The webinar will provide hints and tips for pre-regs who are preparing for the assessment

Catherine Viner

The AOP will host a webinar on 23 January for pre-reg optometrists who are about to take their Stage 2 assessment of the Scheme for Registration.

Presented by senior lecturer at the University of Bradford, Catherine Viner (pictured), Stage 2 in sight? Come and get some insight starts at 7pm.

The webinar has been designed to help pre-regs prepare for their Stage 2 visit, which many people find a daunting experience, with tips and hints to make the assessment less overwhelming.

Ms Viner will use her university experience of preparing students for assessments and share her knowledge from being a pre-reg supervisor to help trainees prepare for the visit.
