Welcome to our Educators in Primary Care information page

In this section you will find details of resources available for those supervising learners in primary care.  Whether you are a clinical pharmacist supervising a pre-registration student, a practice nurse providing workplace supervision to a physician associate, or you are one of the many new ARRS roles undertaking a supervisory role for the first time, you may find the resources below useful for your development as an educator.

Please note if you are a GP and you wish to supervise GP specialty specific learners (FY2 supervisor, clinical supervisor, educational supervisor/GP Trainer) please visit the HEE GP School page here.  There is now a mandatory course which all GP educators need to undertake.

Resources Available from 2022:                                                                                    

Introduction to Clinical Education and Training: 

A new multi-professional course for clinical educators and supervisors in primary and community care.

E-learning Resources:

If you would like to undertake online learning, then you can access over 30 individual short modules on Educator Training Resources site at: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/educator-training-resources/

Completing a masters level programme at a university (PGCert, PGDip or Masters):

Although it’s not mandatory to complete a masters level programme to become a supervisor in primary care, we acknowledge that some educators would like to undertake an M-level programme to further their knowledge and skills as an educator.

Supervisors may wish to start by enrolling on a PG Certificate course in the first instance, progressing to a Diploma and/or a masters degree at a later stage. Most universities deliver a programme in clinical / healthcare education and offer a flexible approach to study and completion. Contact your local institution for further information.

In order to encourage and support such an undertaking, the Multiprofesional Faculty Development team provide scholarships (maximum £1,750 available) to help cover the cost of a masters level programme.
