Trainee Courses and Events
The SuppoRTT Team organises a variety of courses to support trainees with their return to work and the clinical environment.
Our course catalogue, which can be found below, provides specific information about each course that we run and how they will be of benefit to you, as well as a course calendar of the courses coming up in the next few months. Our SuppoRTT Newsletter provides other useful information about the programme, recent updates and also lists the upcoming courses.
A full calendar of SuppoRTT courses can be found at the bottom of this page, complete with links to Maxcourse for easy booking.
Travel and subsistence (if applicable) expenses for attending face-to-face SuppoRTT courses can be claimed via study leave. In order to claim a study leave application must be submitted on ALM and approved before the event. When submitting your application on ALM, please select ‘Study’ as the leave type and ‘NHSE SuppoRTT Course’ from the event list. Please see the Study Leave pages for more information about the process.
SuppoRTT CPD Funding
There may be some instances where a training need is identified that cannot be addressed by our provision. Where this is the case, trainees may be able to apply for CPD funding.
CPD funding is available to all trainees who have been absent from clinical training for three months or more. Examples of activities that the funding can be used for include, but are not limited to:
- Speciality Specific Training Days
- Mixed Speciality Courses
Funding must be applied for in advance and is only available for courses or events that are taking place within three months of the Trainee's planned return to practice, or three months after their return. In exceptional circumstances, if the course/activity does not fall between these periods then approval by the SuppoRTT Associate Deans will be required.
Trainees wishing to apply for SuppoRTT CPD funding should read our funding guidance in full before making any application. Funding requests will only be approved if they comply with the policy.
Trainees can apply for CPD funding using our online application form.
