The Laparoscopic Colorectal Train the Trainers Course (LAPCO TT) develops effective coaching skills for laparoscopic colorectal surgery. The course is adapted from the JAG approved Training the Trainers for Flexible Endoscopy but focuses on the specific needs of laparoscopic colorectal surgery.

The LAPCO TT course is based on a two-day programme. The first provides interactivity and practical coaching rehearsal in a skills lab setting. The second day focuses on clinical coaching in the operative environment. Coaching skills are taught in an interactive discussion and are then assembled to enable situational training for surgeons.


The course provides the necessary tools to improve individuals as trainers through adopting suitable coaching styles.

This course is not intended to teach LAPCO skills, although you may benefit from discussing different methods and approaches.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand principles of how adults acquire and retain skills
  • Critically review a training episode
  • Understand the concept of conscious competence in practice and training
  • Understand and practice both formative/ summative assessment tools and provide constructive feedback to stimulate learning
  • Become a reflective practitioner, continually assessing their own performance as a trainer.


Practical, small group sessions in the skills laboratory, live operative coaching lessons and discussions form the core of the course

You will be expected to work in pairs or small groups in both simulated and realistic settings

You will also be offered the chance to demonstrate your coaching skills during the live operative sessions on the second day
