Training the Trainers for Supervisors

Training the Trainers for Supervisors
“Teaching & Enhancing Learning” will help teachers and trainers develop a variety of educational skills that will engage trainees and help them learn efficiently and effectively.   This course uses a blend of independent preparatory learning with intensively facilitated practical sessions on the day. It is suitable for all doctors especially those in training roles (eg:  Clinical and Educational Supervisors, College Tutors, TPDs, RAs HoSs). The course uses a blend of independent preparatory learning with intensively-facilitated practical sessions on the day.  Pre-recorded lectures and preparatory work must be completed beforehand to support the small-group work.


By independently studying p re-recorded lectures and learning material before attending the course, delegates will understand the needs of learners and tools utilised in teaching, and how to apply them. These tools include:

  • Understanding learners’ needs
  • Techniques to enhance the value of teaching
  • Tailoring teaching to the learners
  • Setting aims and objectives
  • Designing a teaching session
  • Teaching practical skills, including surgery
  • Evaluation and feedback


    By attending the course delegates will take part in multiple intensively facilitated small-group practical sessions during which they will fine-tune their skills to apply these tools. They will practice how best to:

  • use objective setting to stimulate and direct learning
  • plan a teaching half day to maximise interest and learning
  • deliver teaching
  • use interactive techniques
  • use a four-step approach to teaching practical skills
  • evaluate teaching and improve through feedback
