If you wish to apply for a course that does not appear on the study leave lists you will need to contact your Training Programme Director (TPD) for approval with information regarding the course and the justification for attending. Your TPD will then review the request and if approved send to your Head of School (HoS) for final approval. You will then be contacted by the Business Support team to inform you if your request has been approved.   Further detail on the process can be found on the aspirational process document. Once you have this approval you can then apply to your Trust as per the usual process. If you plan to apply for a course that does not appear on the study leave lists, discuss early with your ES/TPD and make sure you have achieved your required curriculum and competencies to support your application. Appropriate aspirational courses are courses which will add value to you individually and the wider system, for example quality improvement workshops, leadership/medical management courses, healthcare technology and innovation workshops, scientific conferences and TPDs will be seeking support from the Heads of School.
