Recognition of Trainers

Information for Appraisers

Information for appraisers

From mid-May 2015, trainers performing four 'named' roles, defined by the GMC, are required to complete an additional set of fields within SOAR to demonstrate that they meet the requirements for formal GMC recognition.

Trainers who are required to complete the recognition documentation will automatically have these fields made available to them and this element will be flagged up as mandatory. Other trainers who are not performing one of the four named roles may wish to go through the recognition process and can opt-in to complete the new elements voluntarily.

Please find below a letter from the Recognition of Trainers stakeholders group to all Appraisers with regards to the RoT processes and appraisal.  Should you have any further queries please visit or liaise with your Director of Medical Education. You can also contact the SOAR helpdesk and we will forward your queries on accordingly (
