The study leave year runs from August until the following July. 30 days (60 sessions) is your total allowance. From this total sessions are deducted for structured teaching (group work, induction, topic teaching). The remaining sessions are available for you to organise your own study leave events. Please remember you will need 5 days (10 sessions) for ST3 practice visits. LTFT trainees have study leave time calculated on a pro-rata basis.
Once leave has been approved by the Educational Supervisor (as part of your PDP), Clinical Supervisor & Rota Coordinator (for the time off to attend), you must enter the training course and estimated study leave expenses onto Intrepid at least two weeks before the date of the course commencing, entering the named people (Educational Supervisor, Clinical Supervisor & Rota Coordinator) spoken to for approval. Study leave will only be approved by the GP Office with these necessary authorisations.
