Welcome to our Educators in Primary Care information page

In this section you will find details of resources available for those supervising learners in primary care.  Whether you are a clinical pharmacist supervising a pre-registration student, a practice nurse providing workplace supervision to a physician associate, or a GP wanting to supervise a specialty GP trainee, this site will provide you with information and resources available to you in your supervisory role.  Our resources are applicable to those who are providing uni-professional and inter-professional supervision.

For GPs wishing to supervise trainees in general practice, there are formal approval processes that need to be undertaken.  We have therefore produced the Pathway to becoming a GP educator in primary care guidance, to provide further information for GPs.  This can be found in the downloads section on the right, along with a FAQs as a quick guide.

Supervisor courses available are outlined in the tables below.  Click on the course link to access further information.

If you would like to undertake online learning, then you can access over 30 individual short modules on our Educator Hub.
