For GP Educators

GP Supervisor Course

From late 2022 the new GP Supervisors Course will be mandatory for all GPs who wish to become educational supervisors, or a placement named clinical supervisors in primary care. This includes those wanting to be educational supervisor or GPs in specialty training (aka a GP trainer) or the named clinical supervisor of GPs STs or foundation doctors in clinical placements in general practice. This interactive course runs over 11 weeks (3 hours contact per week) on a virtual platform and has approximately 45 hours' time commitment (33 hours contact plus preparation).

The GP Supervisor Course replaces the former ISLA Course and GP Educational Supervisor Course.  Attendance will enable a GP to apply to become a clinical supervisor (F2, OOH supervisor) and educational supervisor (GP trainer).

Differential Attainment Toolkit

Differential attainment is the unexplained variation in attainment between groups who share a protected characteristic and those who do not share the same characteristic, for example, ethnicity, gender and disability.

We have an array of resources on our webpage which may be helpful for educators and for trainees who want to understand more about DA and to close the gap in attainment.

The DA Toolkit can be adapted for local use, in conjunction with the podcasts we have created. In addition, the Professional Support Unit is running a series of workshops around DA in 2021.
