Educational supervisors are responsible for the overall supervision and management of a trainee’s educational progress. This RCP accreditation gives formal recognition to those with an explicit supervision role.

This two-day workshop addresses the seven areas of the Academy of Medical Educators’ Framework for the Professional Development of Postgraduate Medical Supervisors, identified within the forthcoming GMC Framework for the Recognition and Approval of trainers.

From 2013 the GMC is introducing their approvals framework for the recognition of all named educational and clinical supervisors. This RCP accreditation gives formal recognition to those with an explicit supervision role.

Workshop includes:

  • Essential knowledge and skills for an Educational Supervisor
  • How to make best use of the curriculum & e-portfolio to support your trainees
  • Objective setting; helping your trainees to set clear goals
  • The effective appraisal process
  • Giving effective feedback to trainees
  • Supporting underperforming trainees
  • Role of ARCP and Supervisor’s report


The accreditation is achieved by attending the two-day workshop and successfully completing a 1,000-word reflective assignment about the appraisal aspect of your role as an educational supervisor.

If you would like the RCP to deliver this workshop for you locally, please visit our in-house training pages.


Who should attend? Educational Supervisors from all specialties or doctors who will become Educational Supervisors in the near future.

This accreditation is suitable for doctors who are supervising trainees of any grade and specialty.
