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 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.
