“A strong sense of organisational values, embedded throughout the organisation, can provide the foundations for clinical workers engagement; With trusts coming under growing pressure, engaging all healthcare workers in decision-making and innovation will become increasingly important. Even with good clinical practice we can always look at how we can do things better.”


Ian Abbs

Our Educational & Clinical Supervision has merged in to one session and will now cover you for Educational & Clinical Supervision. Our merged sessions will also cover you if you are looking for a Refresher session.

In 2014 Health Education England introduced its new Professional Development Framework

The Professional Development Framework for Supervisors in London provides a basis for the selection and accreditation of those involved in postgraduate medical education who are working in London’s network of Local Education Providers. It formally applies to named educational and named clinical supervisors working in London Trusts.

The framework applies to all Consultants and sets out seven developmental 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

A Clinical Supervisor has day-to-day oversight of trainees in the workplace. Clinical supervision involves being available, looking over the shoulder of the trainee, teaching on the job with developmental conversations, regular feedback and the provision of a rapid response to issues as they arise.

Educational supervision relates to the oversight of a trainee’s progress over time. Educational supervisors are responsible for ensuring that trainees are making the necessary clinical and educational progress
