Education Programme & Quality Working Group Member
In order for the College education programme to become and remain a world leader, it has to continue to build on its status as a go-to trusted provider of up to date, quality educational information.
The Education Programme and Quality Working Group has been set up by the Education and Professional Development Committee to advise, steer, and improve the detailed elements of the College’s educational content and event programme. The group is made up of doctors from across all grades within the specialty in order to represent the diverse audiences the College’s education programme aims to attract.
Members will form part of a virtual group who will review event programmes and formats, suggest programme developments and improvements as well as provide quality assurance using key performance indicators (KPIs) and feedback to ensure the highest quality standards are enforced for all educational opportunities and content.
The Education Programme and Quality Working Group’s default position will be to deal with the business of the group via electronic communication and to reach decisions without face-to-face meetings.
Virtual group with three meetings a year – no travel required.
What do we require from you?
- To participate in the virtual group meetings – inputting ideas and suggestions on how the College can improve its education content.
