Part of HSST trainee induction 2020 – Webinar 1 – Training responsibilities and training planning

What are my employer’s and supervisor’s responsibilities?

Last Updated: 23rd September 2020

Employers should provide you with practical experiences to allow the achievement and maintenance of scientific, clinical and professional development.

There should be opportunities and support for you to develop clinical, practical skills and professional capabilities. You should have the opportunity for inter-professional multidisciplinary working.

Ideally, workplace supervisors should have the time and resources for supervision responsibilities allocated to them in their job plan. The principal responsibility of your workplace supervisor is to enable and support you to acquire the training and development experiences that you will need in order that you can have a varied range of workplace experiences that enable you to cover the activities required by the HSST curricula and the AHCS HSS Standards of Proficiency.

  • The National School holds an HSST Induction and Networking Day which supervisors can attend with you. This year the event is being held remotely via webinar, but supervisors should still be encouraged to attend.
  • Workplace supervisors should be informed by you when you will need to be at university, what you will be studying, when, and what your key deadlines are.
  • Workplace supervisors should be familiar with the curriculum (via the School’s Curriculum Library) and the HSS Standards of Proficiency.
