JAG strongly recommends that all trainers meet appropriate key performance indicators, complete a trainer the trainer course, receive regular feedback and are supported in their role.
To be JAG accredited, a service must meet the requirements set-out in the GRS. Standard 18. Trainer allocation and skills sets out requirements for trainers.
The key requirements to become a trainer are below:
|18.7||All trainers supervising dedicated training lists have attended (or are supported to attend) a JAG approved TTT course.||B||This standard supports the principle that all trainers should maintain and develop their training skills.|
|18.8||All trainers supervising dedicated training lists have maintained and updated trainer skills relevant to the procedures for which they act as a trainer within the revalidation cycle.||B||
This standard supports the principle that all trainers should maintain and develop their training skills. Completion of one or more of the following can be used as evidence of having met this measure:
1. By review with the local training lead of their trainee feedback showing acceptable performance.
2. By providing evidence of participation in and JETS feedback from Faculty involvement on a JAG approved Endoscopy training course.
3. If a TTT/TET/TCT/TGT style course has been performed within the revalidation cycle.
4. If there is evidence of a formal Medical Education qualification - e.g. PCME, Diploma or MSc level course.
5. Deanery related trainer skills course that may be transferable to Endoscopy practice (and which has been validated for CPD points).
This is not a comprehensive list.
It is at the discretion of the service leadership team as to who can act as an endoscopy trainer, but to be accredited a service must demonstrate meeting the GRS and accreditation standards.
