Information for current educational supervisors

From 1 August 2017, for fully trained educational supervisors it will not be mandatory to cyclically repeat the Edgecumbe online training and the HETV one day course.

Instead, educational supervisors will be asked to demonstrate four hours of CPD a year of relevant educational activities. This would be captured in the CPD section as part of the appraisal.

The Tripartite Agreement

The Tripartite Agreement clarifies the respective roles of Health Education Thames Valley (HETV), the Trust and the educational supervisor.

In brief, the role of HETV is to support the collation of relevant databases of ESs and identify and approve training programs, to collate feedback on educational supervision, review policies for quality assurance of training, and to communicate changes to national educational policies.

The broad role of the Trust is to share the relevant information to facilitate quality assurance, recruit, support and accredit trainers, ensure educational supervisors have time to access recognised training episodes (in their job plans), and provide local faculty support.
