I am a Foundation Trainee: Can I apply for ALS courses?

Modified on Tue, 16 May 2023 at 10:21 AM

Foundation Trainees should apply for ALS courses through their Employing Trusts, who will take care of the course organisation and delivery, and who will claim back for reimbursement from HEE in their monthly returns. For Foundation Trainees, from 1st April 2023 a £350 cap per person is applied to these courses, as an ALS course is no longer specified as a requirement in the Foundation curriculum. 

Should a Foundation doctor be unable to attend a locally delivered ALS course and join a course organised externally, HEE will only refund a maximum amount of £350 per Foundation doctor to the Trust. Please note that these would be treated as very exceptional circumstances, as Employing Trusts should always encourage Foundation doctors to attend their locally delivered ALS courses where applicable.
