Revalidation of the Clinical Educator Programme

Your Introductory Level, Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 certification is valid for 5 years after you complete it.

To maintain your CEP status you must revalidate every 5 years.  

We do not currently offer revalidation of the Introductory Level as we would anticipate that you would have moved on to at least Level 1 within the 5 years.

Completing revalidation involves:-

Level 1

●      attending the SEFCE Symposium or an equivalent (if you are not sure if we recognise the event you attended, just ask us ); and

●      Ensuring that your Equality & Diversity training is up to date (please send a copy of the certificate to cep@ed.ac.uk); and

●      attending an update session on your educational role, e.g.:

  • University of Edinburgh Faculty Development
  • Train the Trainers workshop
  • a CEP workshop of your choice

Level 2

●      attending the SEFCE Symposium or an equivalent (if you are not sure if we recognise the event you attended, just ask us ); and

●      Ensuring that your Equality & Diversity training is up to date (please send a copy of the certificate to cep@ed.ac.uk); and

●      having another teaching observation and feedback session; and

●      attending an update session on your educational role, e.g.:

  • University of Edinburgh Faculty Development
  • Train the Trainers Workshop
  • a CEP workshop of your choice

Level 3

●      attending the SEFCE Symposium or an equivalent (if you are not sure if we recognise the event you attended, just ask us); and

●     having an enhanced teaching observation and feedback session (see guidance) and completing self-reflection on your educational portfolio, which will form part of the discussion during this session; and

●      providing evidence of ongoing CPD in relation to teaching; and 

●      Ensuring that your Equality & Diversity training is up to date (please send a copy of the certificate to cep@ed.ac.uk); and

●      attending an update session on your educational role, e.g.:

  • University of Edinburgh Faculty Development

You should be collecting and recording evidence of the educational activities you have been involved in on an ongoing basis.

It may be helpful to have an understanding of the UK Professional Standards Framework, (UKPSF), as we use this for benchmarking good practice within teaching and learning.  The UKPSF can be found here:  https://www.heacademy.ac.uk/system/files/downloads/uk_professional_standards_framework.pdf.  For more description of each of the four values in the UKPSF, see pages 17-19 of this document: https://www.heacademy.ac.uk/system/files/downloads/ukpsf_dimensions_of_the_framework_0.pdf
