Excellence in Surgical Supervision (ESS)

This blended learning course, builds upon the legacy of TrACE (Training and Assessment in the Clinical Environment). ESS emphasises the importance of the supervision relationship and the skills that underpin excellent surgical supervision, training and assessment.

Excellence in Surgical Supervision is highly interactive, drawing on the experience of participants and focuses on practical guidance. It explores the key stages of the supervision journey, including learning agreements, workplace-based assessments, reports and an overview of ARCPs, as well as tools for managing both poor and excelling trainee performance.

Excellence in Surgical Supervision is mapped against the GMC Standards for the Recognition and Approval of Trainers and reviews the key features of the 2021 curriculum – Capabilities in Practice and the Generic Professional Capabilities framework.
