Supporting problems with training
We are committed to providing the highest possible level of support to trainees so that they may achieve their Certification of Completion of Training (CCT).
This section outlines how trainees are supported when they encounter difficulties and, how trainees who have concerns may be supported in raising these.
The GMC Standards for postgraduate training require trainees to make the care of patients their first concern and deaneries to have processes for identifying, supporting and managing trainees whose progress, health or conduct is giving rise to concern.
The London Deanery’s process for supporting and managing trainees who require additional support with their training is contained within the Deanery’s “Framework for the Management of Trainees in Difficulty”.
To support trainees in raising concerns regarding their training the Deanery has published guidance regarding whistle blowing.
Many Schools, through the Deanery’s Quality Team, organise regular visits to Local Education Providers (LEPs). These visits offer trainees a confidential forum to raise concerns regarding training experiences.
Data relating to trainees encountering difficulties are reviewed by the Trainee in Difficulty Performance Advisory Group including analysis of statistical trends.
