We fully support our supervisors to be General Medical Council (GMC) accredited and have a Training the Trainers programme to ensure that our trainers have access to an ongoing continuous professional development programme for their ongoing supervisor accreditation, which now includes supervisor development sessions.
We also have our extremely successful annual Educators’ Conference, where speakers who are the leading edge of developments deliver presentations about the direction of travel in psychiatry. Consultants, specialty and associate specialist doctors and higher trainees from all areas of the Trust come together for a morning of interesting presentations, and an afternoon of stimulating and informative workshops.
The event also provides a great opportunity for networking and meeting colleagues from other areas and sharing ideas.
"The conference was a really good way of getting all our colleagues together, to learn from each other and to keep up to date as an educator."
