Am I eligible to train LTFT?

Modified on Fri, 20 Jan 2023 at 02:45 PM

A list of criteria for which a trainee can apply to train LTFT is below: 

  • Trainees with a disability or ill health – This may include ongoing medical procedures such as fertility treatment.   
  • Trainees (men and women) with caring responsibilities (e.g. for children, or for an ill/disabled partner, relative or other dependant)  
  • Welfare and wellbeing – There may be reasons not directly related to disability or ill health where trainees may benefit from a reduced working pattern. This could have a beneficial effect on their health and wellbeing (e.g., reducing potential burnout).  
  • Unique opportunities – A trainee is offered a unique opportunity for their own personal/professional development, and this will affect their ability to train full time (e.g., training for national/international sporting events, or a short-term extraordinary responsibility such as membership of a national committee or continuing medical research as a bridge to progression in integrated academic training).  
  • Religious commitment – A trainee has a religious commitment that involves training for a particular role and requires a specific time commitment resulting in the need to work less than full time.   
  • Non-medical development – A trainee is offered non-medical professional development (e.g., management courses, law courses or fine arts courses) that requires a specific time commitment resulting in the need to work less than full time.  
  • Flexibility for training and career development with the option to train less than full time with flexibility that might enable development of a broad career portfolio
