  • This course aims to enhance your knowledge of, and skills in, educational practice within a clinical setting. Designed for senior trainees across all specialties and mapped to CCT requirements, it will provide attendees with knowledge and skills to meet the criteria set out in the GMC’s recognition and approval of trainers requirements. It introduces participants to some of the key theoretical frameworks that underpin contemporary educational practice and demonstrates how these may be applied constructively and flexibly in clinical teaching. By highlighting the benefits of reflective practice and of sharing and developing good practice with colleagues, it will contribute to the continuing professional development of clinicians with training responsibilities.

    This course is delivered by a lecturer in adult education and clinicians with a wealth of experience in clinical education.

    • Demonstrate an enhanced understanding of the nature and characteristics of the clinical learning environment
