Vacancies for the IDT process are highlighted at a local level by individual training regions and these are declared to the National IDT team after the relevant application window has closed. This is to ensure the National IDT team is able to collect the most accurate and up-to-date information from regions prior to allocating vacancies to eligible trainees.


The National IDT team is therefore unable to provide vacancy information before the application deadline.


An indication of the level of vacancies that might be available can be determined by looking at the past statistics. The statistics can be accessed via the resource bank within the specialty training website. Training regions actively look for a post for you once we have sent your eligibility information.
