Educational Supervisor Training

Educational supervision involves overall supervision and management of a specified trainee’s educational progress during a programme (or series of periods of training), as opposed to a single period of training. Educational Supervisors are responsible for ensuring that trainees are making the necessary practice‐based and educational progress, through the use of appraisals and review meetings. The ability to effectively review a trainee’s entire portfolio may also be necessary, using a holistic approach, rather than assessing single pieces of evidence.

Roles and Responsibilities

The Educational Supervisor is responsible for the trainee’s Educational Agreement or plan, including formal assessment and sign off. They should have an understanding of the range of learning, assessment and support opportunities for learning in the workplace, work collaboratively with colleagues to monitor and support the trainee's progression and foster learner autonomy. They should also be able to identify and support trainees in difficulty, including interfacing with employment performance management procedures.


Pharmacy Tutor Training Days

The School of Medicines Optimisation and Faculty of Medicine and Health, University of Leeds, have developed a new event which is primarily for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians supporting pre-registration trainees, however it will be useful to tutors of all pharmacy trainees. The day comprises presentations and workshops designed to enable people to share ideas and experiences. The aims of the day are to familiarise pre-registration pharmacist tutors and trainers with the programme and their role and to provide a forum for tutors and trainers to share experiences, expertise and clarify issues relating to the programme.

Each day is identical, so you need only book onto one of the training days. We are waiting for venues to be confirmed for the dates below and will update this web page shortly. Further dates are to be scheduled. For more information about the content of each day please download the flyer. The training day is further supported by access to eLearning (see flyer for details).
