Trainer Workshops/Trainer Group

Both the West and East training centres run regular group sessions for their GP trainers. These provide valuable opportunities for trainer development and for networking within the local training communities and ensure a regular platform for interaction between the programme and trainers.

The sessions are run by the trainers themselves ensuring an interesting and relevant mix of topics. There is an expectation that trainers will lead a trainer workshop at least once every 2 years as part of their personal development as a teacher/trainer. It is also an opportunity to receive peer appraisal of your group teaching skills.

Intending trainers and anyone considering a training role are very welcome to come along and meet the group.
