Whilst we aim to move away from a 'tick-box' approach to trainer development, we understand that many trainers are apprehensive about the recognition process and would like some reassurance that they are prepared for initial recognition. We have created this short self-assessment questionnaire to help you determine whether you meet the criteria for initial recognition as a 'named trainer' in Scotland. You can work through the questions step-by-step, where you will be guided to support and resources, or jump straight to the recognition checklist at the end.
Note: GP trainers
The information in this section refers specifically to trainers working in secondary care or university settings who will require recognition for the first time under new GMC arrangements. GPs seeking formal trainer approval should continue to follow existing guidance.
