Tori Page delivers a talk at Clinical Coach Congress 2019

Clinical Coaches left motivated and inspired by Clinical Coach Congress 2019


Our annual Clinical Coach Congress, held from 18-19 March 2019, was a huge success and saw over 80 clinical coaches come together to share ideas and listen to lectures on student veterinary nurse training!

Delegates left the event feeling inspired and motivated, commenting: “I took away lots of great ideas and feel very motivated from the course, not only, as a [clinical coach] but as a member of the team.”, “I feel motivated and inspired by the speakers and have lots of useful tips and further reading material.” and “I enjoyed the lectures and enthusiasm from the speakers and feel much more motivated as a clinical coach.”

Clinical Coach Congress 2019 moved to the wonderful East of England Arena and Events Centre in Peterborough. This year’s congress included lectures on teaching techniques, coaching styles, student motivation, professional accountability, exam techniques – and much more. A commercial exhibition was held throughout the congress, and day one of the event closed with the launch of VetSkill’s Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing (Companion Animal); giving delegates the perfect opportunity to learn more about the new qualification and network with fellow clinical coaches.

Plans for Clinical Coach Congress 2020 will soon be underway. If you would like to keep up-to-date with news on next year’s Clinical Coach Congress can register their interest at
