The HEE Study leave process has recently been updated
- You are allowed 30 days per year to attend educational activities
- You will only be funded to attend courses/activities required for Curriculum Delivery
- There are recommended courses for each stage of training.
- You must apply in advance according to the requirements of your local Post Graduate centre (usually 6-8 weeks). Applications less than 6 weeks in advance may be rejected when you try to claim the money back
This is decided at local hospital level. Enquire directly with your College Tutor.

Possibly, the school has a responsibility to deliver the curriculum as set by the RCoA. Where there is an occasional underspend in the budget, the Head of School can allocate additional funding. Apply directly to Dr Horn or Dr Jackson
No, the curriculum delivery budget is not calculated on a per-capita basis.
As it was not well attended and many people did not find it useful it has been discontinued. However, if you need support with your exam and want to attend an external course you may request funding by applying to Dr Horn or Dr Jackson
Possibly, the school is working with the TPDs to agree recommended courses for sub-specialty trainees i.e. ICM, pain, cardiac, neuro, paeds. Apply directly to Dr Horn or Dr Jackson

This will be decided on a case-by-case basis for post-Primary FRCA trainees. Please seek TPD/HoS approval BEFORE paying any course fees as reimbursement is not guaranteed.
The concept of trainee educational development time has developed and been included in the new curriculum. Further info can be found on the RCoA link below:
