Is our regional supported return to training (suppoRTT) programme meeting the needs of all trainees? This is an exciting opportunity for a Future Leadership Fellow to evaluate/innovate & build on previous work in a regional project of their own within HEE Yorkshire and Humber. The supported return to training (SuppoRTT) programme was established in 2017 by Health Education England to enable trainees to have a safe, supported return to work offering a wide range of learning and suppoRTT resources. Trainees are a diverse group and may need time out of training for a variety of reasons e.g. planned such as research or a fellowship, or unplanned, such as parental/carers leave, bereavement or ill health. Many trainees will have differing needs and face a variety of challenges on their return such as a loss of confidence/anxiety as well as loss of technical skills. It is important trainees are supported to return safely and the culture amongst the NHS continues to support and promote this. Previous projects include communication skills courses, immersive technology. There will be three main components to your role. Firstly the SuppoRTT project in which you will have the opportunity to determine both the scope and direction. Secondly, your own personal development as a leader, in this respect you are the project. The third component is the successful completion of a relevant one-year postgraduate qualification. Regular supervision with an Associate Dean will be made available.
