Appraisal for revalidation

Trainee examiner

Appraisal for revalidation is a 1-day group workshop that focuses on the nature and purpose of appraisal and how this links directly to revalidation.

This workshop is particularly helpful for those who are relatively new to the appraisal and revalidation process. For more experienced appraisers, we offer a refresher Top-up for appraisal for revalidation package. Email for more details.

What will you learn?

During the day delegates will identify the supporting information and evidence that they will require for peer appraisal and have the opportunity to practise appraisal skills. As well as analysing and developing effective strategies for some of the challenges which may present during appraisal.

  • understand the nature and purpose of appraisal and the link with revalidation
  • provide feedback in ways in which a colleague can accept, and can act upon
  • help colleagues develop strategies and targets for continuing professional development
