ST1-3 Training Programmes

Important information:

  • Please note teaching on Wednesday 13 October 2021 in the afternoon will commence at 14:15 p.m. due to speaker availability and will go on until 16:15.
  • The teaching programme is continually updated when speakers confirm.  Teaching for the forseeable will take place via Teams and links will be sent out monthly for each session.  The length of the teaching via Teams is varying from speaker to speaker as we all adapt to a new way of working and juggling around changing work loads/patterns but we are trying to stick to the parameters of the morning and afternoon sessions.  Please keep an eye on the website for update/changes or cancellations to the programme.  
  • Teaching is being recorded and with permission from the speakers this will be sent out to trainees after each session.  If any trainee does not wish the teaching to be recorded you must let us know and you can email Adele Simpson directly if this is the case.
  • Feedback - please ensure you complete the online feedback.  This is the only way we know if the teaching we deliver is helpful.  The link will be sent to trainees the day before/day of teaching.  if you are not receiving the link please let us know.  We expect the feedback to be done within 24 hours of the teaching. 
  • None attendance at teaching - Teaching attendance is set at 70% to allow for annual leave/night shifts/sick leave etc. and attendance is mandatory outside of those conditions.  Units should release trainees for teaching.  Trainees will be expected to submit none attendance forms for any sessions you are unable to attend to Adele Simpson these must be submitted after the sessions (not months later).  None-attendance form.
  • The outline programme gives more detail of the topics which will be covered in each session.  Please make a note of all teaching sessions in your diary and keep an eye on this website for any changes.
