• Direct Observation of Procedural Skills

    ESCeL provides a tool within the Skills module that facilitates the execution of a Direct Observation of Procedural Skills (DOPS) which is an assessment by a trainee’s superiors of that trainee’s competence in the practical procedures that they undertake.

These reviews are typically conducted three times during a two-year course.
