Educational Supervisors Less Than Full Time Training Package

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has developed an e-learning session for Educational Supervisors of less than full time (LTFT) trainee doctors. The session aims to equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills to effectively supervise a LTFT trainee and raise awareness of the supervisors’ responsibilities. It highlights the importance of revalidation issues in LTFT trainees.

HEE is committed to improving Junior Doctors’ working lives and championing flexible working more broadly. With work/life balance highlighted as a mounting concern to doctors in training, and the risk of “burnout” affecting recruitment and retention in some specialties, the need for increased understanding and positive promotion of Less than Full Time Training is essential.

This learning package will complement any existing Educational/Clinical supervisor training. Trainers will be required to maintain trainer status and appraisal of their educator role may play a role in this. This package could form part of the evidence that trainers will need to collect in a revalidation cycle.
