Working Week – example

The following are sample timetables for both induction and normal weeks taken from one of our training practices.  They will need to be adapted to suit your practice and your registrar.

1. ST1/2

Useful Guidelines

Your full time trainee should have the following averaged out over 6 weeks:

  • 7 clinical sessions
  • 1 tutorial
  • 2 other educational sessions

The ‘other educational sessions’ can be clinics either in or out of practice, shared surgeries, observing other practice members consult, well woman clinics, courses etc etc.  You can average out the sessions spent in induction over the following 6 weeks.

Part time trainees still require a 7:3 split, trainees should have pro-rata allocation of tutorials, so the balance of tutorial to other educational time will be different.

The study leave entitlement is 15 days per 6 months. This includes VTS sessions.
