Support for Trainers
It has been identified that given the increased responsibilities of all Trainers, the role of Lead Trainer within Colposcopy units is less well defined and in some areas there may be no 'lead' present. The time has come, therefore, for a review to provide more comprehensive back-up for Trainers.
There is agreement that the Regional Representatives of the BSCCP can be referred to by any trainer who feels that there are issues/or questions relating to trainees for which external advice is needed in their particular region. In future the role of a BSCCP Regional Representative would attract those with educational supervisor skills, although this qualification is not considered essential.
