Health Education England’s (HEE) Educator Hub is a new web-based, multi-professional collection of learning resources for clinical educators. As such it is suitable for healthcare science Training Officers and educators and supervisors of healthcare scientists, doctors, nurses, midwives, dentists, pharmacists and allied health professionals.
The content, which is hosted on the HEE e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) Hub, includes both academic and video-based practical modules, on topics such as supervision, feedback, workplace based assessments and Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP). These have been migrated from HEE Kent, Surrey, Sussex’s e-Training for Trainers (etft) platform together with London’s Multi-professional Faculty Development modules. Complementary content from other regions will also be included to produce a national resource.
Modules are linked to the new ‘Professional Development Framework for Educators’ which is being adopted in London and South East in the first instance. The framework domains map to professional regulatory standards for education and training including HEE’s Quality Framework standards and are applicable to all educators working in clinical practice and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) as guidance for best practice.
Professor Elizabeth Hughes, Dean and Director of Education, HEE, London and South East said: “The Educator Hub e-learning modules support the professional development of educators. They include formative and summative assessments followed by certification allowing the educator to demonstrate their learning”.
