For now, we are working on the basis that teaching will be held by Zoom but it is hoped face to face will be re-introduced very soon.
- Trainees are to aspire to attend 10 ST1 teaching sessions (mandatory) overall each academic year with a minimum of 70% to allow for leave and rota issues. Pro-rata for LTFT trainees.
First part of each session is held jointly with the ST3 trainees. Trainees are split into their respective year groups for second half of the session.
Additional Topic Teaching sessions (not mandatory) will be held approximately once a month. Some Topic Teaching is organised on our behalf by BGPERT, our external education provider. https://www.bathgped.co.uk/
It is the trainee's responsibility to check the timetable and confirm availability with their hospital department or GP practice before booking a place with the GP Office.
Regular teaching reminders will be sent out (please plan ahead).
If you find you cannot attend please let the GP Office know as a courtesy.
If you do not complete the Survey Monkey feedback your attendance will not be recorded.
Regular checks of teaching attendance will be made, especially around 6 month reviews and ARCP periods.
If it is on the teaching timetable an Intrepid study leave application does not need to be submitted.
Zoom teaching sessions will not be recorded unless otherwise advised.
