Clinical (HEE) Contact Days 

Tier 3 – Educational Supervisor - core content

  • Trainee in Difficulty
  • Induction, including educational contract
  • SuppoRTT
  • Clinical/Educational supervisors report
  • Educational Hierarchy
  • Peer-peer learning

HEE have partnered with five centres across East of England, to develop and provide face-to-face teaching on the practical, everyday aspects of educational supervision that supports the trainer in the areas of supervision they expected to provide.

The core content of the contact day is mapped to the academy of medical educators and GMC standards for educational supervision, and is open to educators in Tiers 2 and 3. In addition there will be an update day for those experienced in education, or those close to revalidation, wanting to refresh their knowledge and skills.

If you are starting your journey as an educator the HEE day should be attended after a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 18 months following your HEI contact day. It is anticipated that the learner will have completed  the recommended e-LfH modules before attending  the contact day.

Each centre will deliver the course for any educator in East of England, with a focus on working with and providing access to local primary care doctors, public health doctors and sister hospitals. It is a generic educators course for ALL specialties.

The contact days are free to delegates at a choice of five centres across East of England and award external CPD points.

Specialty specific (TPD/CT/School supported)

  • e-portfolio
  • career support
  • exam preparation – topics
  • exam preparation – techniques
  • exam preparation – specific stages (eg. AKT/CSA)
  • specific WBA/SLEs
  • Out-of-hours

Whilst HEE have a generic educators development plan we recognise there will be specific requirements for supervision in your own specialty. These are being delivered by your Schools and form part of their bespoke faculty development plan.
