I want to be a Primary Care Educator

We are encouraging GPs and health professionals in Newham to become educators and trainers and join our supportive Primary Care Educator community.

If you are in another area you can also use this page for information and contact your local trainers workshop if you need more help or advice about being a primary care educator.

There is now also a multi-professional option to becoming a clinical supervisor as well as the route for GPs to become educational supervisors (GP trainers/ Primary care educators)

If you are interested in becoming a Clinical Supervisor or GP educator (Educational Supervisor role).
Ideally you should be at least 2 years post CCT.

Once you have confirmation of acceptance on to the GP trainer course you are expected to the join your local trainers workshop and start attending by the time the course starts.   Contact admin@newhamgpvts.org.uk with your course start date so that you can be added to the trainers workshop email group and start to receive your invitations to the trainer workshops.

Newham Trainers workshops are held every other month (odd numbered months). They are generally on the 2nd Thursday on that month but please refer to the workshop timetable which would have been sent to all trainers or calendar for the dates.

The workshops are held to support local Newham trainers and provide a peer group meeting to discuss issues that relate to training and training practices. All trainers should be added to the mailing list to be kept informed of any updates and upcoming meetings. They are a mix of online Teams meetings and face to face.

Trainers are encouraged to contribute actively and run some of the workshops. We occasionally run joint workshops with ST3 trainees and with multi-professional colleagues through Newham Training Hub.

We have a mix of very experienced trainers and new trainers which provides a great environment for shared learning.
