Learning together: making my supervision simpler & safer - North West

  • CET event

Hallmark Hotel Manchester Airport, Stanley Road

Share options


Learning Together is a new session aimed at supervisors and trainees on the Scheme for Registration. We encourage supervisors to attend with their trainees.   

Effective supervision is a two way process and this session will help supervisors and trainees to make the most of this formative time together.     

We will ensure supervisors have a good understanding of how their trainees are assessed and we will provide them with the tools to ensure that they help their trainee prepare as effectively as possible for their assessments.   

We will help trainees further understand the supervision process by discussing their role in this relationship. We will also ensure trainees understand how to prepare and present records for supervision and assessment.    

3 interactive CET points have been approved.

Ideally supervisors and trainees will work in the same location however it is not essential.
