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.
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. For further information and to receive the application form please contact: email@example.com
