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. If you wish to apply for financial support towards the costs of 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. You should consider not committing yourself to attend the event or course until you have received confirmation that your claim has been approved and an indication of the level of funding that has been allocated to your claim. Further detail on the process can be found on the aspirational process document. Once you have this approval, you can apply to your Trust as per the usual process. Appropriate aspirational courses are courses which will add to your development or benefit the wider healthcare system. Due to the aspirational nature of these events, you should not expect to receive full funding for the event or course.
How do I make the case for an aspirational educational/training course/experience to be covered by study budget?
