Local Training Quality Leads

Focal point for dissemination of information to trainees and trainers within the Local Education Provider (LEP) environment.

Local Training Quality Leads work with teams across Scotland to ensure a cohesive approach to training provision and management across the Scotland Deanery area.

The Training Quality Lead is managerially accountable to the Director of Medical Education, whilst maintaining a strong communications link and close working relationship with the Regional Quality Management Group.

The Local Training Quality Lead provides an integral link between the NES Medical Directorate and NHS Boards. The post holders are managed by the DMEs, appointed via NHS Boards and funded by NES. The key importance of the Local Training Quality Lead is the effective delivery of NES' Educational Governance strategy.

The Local Training Quality Lead also acts as the focal point for timely and accurate collection of data for monitoring purposes.
