Workplace-Based Assessments

About this guide

The purpose of this brief guide is to help you facilitate workshops on workplace-based assessments. The guide contains essential materials you may need to deliver a workshop. The course objectives are specified and aligned to the activities provided. Slide sets and programmes are included to enable minimal preparation time. Reading lists and support activities are provided. The slides and notes however should be regarded as suggested approaches to the course and to sessions. After reviewing the guide, or possibly after having run several courses using the guide, you may decide not to use some of material or suggested activities and develop your own approach instead.

Why have guides been developed?

As Lead and Local Education Providers take on greater responsible for offering appropriate support, development, and monitoring of clinical and educational supervisors, the guides have been developed to enable courses to be offered locally that can help supervisors meet the requirements of the London Deanery Professional Development Framework for Supervisor.

Who are the guides for?

The guides for facilitators are designed to be useful for all those involved in leading faculty development sessions for consultant colleagues and senior trainees. Facilitators may be existing Deanery educators and clinical educators, local clinical educators with experience of faculty development facilitation, and/ or senior nurse educators and external educators with experience of working with clinical teachers.
