What is SuppoRTT?

Modified on Wed, 03 Aug 2022 at 04:02 PM

The London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex Supported Return to Training (SuppoRTT) programme aims to support all trainees to safely and confidently return to training after a sustained period of absence. The programme applies to all trainees absent for 3 months or more, regardless of the reason. Those absent for a shorter period may also opt in.

Reason to be absent include:

  • Parental leave
  • Sick leave
  • OOPE/ OOPC/ OOPR/ OOPT

As returning trainees are a diverse group, SuppoRTT aims to provide a bespoke, individualised package for each returning trainee.

This includes

A structured and systematic process for planning absence and return to training, and maintaining contact while on leave

A menu of options that can be built into an individualised return-to-training package, agreed between a trainee and their educational supervisor.
