Tier 2 and Tier 3 Virtual COURSES FOR CLINICIANS IN THE EAST OF ENGLAND

Please note:

There is no need for Educators to attend two courses, you should only attend a course relevant to your current role and experience. Educational Supervisors should only attend Tier 3 training. If you have got relevant experience and are about to start your role as Educational Supervisor you do not need to attend Tier 2 training, there is no need to complete each Tier; educators start as the most appropriate tier for you.

When booking on a date you must be able to attend all dates and not swap between courses. If any webinars are missed you can watch the webinar recording.
