LTFT trainees are able to apply via the National IDT process but it can’t be guaranteed that LTFT status will be continued should a transfer be possible.


If a LTFT vacancy exists in a new region then this can be offered to a trainee. However, if only full-time vacancies exist within a region then trainees will have to negotiate LTFT status and will have to follow local processes for confirming this.


There are some posts which are only suitable for LTFT trainees and some which are only suitable for full time trainees, though some posts could accommodate either. You should tell us exactly what you need on your application form; if you are eligible, your prospective training region will look for a post that suits your needs. If you could work LTFT or full time, please write that in your application form.
