Face to Face teaching and practical session for Trainee Sample Takers

The Fire Fighters Charity, Harcombe House, Newton Abbot TQ13 0DG

The aim of this course is to assist Cervical Sample Taker Trainees to maintain high standards of sample taking in accordance with local and national standards. The guidance was updated in 2020 and our initial training sessions include the following:

 

  • The NHS Cervical Screening Programme
  • The background to cervical screening
  • Organisation of the NHS Cervical Screening Programme
  • Equality of access to cervical screening
  • Understanding the test results
  • Anatomy and physiology of the pelvic organs
  • Practical aspects and professional responsibilities of taking cervical samples

 

Trainees will receive initial theory and practical training with our Clinical Educators before completing the rest of the programme by undertaking supported procedures in practice with their Mentor.  The whole programme can take up to 6 months to complete, but can take as little as 6 weeks if there are sufficient appointments available to the Trainee.

Learning and Development Centre provides a detailed programme of work to follow, a Training Portfolio and Training Handbook, and professional support for Sample Taker Trainees and their Mentors throughout the programme. When the Trainee Sample Taker has completed the programme we allocate an independent External Assessor to liaise with the Trainee and complete a Final Clinical Assessment.

Our team consists of:

– Julie Frost – Clinical Educator

– Heather Taylor – Clinical Educator

– Pauline Bird – Clinical Educator

– Stephanie Hawkes – Cervical Sample Taker Training Administrator

Please be aware that there is information required from Trainees, Practice Managers and Mentors that must be submitted prior to the Trainee attending the first training session. 

A Mentor for each Trainee must be nominated and available to attend the virtual Mentor Introduction.  This is a requirement of the programme and Trainees cannot begin practical elements in practice if this has not been completed.
