Clinical Coding Trainer Assessment Day

Purpose

The Clinical Coding Trainer Assessment Day ensures only competent, experienced and accredited clinical coders are admitted onto the Clinical Coding Trainer Programme (CCTP).

The Assessment Day aims to:

  • give applicants the second step towards demonstrating that they have the skills and knowledge to become an Approved Clinical Coding Trainer.
  • provide an opportunity for applicants to network with potential Approved Clinical Coding Trainers from other organisations.

What do I need to know?

We have scheduled the CCTP Assessment Days and Train the Trainer Course as ‘classroom only’ events. We have considered the possibility of, and in some cases trialled, alternative facilitation methods, but due to the nature of these events, this is not possible without compromising their integrity and effectiveness.

Successful attendees on the CCTP Assessment Day will automatically secure a place on the Clinical Coding Train the Trainer Course. Course places will be confirmed via email from our helpdesk.

The Assessment Day costs are absorbed into the full Trainer Programme. If you are successful in progressing to the Clinical Coding Train the Trainer Course, you will not be charged for the Assessment Day and will only need to pay for the Train the Trainer event.

Please note that anyone applying for the 2021-22 Clinical Coding Auditor Programme (CCAP) or Clinical Coding Trainer Programme (CCTP) should ensure that - where a Purchase Order (PO) is being obtained - this is attached with the application documents, rather than emailed to information.standards@nhs.net separately by the organisation’s Finance or Procurement department.

We are unable to process applications for programmes where the PO is not included within the application documents. In such circumstances, we will have no option but to reject the application, pending re-submission with the PO. Where demand for Programmes is high, this may result in applicants failing to secure a place.

Following cancellation of the Clinical Coding Trainer Programme (CCTP) Assessment Day in 2020-21 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all people who successfully applied for the 2020-21 Assessment Days are being carried over to 2021-22, without needing to re-apply. This means that there are limited remaining places available on the CCTP Assessment Day. Places will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis to those applicants who successfully submit complete application documentation.

Applications for any of the original applicants now overdue their Clinical Coding Standards Refresher Course (CCSRC) training will still stand; however, you are advised to book onto a course as soon as possible in 2021/22. For information about trainers who have our permission to deliver CCSRC training remotely, please contact information.standards@nhs.net.

How can I apply?

Find out how to apply for the Clinical Coding Trainer Programme Assessment Day in the  Clinical Coding Trainer Programme Handbook. The 2021-22 Handbooks will be released on Delen on 1 April 2021 and candidates will then need to refer to the updated Handbooks when preparing / studying for the Assessment Day itself, although we anticipate that any changes to their content will be minimal.
