Educational Supervision & Continued Professional Development

Please be advised the deadline has now passed for all Educational Supervision and Continued Professional Development claims relating to the 17/18 financial year (claim period ending 31st January 2018). These claims must be made in the financial year to which they relate and so we are now unable to make any backdated payments.

In relation to Educational Supervision Claims for the 18/19 financial year please see instructions below:

ES Payments

Please find the link on the right for an excel template which needs to be completed and sent to in order for you to make your claim. Please send this through to us as soon as possible for any educational supervision reviews relating to the 1st February 2018 – 31st July 2018 rotation. The Business Support team will then validate the information against E-Portfolio and send you a confirmation email with invoicing instructions along with templates to assist you.


If you have more than one Educational Supervisor who have completed reviews in the above period then please include all in your email. Please do not raise an invoice without completing the claim template and only then on receipt of a confirmation email from us to confirm the practices claim has been validated.


  • Educational Supervisors complete reviews for their trainees every six months. For those reviews which are completed whilst the trainee is in a hospital post a fee of £250 can be claimed.
  • The amount of payment is £250 per report which includes preparation work beforehand and with a commitment of keeping in touch with a trainee between reports.
  • Claim forms MUST be received within the correct financial year in order for them to be processed and paid
  • Claims should only be made for GP ST1/ST2 trainees based in another GP Practice to their ES or hospital training posts. ES payments are not applicable when supervising a trainee based in the same practice as the supervisor (in most cases an ST3) in this instance the reports will be covered by the trainers grant each practice receives.


 Instructions on how to claim for CPD will be advised in the second half of this financial year.
