3-Step GP Trainer Journey

3-Step GP Trainer Journey


To support the ongoing expansion of GP Training and the Primary Care Workforce, the NW School of General Practice (in conjunction with the NW Training Hubs) has developed a new GP Trainer Journey. This is a 3-step pathway that will allow GPs to develop their educational skills to their preferred level.

The 3 steps of the GP Trainer journey are:

  • Step 1 – Wider Workforce Course (Previously Foundation Supervisor Course)
  • Step 2 – GPST Clinical Supervisor
  • Step 3 – GPST Educational Supervisor
  • Please select HERE  for frequently asked questions in relation to these courses. 

Please see attached details on how to register for the Wider Worforce Course.

We will be running all courses on an ongoing basis and will advertise further dates accordingly. If you have any questions regarding any of the courses, please contact us at england.gptraining.nw@nhs.net.

Prior to the course you will be required to complete the accreditation paperwork and successfully complete a virtual practice visit from an Associate Dean or Lead Educator. Accreditation paperwork will be provided on the Sharepoint site provided to complete the course.

If you are not based in an approved Learning Environment, you will need to undergo a Unified Learning Environment Approval with your local Training Hub and Associate Dean. Further information regarding this can be found on our web page below:
