PLEASE NOTE: All GPST teaching sessions are bleep-free. Please leave your bleep at Reception.

ST1 and ST2

Throughout the ST1 and ST2 period a training programme is held on Wednesday afternoons at the Education Centre from 2-5pm and as it is part of your contractual arrangements it is therefore mandatory. The programme is focused for your education, but it is also an opportunity to get to know your fellow trainees.
The teaching programme is approximately half of your study leave allowance and the only reason for non-attendance is illness, annual leave or if on nights. All rota co-ordinators have a list of your teaching programme dates and responsibility lies with you to check for clashes. Non-attendance must be registered with Yvonne prior to the teaching and failure to attend without reason may be a disciplinary matter.


Your ST3 Registrar year will commence with a two-day induction held locally, followed by the weekly day release to the GP course which is also held at the Education Centre on Wednesdays from 9.30-12.30pm. The Education Centre is available in the afternoons for SCA practice with help from local Trainers as well as our GPST training staff.
