Do you want to help trainees be the very best they can?


Recognising and Approving Trainers (GMC) requires T&O trainers to be “trained and calibrated” in workplace based assessments (WBA). More importantly, our trainees deserve the best training we can manage. After all someone took the trouble to train us.

Future dates:

Clinical supervisors need only attend the morning session, but assigned educational supervisors should attend the whole day. At the end of the programme, participants will be able to:

  • Engage in relevant aspects of the T&O curriculum
  • Maximise opportunities for teaching and assessing in T&O practice
  • Make the best use of T&O workplace based assessment tools
  • Provide constructive feedback relating to progress in practice
  • Identify trainees in difficulty and enlist appropriate help
  • Integrate an understanding of the T&O ARCP and examinations process

The programme will be facilitated by Lisa Hadfield-Law, the BOA educational advisor. Over the last 20 years, Lisa has trained over 10,000 T&O surgeons, from 65 countries within Europe, North America, Latin America, and Asia Pacific.

Pre-Programme planning:

You will be asked to complete a short piece of work prior to your course, using the BOA template here.

This will help us access:

  • Problems T&O trainers face
  • Skill levels at reflective writing

Course Fees:

We have made every attempt to keep the course fee to the minimum and will hold the programme at the BOA. The course fee is £69. Fees are due and payable at the time of registration. Please note that once a place is confirmed, there is a no-refund policy.
