The Dudley Group follows the criteria for trainer recognition as set out by the GMC for the roles of named educational supervisor and named clinical supervisor.  The GMC uses the professional standards formulated by the Academy of Medical Educators (2014) and all named education supervisors and named clinical supervisors must provide evidence of their ongoing professional development against seven domains.

Dudley uses the Premier IT Revalidation ePortfolio (PReP) for collecting this evidence, plus one additional domain for equality and diversity.

The GMC defines an educational supervisor as;

“A trainer who is selected and appropriately trained to be responsible for the overall supervision and management of a specified trainee’s educational progress during a clinical training placement or series of placements.”

The domains that need to be met for Clinical and Education Supervisors are set out below:

4. Enhancing learning through assessment
5. Supporting and monitoring educational progressNot required
6. Guiding personal and professional developmentNot required
7. Continuing professional development as an educator

Thereafter, to maintain recognition as a trainer, senior doctors and consultants are required to participate in annual appraisal, which includes evidence of educational CPD. 

This would be demonstrated by:

  • one piece of evidence covering domain 7 (CPD) per annum, 
  • plus three other separate types of evidence in any five year period.
  • maintenance of Equality and Diversity Training every three years.



The Trainer Recognition date is set for a five year period by the GMC from date of recognition.
