An accreditor training session is run each year for both new and existing colleagues. Our accreditors are encouraged to attend at least one training session every three years to ensure they are
kept up to speed with the latest developments and standards. The workshop format is a mix of presentations, interactive group work giving participants the chance to run through a hypothetical
accreditation event and an open forum discussion.
In what is now known as the 'Accreditor Day', the first hour of the day is dedicated to training new accreditors and then the rest of the agenda is opened up to anyone who has an interest in
sonographic education, whether they are an accreditor, course leader or someone else within the profession. Everyone is welcome to attend!
CASE Training Lead, Gill Harrison, has provided the following update regarding this year's event:
Health Education England are working with CASE, and several professional
bodies and ultrasound groups, such as BMUS and the Society and College of Radiographers, on developing a career structure for ultrasound. In addition to this work, the apprenticeship standards are
being developed for ultrasound education and advanced clinical practice. As part of these work steams there are going to be changes to ultrasound education. CASE committee members are looking at this
work and amending their processes for accreditation. Rather than have the regular autumn training day for CASE accreditors and interested parties this year, we plan to move it to spring 2019, to
ensure that the training is relevant to the future needs of accreditors.
In the meantime, if you want information about the current accreditor
training there are on-line resources available below and from the left-hand menu.
If you want additional support or advice prior to the spring training
event, please contact Gill Harrison at G.Harrison@city.ac.uk
