GTPD & FRT Conference – 9 December 2021, online


  • Teaching, Apraisal & Assessment

Join us at our latest GTPD and FRT Conference, taking place online (via Zoom) on Thursday, 9 December.

Free to attend for GTPDs/FRTs, our half-day virtual event will focus on how to help prepare your candidates for a variety of assessments. Based on feedback from you, our trainers, we’ll cover three key areas:

  • Getting ready for our Online Theory Assessment (OTA) – gain a better understanding of your role as an FRT; the different DFSRH / LoC study routes; and how you can best support your candidates

  • Conversations with your candidates – find out how to have more impactful conversations with your candidates when helping them prepare for assessments

  • Running an effective Assessment Half-Day (AHD) – hear directly from Lead Assessors already running AHDs; plus an overview of AHD tutorials designed for you as a trainer.

You’ll also have the opportunity to network virtually with each other and share best practice with your peers.

Share your questions

We will aim to answer your questions on preparing candidates for assessment during this session. You can pre-submit questions when you register, as well as ask questions on-the-day.
