The Educator Role in SuppoRTT is to discuss with the Trainee how they can be supported when planning their leave and return, reviewing returns and applying for funding. At HEE we are reliant on the Experience and Knowledge of Educators to partake in and approve each bespoke plan and discuss with trainees what is available to best support their return.

We are currently in the process of procuring workshops to equip Educational Supervisors, College Tutors, Training Program Directors, GP Area Directors and Heads of Schools with Skills and Strategies to best support trainees who are returning to clinical practice following a period of absence. This will involve key attributes such as: Self-Awareness, Managing Trainees, Giving and Receiving feedback, Having courageous conversations, Mentoring and Coaching.
