Supervisor of Training Nomination Form
College trainees are required to have a nominated Supervisor during each non intensive care component of the training program.
The main assessment tool used by Supervisors is the In-Training Evaluation Report (ITER). The ITER is a valuable assessment tool that facilitates the ongoing education of trainees. At the end of each accredited period of training, Supervisors (in conjunction with their colleagues) are expected to submit a completed ITER to the College, providing evidence of the trainee’s progress towards developing basic level competencies in that speciality.

Supervisor of Training FAQs
Yes. The Supervisor must sign all applications in order for training to be accredited.
The Supervisor of Training is a designated representative in units accredited for training. The Supervisor provides liaison between trainees and both the hospital authorities (in respect of matters related to training) and the College.
The primary role of the Supervisor is to provide formative assessments (feedback via meetings, regular assessments and observations) and a summative assessment (feedback via the ITER) for each trainee.
Supervisors will also often act as mentors for the trainees and provide guidance on future training, employment and assist with any personal or professional issues.
Supervisors are strongly encouraged to familiarise themselves with the College process for dealing with trainees experiencing difficulty. The College training document named T-13 Guidelines for Assisting Trainees Identified as Requiring Additional Support outlines the appropriate steps.
The College also has designated staff to answer any direct queries from Supervisors and trainees regarding performance.
