supervision with Confidence’ as this is no longer available due to oversubscription.)

2. NIMDTA Trainee Support & Supervisory Skills supplementary online courses
Attendance is required at the NIMDTA provided online supplementary courses for Trainee Support & Supervisory Skills.
Further dates for these courses will be arranged and this group of trainers will be prioritised for places.

3. Equality and Diversity module online through HSCNI OR attend the NIMDTA online learning session.

Please Note:
 Equivalent Courses if run by Trusts or Colleges will also still be accepted as before.

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)
