ST1 Teaching

  • Trainees in a hospital post for 12 months are to aspire to attend 10 mandatory teaching sessions (mandatory) with a minimum of 70% to allow for leave and rota issues. Pro-rata for LTFT trainees.
  • Each teaching session is held jointly with ST2 trainees. Trainees may be split into their respective year groups for the 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.
  • Attendance will be recorded using the signed register from each session.
  • Regular checks of teaching attendance will be made, especially around 6 month reviews and ARCP periods.
  • If it is on the teaching timetable an Accent study leave application does not need to be submitted.
