1. Internal Verification Visits:

  • These visits involve the CC and student and should last no more than 1.5hr. These cover quality control, NPL support and guidance, practice monitoring and support and adhoc issues. Two visits take place throughout the year and are arranged between our IV team and the practice.

2. Clinical Coach Workshops / Standardisation:

  • Three meetings are free to all clinical coaches working with BGT. Active CC are required to attend at least one a year, meetings last no longer than 2hrs and cover updates from C&G, RCVS and QCA, feedback from IV visits, NPL reviews, blended learning tasks and selected units and trainer standardisation support.
  • CC Training is also available, please contact the office for more info and dates.

3. NPL Reviews:

  • All student NPL’s are reviewed regularly by our lead IV to ensure standardised support. The evidence is sampled according to BGT’s sampling plan and incorporates completed blended learning tasks. This plan is generated from information acquired following the IV visits. Essentially we are verifying the evidence collected by students to demonstrate competency.
  • The IV will sample elements of the NPL during support visits.
  • A final check is carried out on completion of the NPL with a report generated.

4. Telephone / Email Support:

  • An intrinsic part of BGTs success is the level of support provided. It is important that queries are dealt with promptly on a daily basis and access is direct and personal.

5. Student Enrolment:

  • Following receipt of enrolment documentation and payment, BGT will ensure that all students are enrolled with the awarding and regulatory body.
