Clinical supervision

Responses to the National Education and Training Survey 2018 under the theme of clinical supervision.

From the HEE Quality Framework, the expectation for the quality of your supervision is:

Learners receive educational and pastoral support to be able to demonstrate what is expected in their curriculum or professional standards to achieve the learning outcomes required.

HEE Quality teams will have a particular focus on clinical supervision as they carry out their quality assurance activities and interventions over the coming months, supporting placements to meet expected standards.
