Opportunities to act up are not available to all trainees and are only possible if the opportunity arises and an employing or host local education provider/Trust extends an invitation.

Trainees wishing to act up should normally be within one year of their anticipated completion of training.


Approval will only be considered if the acting up placement is relevant to gaining competences, knowledge, skills and behaviours required by the curriculum


Trainees with unmet objectives, unsatisfactory ARCP outcomes or outstanding competences are not normally eligible to apply to act up.
