This course is intended to enable members of the Dental team to develop skills in effective facilitation of learning within and outside the workplace, so that they can support the professional development of students and other staff within their profession. The North Western Postgraduate Dental Deanery has been involved in the development of the course so that it offers General Dental Practitioners core training to fulfil the role of Foundation Year Educational Supervisors and acts as verifiable CPD in line with GDC requirements. The course is mapped into COPDEND Standards for Dental Educators (2013). This course is also an opportunity for other members of the Dental team who are able to study at level 7. On successful achievement of this course, students can apply for membership with the Academy of Medical Educators.
