AaE: Educational Supervision

Course Overview
Anaesthetists as Educators: Educational Supervision is a one day course on educational supervision, consisting of talks covering the governance of education, revalidation of trainees and trainers and workshops on effective educational supervision, SUIs, doctors in difficulty, feedback and assessment.

The workshops will give participants time to discuss the problems and challenges of educational supervision in anaesthesia in the context of the current climate and help them increase the effectiveness of the educational supervision they provide.

It is suitable for all educational supervisors, especially those that want an update for revalidation.

The RCoA Anaesthetists as Educators Programme can support trainers in meeting the requirements for GMC Recognition and Approval of Trainers. The course content is mapped to the GMC’s seven domains and participation in this course will provide supporting evidence towards the GMC approval process for named educational supervisors and named clinical supervisors.

See GMC Recognition and Approval of Trainers for more information.

Anaesthetists as Educators Course Articles


A series of articles designed to complement the RCoA Anaesthetists as Educators courses. The articles cover key educational topics relevant to teaching and learning within the context of clinical anaesthesia. However, each article is written from the perspective of the ‘developing educator’ and it is hoped that any grade or level of anaesthetist could make use of the material and find it both stimulating and challenging.


The purpose of this series is about developing yourself as an effective clinical educator equipped with the necessary toolkit that will enable you to meet, and evidence, your own professional development in relation to Postgraduate Medical Education in the UK, as defined by the GMC.
