Leadership in Training


COVID-19 Information


Delivering Effective Training is a course for Recognised/Approved medical trainers with at least a year’s experience in that role.  The course explores the positive role leadership skills can have on the interactions of the workplace culture, quality of patient care and the delivery of training.  The course also explores the importance of the trainer : trainee relationship, and trainees being valued, supported and treated as individuals.

1) Address challenges of delivering high-quality training which meets growing curriculum requirements in an increasingly pressured clinical environment.

2)  Understand the ways in which the workplace culture and learning environment can influence training delivery.

3) Become familiar with the attributes required for effective leadership within the educational context.
