RCGP revalidation lead Professor Nigel Sparrow said the college would develop enhanced training for GPs with an interest in education, such as trainers and tutors, to offer remediation support.
However, Professor Sparrow said that any additional work this created for trainers should not affect GP trainees.
'Remediation needs to be made a very separate workstream from GP training.
'I do not want to see GP trainers taken out of GP training,' he said.
GPC trainee subcommittee chairman Dr Krishna Kasaraneni said he would be concerned if remediation took trainers away from their core role of training GPs.
'It comes down to workforce numbers and do we actually have enough trainers?'
'It is something that can be looked into but we need to be very careful to look at what we are asking them to do. Numbers would be an issue,' he said.
Dr Kasaraneni said that it was important to wait to see how many GPs would actually need remediation before committing GP trainers to the role.
