Building the workforce for the future
The Dental Therapists Foundation Training programme (DTFT) has been developed to support new or recently qualified Dental Therapists during their transition into the Primary Dental Care workforce.
The Scheme places particular emphasis on providing continued support and education in a clinical environment, as well as assisting the development of personal skills and knowledge through the educational study day programme and supported by Educational Supervisors and the Training Programme Director.
Covering the North East and North Cumbria, the scheme runs from 1st September until 31 August each year. Therapists are employed within training practices and allocated an approved Educational Supervisor to provide practice supervision.
Applications for the 2020-2021 training year will open:
29 November 2019 for Educational Supervisors
January 2021 for Therapists
