Compulsory Supervisior training videos (from June 2014)
Please be aware that from June 2014, all supervisors will have to complete the online Introduction to Supervision training. This will be a compulsory part of becoming a supervisor and all new supervisor forms and future enrolment forms will be checked against our training records before being approved. If a supervisor has not completed the online training, then the processing of new pre-registration trainees' enrolment or change of supervisor forms will be delayed.
