Supervisor of Training Workshops 2017

The College has announced the dates for the 2017 Supervisor of Training Workshops in Australia and New Zealand. Facilitated by Dr Bronwyn Avard and A/Prof Bruce Lister, the workshop will include sessions on providing feedback and remediation techniques for poorly performing trainees. A final version of the program will be released shortly.  

Feedback from the 2016 workshops was very positive with role playing, interactive discussions, and the Q&A sessions being well received. The workshops were also a valuable networking tool for Supervisors (especially those from rural areas) and also provided an opportunity for discussions about the current curriculum.

Dates and locations for the workshops are as follows:
Brisbane... Thursday 27 April 2017
Auckland... Thursday 3 August 2017
Melbourne.. Friday 1 December 2017

If you would like to register for any of the dates listed above, please click this link and follow the prompts.

If you are a CICM Supervisor who lives outside of one of the above regions, the College will provide a return economy airfare and a nights’ accommodation if required. 

Please note that as a Supervisor, it is expected you attend one of the workshops as this is an opportunity for you to not only learn new skills/techniques, but also to network with Supervisors from other regions. Supervisors can also claim CPD points for these workshops.
