WHO? Undergraduate education Those responsible for overseeing students’ progress at each medical school Lead coordinators at each local education provider (LEP) Postgraduate training Named educational supervisors Named clinical supervisors
Named Educational Supervisor A trainer who is selected and appropriately trained Responsible for the overall supervision and management of a trainee’s trajectory of learning and educational progress during a placement or series of placements Helps the trainee to plan their training and achieve agreed learning outcomes Responsible for setting educational goals and for bringing together all relevant evidence to form a summative judgement at the end of the placement or series of placements. By the nature of their ES accreditation is automatically accredited to be a clinical supervisor
Named Clinical Supervisor A trainer who is responsible for overseeing a specified trainee’s clinical work throughout a placement in a clinical or medical environment Is appropriately trained to do so will provide constructive feedback during that placement will lead on providing a review of the trainee’s clinical or medical practice throughout the placement that will contribute to the educational supervisor’s report on whether the trainee should progress to the next stage of their training.
WHO’S LEFT? Sessional Clinical Supervisor A trainer who supervises the trainee’s emergency or elective clinical work but does not have responsibility for overseeing the sum of the trainee’s clinical activity throughout a placement Not a “named” clinical or educational supervisor Does not require GMC recognition
WHO’S LEFT? ES with no trainees OK to meet criteria whilst waiting No associated tariff Tutors / TPDs who aren’t ESs Meeting ES criteria may help job planning
How will Educational Supervisors be recognised by the Wales Deanery? Educational Supervisors in Wales will be required to sign and meet the requirements of the Educational Supervision Agreement The Agreement defines the roles, responsibilities and rights of the three parties: –An Educational Supervisor –A Local Education Provider –The Wales Deanery
What are the key aims of the ES Agreement? The Agreement aims to professionalise the Educational Supervisor role by: Clearly defining the roles, responsibilities and rights of those providing educational supervision and those supporting Educational Supervisors Ensuring that ESs receive protected time, resources and support to deliver educational role, including increased recognition of the Educational Supervisor role within the Consultant job planning process and access to appropriate training Protected time to undertake the Educational Supervisor role = 0.25 SPA per week per trainee
What are the requirements detailed in the Agreement? The Agreement includes an ES responsibility to meet the GMC CPD requirements as follows: –Eight hours of Educational CPD per year –Four of the eight hours to be recognised by CPD certificates and provided as evidence at annual appraisal –Cover at least two different domains of the GMC’s Framework per year –Cover all seven GMC Framework domains over a five year cycle
What are the requirements detailed in the Agreement? and… ES must demonstrate/provide evidence of appropriate attitudes and behaviours –End of placement evaluation/feedback forms –GMC survey results –Teaching evaluation forms –Trainee audits and critical incidents –Multisource feedback forms –Letters of thanks –Prior educational experience will be recorded but, as the Agreement is a prospective commitment, grandfather clauses will not apply.
WHAT ABOUT THE NAMED CLINICAL SUPERVISORS? Accreditation will commence after ES process Majority will already be educational supervisors No need to sign agreement No tariff agreed – as yet
How will the Deanery monitor the implementation of the process? The compliance of individual ES and CSs will be monitored at annual appraisal, where evidence of CPD activity and appropriate skills and behaviours will be required. The Deanery will work to: Establish arrangements to monitor trainer, Employer and Deanery compliance with Agreement responsibilities and requirements Develop remediation and other processes to handle instances in which requirements are not met
How will the Deanery monitor the implementation of the process? Mechanisms for Deanery monitoring of the compliance of Employers may include: The production of reports on the CPD activity of trainers from the Intrepid database The production of reports of average SPA time allocated to groups of trainers from the MARS appraisal system Triangulation with training quality data
TIMELINE 31 st July 2013Deanery systems and databases are ready 31 st July 2014All trainers to be registered on the database and have either provisional or full recognition 31 st July 2016New arrangements to be fully implemented
IDENTIFICATION OF ES / CSs Process commences November 2013 Local Faculty Leads (for trainers) will be responsible for the process in their Health Board and will roll out the Agreement in their Health Boards as they see fit LFLs will liaise with Training Programme Directors, Tutors, Postgraduate Centre Managers, Specialty Training Managers Regular update reports to Deanery on which specialties are signed up
