JETS

JETS (JAG Endoscopy Training System) supports endoscopists in the UK to deliver high quality and standardised training. JETS provides an online log book, facilitates trainees to demonstrate their competence and is used to advertise and quality assure JAG approved training courses and centres.

JETS is a web-based e-portfolio which allows trainees and trainers to record their endoscopic experience and demonstrate their performance, progression and competence. JAG certification is managed by JETS, this is awarded to trainees who can evidence that they are working at a standard that is appropriate for them to work independently. The criteria and process for certification and JAGs work on training is clinically led. Leadership and strategy for training is overseen by the Quality Assurance of Training Working Group.

JAG currently provides certification in:

  • Diagnostic Upper GI Endoscopy (OGD)
  • Colonoscopy (provisional and full)
  • Flexible Sigmoidoscopy
  • Paediatric diagnostic upper GI endoscopy (OGD)
  • Paediatric colonoscopy

There is currently work in developing a certification process for ERCP, EUS and GI bleeds.

Trainers

The e-Portfolio allows trainers to review trainees’ portfolios and tailor their training to focus on specific learning objectives thereby increasing the efficiency of endoscopy training. Trainers can utilise the system to monitor the anonymous feedback left by trainees, review a summary of the training they have provided and the outputs from DOTS (Direct Observation of Training Skills) peer reviews, all of which can be used for appraisals.

Training leads

Each endoscopy service with trainees should have a training lead(s). They have further functionality, including being able to review the performance of independently practicing endoscopists to ensure that they are achieving key performance indicators. The training lead’s summary screen also supports dedicated training list allocation meetings, monitoring the training received by trainees and several items on the training GRS.
