The GP Educator Pathway 

There are a variety of ways you can be involved in education in Primary Care. You can host doctors working in the Foundation Programme as well as becoming a GP trainer.

To take either of these roles you need to enrol on our GP Educator Pathway.

From September 2011 any doctor wishing to become a GP trainer, who has not already enrolled and attended at least one of the GP Educator Pathway Modules will  need to undertake a Postgraduate Certificate in Strategic Leadership and Multi-professional Education in Healthcare which KSS has developed with the University of Kent.

Below is a brief outline of the GP Educator Pathway:

Becoming a Foundation Year 2 Clinical Supervisor (FY2CS):

  • As a FY2CS you host doctors in their second year of Foundation training (the first year after GMC registration) for a 4 month period.

In order to apply to become  a FY2CS you need to undertake a 2 day teaching module (Module 1) and your practice needs to be assessed as suitable by a member of the HEE KSS GP School team (if it is not a training practice).

Training for this role takes place on a 5 day module (Module 2) providing you have successfully completed Module1. You must also have MRCGP.

 To become a GP trainer  you will need to have MRCGP and have completed module 1 and 2.

  • You will also have had direct responsibility for a trainee and ideally also hosted an FY2 doctor in your practice.
  • Your practice will also need to be accredited as a training practice by a GP Patch Associate Dean and you will need to have shown how you have begun to develop your skills and competencies as a GP educator through the development of a portfolio.
