Capitalising on the collective wealth of knowledge and experience of the Optometry Partner in the store you join and within the Specsavers group through active mentorship
I work in a store with up to five optometrists working at any given time. Our team has a culture that encourages continual learning and development through the regular sharing of interesting and challenging cases. Additionally, inter-practitioner observation is encouraged where I am exposed to different practice styles and receive constructive feedback on my own in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.
2017 Graduate Cohort
The two year program comprises three pillars standing on the foundation of mentorship
Year 1 - Hit the ground running
Year 2 - Practice, practice, practice!
Shape your future with Specsavers
The learning never ends
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an interactive process to maintain, enhance and extend the practitioner’s knowledge, expertise and competence throughout their career. CPD is an important component in the continued provision of safe, effective and high quality optometric services. Specsavers CPD events occur throughout the year and focus on first-hand recommendations from our suppliers regarding ways to enhance customer satisfaction, ophthalmologist presentations and the RANZCO collaborative care pathways. Specsavers offers approximately 17,000 CPD points per year between online and event based activities.
