Recognition and Approval of Trainers

In order to receive Medical ACT funding LEPs are required to comply with all aspects of the GMC requirements on the Recognition and Approval of Trainers in respect of 4 named roles.

In Scotland all EOs (NES and the 5 medical schools) have joined together to develop an integrated approach to trainer recognition using Turas the Scottish Training management system and SOAR the Scottish online appraisal resource.

All trainers require to be recognised by 31 July 2016 and from that date all newly appointed trainers to any of the four named roles will require to be recognised before appointment.

The Scottish Trainers Framework provides access to relevant guidance on the GMC trainer competences and products for trainers.
