Locality Clinical Supervisors in Training Hubs – ‘Train the Trainer’
In March, we held two face to face ‘Train the Trainer’ sessions in Leeds and London for hub colleagues. The format was well received and of course would normally be our preferred option for future sessions. However, we are now proposing to hold three one day ‘virtual’ sessions for those who have not yet completed this training. The objectives of the training remains the same (see below) but we have made adaptations for virtual delivery.

Training Event:
Supporting Clinical Supervision for Locality Clinical Supervisors Relevant for: Practice educators, locality lead nurses, HEE funded Training Hubs, CCGs & Other AHPs
This two-day training event will enable you to further reflect on and develop your knowledge and skills necessary to your role as a locality clinical supervisor and look toward the training of workplace clinical supervisors

Learning Outcomes:

• Have an increased knowledge and understanding of Clinical Supervision, linking and developing the theory into practice
• Differentiate between Clinical Supervision and line/performance management and between Clinical Supervision and teaching
• Negotiate Clinical Supervision contracts, governance and structural processes, accordingly, taking in to account individual learning styles
• Develop further your reflective interpersonal and supervisory skills such as: reflective practice; giving guidance, joint problem solving, and offering feedback to enable the development of effective supervisory relationships.
KSF Dimensions:
Relevant to all 6 Core Dimensions and levels 1-4
Sessions will be held on:
1000-1600 Friday 25th September 2020
1000-1600 Friday 2nd October 2020
1000-1600 Friday 9th October 2020
Hub colleagues destined to deliver workplace supervisor training can book the training here:
Numbers are limited to 25 places per session and ideally, we would prefer no more than two colleagues per training hub. If you have previously undertaken the training face to face, there is no need to repeat the training.
Implementation Support
After the training is complete, support for implementation of workplace supervisor training and the use of the core model of supervision for multi professionals will be in place from October to the end December 2020.

Core Model of Supervision for Multi Professionals
During 19/20, we worked with colleagues at HEE and other stakeholders to bring together a ‘Core Supervision Model for Multi Professional Teams’. Although, supported by the General Practice Nursing Ten Point Plan (GPN10PP), the design has been with multi professionals working across the healthcare system in mind. The main objective of the core model is to avoid revisiting the most effective model debate by providing a solid consistent basis, where good quality supervision can progress. Specialist advice and guidance about the supervision of specific roles can be added to the core model.This and supporting resources has now been fully published on the ‘GPN Single Point’ (a Future NHS Workspace) and can be accessed here:

Financial support for General Practice Nurse (GPN) workplace supervisor training
Our ambition, over time, is to establish a GPN supervisor in every PCN. We understand that there are current challenges on the Primary Care workforce regarding to both available time for training and operational workload.
Rather than set a fixed target to the hub network, we are keen to see those who are interested in delivering GPN workplace supervisor training in 20/21 initially express their interest via no later than Friday 25th September.

Further discussions will then take place individually regarding delivery and finance.

Yours sincerely
