ST2 Teaching

  • The teaching programme will run from September until July. It will consist of 10 curriculum topics which will be repeated twice in a one month period (approximately).
  • It is the trainee's responsibility to check the timetable and confirm availability with their hospital department or GP practice before booking a place with the GP Office. Please liaise with your ST colleagues and rota organisers to share opportunities equally.
  • Attendance numbers at each session will be capped with priority given to trainees in a hospital placement.
  • If there is availability trainees in a GP placement may attend twice in one month if agreed with the practice.
  • All trainees to sign up in advance to show a presentation (based on listed curriculum topics). Further information about what is expected from a presentation can be found in the document below.
  • There is the expectation that trainees are to reach a minimum of 70% attendance based on 10 teaching sessions overall each academic year. Pro-rata for LTFT trainees.
  • Additional Topic Teaching sessions will be held approximately once a month. Attendance for all ST1s and ST2s is strongly encouraged and mandatory for all ST3s to attend. Some Topic Teaching is organised on our behalf by BGPERT, our external education provider.
  • Regular teaching reminders will be sent out (please plan ahead).
  • If you find you cannot attend please let the GP Office know as a courtesy.
  • If you do not complete the Survey Monkey online feedback your attendance will not be recorded.
  • Regular checks of teaching attendance will be made, especially around 6 month review and ARCP periods.
  • If it is on the teaching timetable an Accent study leave application does not need to be submitted.
  • Virtual teaching sessions will not be recorded unless otherwise advised.
