The Leonardo EURACT level 3 programme is designed to help develop proficient educators to the level of the educational expert, with the capability of developing their own educational expertise and providing skills training for future GP teachers. Those who progress to this highest level will be tasked with maintaining a European teaching skills programme, and ensuring that it is cascaded beyond the original partner organizations to other European countries. During the programme participants work with their peers from other European countries and gain an understanding of the advantages of such a common European approach. Programme members need the support of an academic institution and an identified education supervisor who should be prepared to support the activity of participating doctors through reviewing and criticizing their work, providing feedback, advice and support
The programme is structured in the same way as a Masters module, with the majority of the time spent in self-directed study, with three days course work split into two sessions. The pre-course work includes development of a Personal Development Plan as a teacher, discussed with the supervisor. Then Study1 day focuses i.a. on small group work to identify concrete plans for the project. Personal work between study days includes i.a. preparing concrete plans for educational intervention as well as course materials, including a literature review. Afterwards, Study Days 2-3 take place with small group work on developing an educational framework, preparing finite plans for delivery of individual modules revised as necessary, developing a network. Final step is delivering the course and submitting a written report of the whole process.
