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 – Foundation Supervisor
  • Step 2 – GPST Clinical Supervisor
  • Step 3 – GPST Educational Supervisor
  • The GP Trainer Journey document also includes information about other courses you may be interested in, including the Wider Workforce Clinical Supervisor Course facilitated by the Training Hubs.

Please click here for an overview of the GP Trainer Journey, along with information regarding upcoming course dates, course objectives and eligibility criteria.

You will notice that some of the courses running in the coming months are already full because we are currently transitioning to the new 3-step model. We will be running all courses on an ongoing basis and will advertise further dates accordingly, however please use the relevant contact details provided to register your interest in any of the courses listed.

Please note that if you are booked onto the Basic Trainers Course (BTC) starting in October, you will not need to have completed the other stages described, however future BTC applicants will.

If you have questions regarding any of the courses, please use the relevant contact details provided on the attached.
