The Authority is seeking tenders from specialists in the provision of training courses for Educational and Clinical Supervisors hereafter referred to as ‘Trainers’. The GMC uses the Academy of Medical Educators’ Professional standards for medical, dental and veterinary educators (2014) as the criteria against which all trainers in recognised roles must provide evidence of their ongoing professional development. Although these standards have since been updated, the GMC still use the 2014 edition for approval and recognition of trainers. The criteria comprise seven 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. Each training day should provide learning in all the above domains suitable to be recognised as a trainer by the GMC.
