Improving Appraisal Conversations: Coaching GROW model

Improving Appraisal Conversations: Coaching GROW model

This workshop is part of the NES Refresher programme of activities and offered to experienced appraisers who have completed formal medical appraiser training and appraising for at least a year.

As part of the NES Refresher Appraiser programme of activities to supporting the medical appraiser workforce, NES has teamed up with the Academy of Executive Coaching and organised a few one-day training events on use of coaching skills for interested appraisers.

This training, which includes practice sessions, aims to give appraisers an introduction to the GROW model.  By the end of the workshop, the participants should have some familiarity with this model of coaching and have gained confidence in using the required skills in an appraisal setting.

This is an interactive, experiential training day; and the expectation is that you will be in a private, confidential space without interruptions, and without needing to attend to emerging work situations.

For your own learning experience as well as your fellow appraisers, please consider another training date if you are unable to commit to this full day, delivered virtually via Zoom.

Please be advised that there will be a small amount of pre-course work involved prior to attending the training.

It is important to note that the training day is NOT intended to train appraisers to becoming coaches, but rather giving appraisers an opportunity to learn a different skill that they can use in an appraisal setting.

Application process:

This half-day session is part of the NES Refresher Appraiser programme of activities, and as such places are only offered to Medical Appraisers working in Scotland.  To apply please complete the below form:
