STAR stands for Supporting Training Appraisal & Revalidation.

STAR aims to do all of these by providing an online system designed specifically with senior medical staff in mind. The system allows senior medical staff to achieve and evidence training, in key work-related areas, despite the other pressures on their time.

STAR was developed in NHS Lanarkshire in 2010 and has been operating for NHS Education for Scotland since then to support the training of senior medical staff across Scotland.
Through individual profiling at registration, each medical user is provided with a menu of training tailored according to their current roles.

In addition, the training materials themselves are written with senior medical input and with the senior medical audience and their particular needs in mind. The quality and speed of training delivery for busy medics is enhanced by the use of videos within several materials.
