EXISTING FOUNDATION SUPERVISORS

 

If you are currently a Foundation Supervisor and are applying for reaccreditation, the appropriate forms are below.  The FY2 Supervisor reaccreditation / appraisal form is the main form to fill in and return to the GP Programme Administrator prior to the first year meeting or reaccreditation panel.  This captures mandatory declarations, updates details of the practice, records supervisor activity, supervisor PDP and reflections of teaching and assessment since the last review.  The form should be completed and returned to the GP Programme Administrator who is coordinating the visit/panel  at least two weeks in advance of the visit/panel.

Foundation Reaccreditation & Appraisal Form 

 

Each approved Foundation Supervisor will have a review at 12 months or following three F2 trainees.  Further re-accreditation will then be agreed at this meeting.

 

We would encourage you to progress from a F2 trainer to a GP trainee supervision as outlines in the trainer journey above.

 

The trainee feedback on GP Foundation Attachment form is to use to facilitate gathering feedback from your trainees about their experience of the GP attachment.  The hope is that this can be used with each trainee as they come to the end of the attachment to provide the practice with ongoing formative feedback.  These forms can then be included as evidence for the foundation supervisor re-approval visit or reaccreditation panel.  It may provide ideas for ongoing development of these placements.  If the trainee does not want any aspect of the feedback to be shared with the supervisor this should be clearly indicated on the form and emailed directly to the GP Programme Administrator.
