This course aims to meet the changing needs of surgical educators and to incorporate the latest developments in education.

It comprises of three components; two of which are delivered via e-learning approximately one month either side of the two face-to-face days. These additional components will help you gain the maximum benefit from the contact days, deepening your understanding of how adults learn and enabling you to plan, develop, deliver and evaluate training more effectively. Aimed at anyone involved in the delivery of surgical training, whether this be locally or as a member of faculty on RCS courses, Training the Trainers aims to build on participant's knowledge of teaching and learning to improve their current practice.
