Additional information

About the course:

By 2020, Royal Colleges will need to demonstrate that they are assessing the professional and generic skills of their trainees alongside clinical and technical skills.

We are running a number of half-day workshops for trainers to help explore, discuss and contribute to the design of a practical, usable and acceptable method to evaluate and assess the Professional and Generic skills demonstrated by your trainees during their specialty training.

The Professional Capabilities Framework, as published by the GMC, sets out the essential generic capabilities needed for safe, effective and high-quality medical care in the UK. As part of your own training and educational development as a Trainer, you will need to be able to demonstrate that you have the necessary skills and understanding of these generic professional capabilities to assess them, and be able to provide specific comments and feedback on a trainee’s performance. Trainers should be confident and supported in expressing their professional judgement about generic outcomes alongside specialty outcomes for their trainees, as well as being able to give feedback to trainees to identify areas for improvement and highlight areas of excellence.


Who is this workshop for?

It is aimed at Education and Clinical Supervisors, as well as Training Programme Directors and Heads of School. Directors of Medical Education are welcome to attend to ensure this information is spread as widely as possible.
