SubjectSuppoRTT (Return to Training)
DescriptionCoaching skills are valuable in educational supervision, particularly when working with vulnerable or anxious trainees. The tools shared in this workshop are specifically related to developing greater trainee confidence. The evidence tells us coaching skills are beneficial in our professional roles and relationships, and evaluations tell us they have a positive impact. Equipping professionals with skills that enhance their communication is an important part of improving patient care and the patient experience, as well as boosting self-confidence in managing what could be demanding educational relationships. Current national strategy such as the NHS Long Term Plan and NHS People Plan call for more opportunities for coaching, as well as activities based on coaching.
Additional information

What will this workshop involve?

This interactive workshop will introduce ES's to a range of tools for educational supervision and to the 10 minute pause - an easy-to-use model for team supervision and wellbeing used extensively in healthcare teams across the UK.

A mixture of theory and small group work in the session means participants will be able to take away and use their learning immediately in their educational role with returning trainees. Some tools will be drawn from schools of coaching and others from ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which has a robust evidence base for practical tools addressing anxiety). The range of tools offered is informed by working with SuppoRTT since its inception and listening to feedback from both trainees and trainers.
