ST1-3 Training Programmes

September 2017 - August 2018

Please note the teaching date for June 2018 has been moved from 13 June 2018 to 27 June to avoid a clash with the FOP/TAS exam.  This information will be cascaded to College Tutors to filter down to rota coordinators. 

The teaching programme for ST1-3 trainees from September 2017 has changed to one day a month (second Wednesday of the month).  There are various reasons for these changes, however, trainees were asked to feedback on the training structure a couple of years ago and teaching once a month was one of the favoured models.  The teaching will rotate around the region which will hopefully be fair to all trainees. 

Please ensure the dates are in your diary even though speakers might not yet be confirmed.  Topics and speakers might move around but it is highly unlikley dates/location will change.  Trainees will be expected to submit none attendance forms for any sessions you are unable to Adele Simpson these must be submitted after the sessions.  The link to the form is below. 

Please make a note of all teaching sessions in your diary and keep an eye on this website for confirmed topics/speakers.  The outline programme link below will give more detail of the topics which will be covered in each session.

Teaching attendance is set at 70% to allow for leave and night shifts etc.


Non-attendance form (must be completed for each session you cannot attend)
