 12 CPD Approved

Training the Clinical Trainer aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of senior trainees in educational practice within a clinical setting.

Book Now Closing date: 01 May 2024


This two-part online training the trainer course aims to enhance 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 skills to meet the trainer criteria as set out in the GMC recognition 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. 

To provide necessary flexibility, the College has restructured the course content to enable remote delivery and participation. It will, however, retain interactive small-group elements that enhance the quality of the learning experience and is delivered by a lecturer in adult education.
