Educational Supervision


We use the Academy of Medical Educators Professional standards for medical, dental and veterinary educators (AoME 2014) as the criteria against which trainers in recognised roles must provide evidence of their ongoing professional development. Although these standards have been updated, we still use the 2014 version for approval and recognition of trainers.


The criteria comprise seven areas:

1.            Ensuring safe and effective patient care through training

2.            Establishing and maintaining an environment for learning

3.            Teaching and facilitating learning

4.            Enhancing learning through assessment

5.            Supporting and monitoring educational progress

6.            Guiding personal and professional development

7.            Continuing professional development as an educator.


The Peninsula and Severn Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) programme of training for both the named clinical supervisor and the named educational supervisor has been designed around both the GMC domains for trainers and Academy of Medical Educators Professional standards. Historically these have been established in different ways across the two Deaneries but were equivalent in both required training time and content to meet the GMC domains for trainers. The named clinical supervisor is the person responsible for writing the clinical supervisor’s report that is incorporated into the trainee’s educational supervisor report as part of the submission for the ARCP process. There are currently no Health Education England / GMC requirements for normal departmental clinical supervision.

Peninsula and Severn regions are now part of HEE-SW. As a consequence, we have aligned our supervisor training so it is consistent across Peninsula and Severn with the same training modules.

Educational Supervisors Update Day


The School runs an annual Educational Supervisors Update Day and we hope to confirm a date later in the year as a virtual/hybrid meeting.  Further information will appear on the website in due course.
