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 DRC and topic teaching). The remaining sessions are available for you to organise your own study leave events. The Dorothy House placement will take 8 sessions.
LTFT trainees have study leave time calculated on a pro-rata basis.
Once leave has been approved by your Educational Supervisor as part of your PDP, 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 ES spoken to for approval. Study leave will only be approved by the GP Office with these authorisations and it may be necessary to escalate the application to the APD/GP School for final approval.
