This suite of courses is for staff and teams who wish to become simulation faculty. The programme runs over a 6 month cycle and is run 4 times a year. It consists of 3 essential courses and 4 further courses which are for those looking to become advanced faculty or those with specialist interests. The 3 essential courses must be completed with 12 months from starting the programme. The 4 higher level courses should be completed within 24 months of starting the programme.
In addition to these formal training opportunities faculty are required to take part in a programme of reflective practise and episodes of debrief of their debrief. For those on the expert programme as well as the courses offered there is a set of requirements in research and debriefing. Further details of the additional requirements for all programmes are available once an individual is enrolled in the programme.

Continuing Professional Development
The Simulation and Interactive Learning (SaIL) Centre are proud to offer this internationally recognised, four-day intensive simulation educator course, delivered in partnership with the Boston USA based, Center for Medical Simulation (CMS). This course is being offered for the first time in the UK at the award-winning SaIL Centre in the heart of central London overlooking the Houses of Parliament. The course will be delivered by internationally recognised expert faculty from CMS and the SaIL Centre.
The course gives a comprehensive overview of the skills needed by simulation educators at all levels and uses a combination of immersive simulation, large group lectures, large and small group discussion, and focused small group tutorial support. The course includes designing, planning, and running effective simulation, as well as conducting debriefing. Further, the course allows participants to network with and learn from colleagues, while practicing their skills with some of the most well-respected simulation faculty in the world.
The course offers value for all levels of simulation educators: novice learners will have the chance to explore all aspects of simulation education; while more advanced educators have an opportunity to learn Debriefing with Good Judgment from the experts in the field.
Key topics on this course include:
- Building a safe learning environment
- Exploring new debriefing skills
- Advancing simulation within your organisation
- Exploring teamwork and crisis resource management
- Behavioural and educational research
- Teaching clinical, behavioural and cognitive skills through simulation
