What is Spring / Autumn School?

Spring and Autumn School are usually annual, 4 day, events running in May and October. Each day contains a series of courses to choose from, aimed at the development of GP Trainers. The venue alternates between Hull, Leeds and Sheffield to enable access for all Trainers.


This Spring we are making a change from the usual Spring School format and instead there will be a 2 day trainer conference on 5th and 6th May 202 at Thorpe Park Hotel, Leeds.

Trainers can attend either or both days.


The theme is helping you to help trainees with three strands: 

1) Helping the trainee facing challenges to succeed

2) Helping to stretch the good/excellent trainee 

3) Helping you to thrive despite the challenges 


There will be keynote speakers and a choice of workshops.

We hope this will be an interesting and  stimulating event with lots of opportunity for learning and networking.

There will be a return to  the usual format of day courses for Autumn School.


Course Cost: 

The course is free to GP Trainers working in Yorkshire and the Humber. 

Course Dates:

Spring School - 05 & 06 May 2020 - CANCELLED

Autumn School - TBC
