They also reference the Knowledge and Skills Framework (KSF) dimensions relevant to each area of responsibility.
Training professionals who are relatively new to training, including those who are supporting training on a temporary basis (e.g. on short-term contracts and secondments) and who have limited training experience.
Intended to support trainers by providing information on the skills and competencies they should already have or be working towards. This includes providing guidance to Junior Trainers who are planning to move into a training post.
To support more experienced trainers by providing information on the skills and competencies they should have or be working towards at this level.
The skills and competencies training managers should have or be working towards at this level. They provide guidance to Trainers and Senior Trainers who are planning to move into a training management post.
Training Manager Toolkit
A Training Manager Toolkit has been developed to support trainers who are looking at moving into a training manager role. The toolkit references useful resources (national and local) and is available to NHS trainers on the IT Training Professional online community.
If you are not already a member you will need to register with NHS Networks to access the toolkit, then request access to the group.
