Mission Statements

Faculty Development as part of FDLS

Faculty Development (FDLS) at NHS England (South West) is committed to organising and reviewing structured educational activities to support and complement the educational and professional development of Postgraduate medical trainers and trainees across the South West region, including S/AS doctors.

The two main streams are Faculty Development and Education.

Faculty Development

Our aim is to ensure that all trainers have sound educational and clinical supervisor training to fulfil core medical responsibilities in keeping with good medical practice and they feel skilled in supporting their trainees. Ensuring our trainers are trained and able to undertake their role is of high priority to us as an organisation and for the GMC as the regulator. We are proud that the South West is consistently rated highly in the annual GMC training survey. 

Faculty Development regularly updates training and events according to feedback and as part of its training needs analysis (TNA) every five years.

Education

Our aim is to provide postgraduate medical trainees with ongoing support in a wide range of educational and developmental CPD opportunities that lie outside their School Specialty curriculum, including Leadership Development, Quality Improvement, Professional & Generic Skills and Patient Safety.

Postgraduate Medical Education Course Catalogue

This booklet offers dedicated ladders of learning to help doctors plan their development in line with ten core strands. Each learning ladder generally starts with courses only available to Doctors in Training before heading to Supervisor only courses at the top of the learning ladders. Each course page displays who is eligible for the course. Where courses are available for both PG DiT and Supervisors, the courses are run separately for each cohort.

*To find available dates and to book onto a course, please visit our MaxCourse site.*
