Based on our research and feedback from trainees and trainers, our guide offers practical ideas how to measure whether your own interventions are having an impact.

Fair training pathways

Education providers across the UK are working to tackle differential attainment and make sure training is fair for all doctors. To do this, they’re developing interventions. These can include everything from how training posts are allocated, to unconscious bias training for educators, to informal peer support or mentoring.

Our 2016 research identified that lots of work was underway locally to support trainees and improve outcomes, particularly for disadvantaged groups.

Evaluating the impact of differential attainment interventions

Very few of the interventions identified in Fair training pathways had been formally evaluated, so there was little evidence to show if they were effective.

In response, we commissioned Work Psychology Group – a research consultancy which develops insight driven, practical tools  to undertake research and develop resources to help those designing interventions to evaluate them.
