This is a BOA course being run for local attendees in partnership with the NHS Trust(s) in the area. It is available only to those invited by the Trust. 

V-TOES Stanmore

We have fully updated our training for educational supervisors to help you prepare for the new curriculum in 2021 and learn how to supervise trainees to be the very best they can be.

Whilst face-to-face programmes have been suspended, the BOA has created the V-TOES programme run entirely on line. V-TOES Stanmore participants should register for the course through the ‘Book now’ link on this page (on right hand side on PC or below on most mobile devices). You will only have access to the course material when you are confirmed on the course through booking.

Regional courses will cover high numbers of participants on each programme, with TPDs and College tutors joining as faculty. The new curriculum will require more collaboration between departments within deaneries and the BOA Regional V-TOES courses will be supporting this. These courses are being delivered as part of a BOA-led national strategy to support implementation of the new curriculum – this commenced in December 2019 and will be delivered in those regions where requested and organised by the TPD (check with the TPD for your region if you aren’t sure).

No more box ticking and number crunching. Life for you, as a trainer should be better and richer from August 2021. All the curriculum work over the last 3 years is coming to fruition.  It will address concerns expressed by many trainers about the over refined structure of ISCP: of tick boxes and forms. Our trainees need to acquire professional judgement, insight, leadership, and the ability to work with others, alongside the operative skills required to be a safe surgeon. The new updated curriculum should help us do this more effectively.  This 9 hour V-TOES programme is designed to help Educational Supervisors make the necessary changes work for them and their trainees.

Please note that we would expect for all V-TOES Stanmore participants to have completed the Regional V-TOES course by 1st December 2020
