Dental Core Training Recruitment 2018
Recruitment to Dental Core training (DCT) posts in the UK from 2017 onwards will be through a national selection process led by Health Education England’s West Midlands local office (DCT posts in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be included). The revised recruitment and selection processes will ensure standardisation in selection and values based recruitment in line with other national training programmes.Applicants can apply to all levels DCT1, DCT2 or DCT3. The level of DCT post will depend on how many years of DCT training an applicant has previously undertaken.Applications and offers will be made through the national recruitment system Oriel. This system enables the national coordination of the application and offer processes and will allow applicants to accept only one post. Please see the national recruitment timeline belowLonglisted applicants will be invited to attend one of the five national selection centres held from 30th April to 4th May 2018. Applicants will be able to select which centre to attend. Applicants will be asked to preference all the posts in which they are interested. By preferencing more posts applicants will have a better chance of securing a post. If applicants choose only a limited number of preferences it could be that they are unsuccessful in securing any post if they do not score highly at the selection centre for the posts they have preferenced. Offers will be made in rank order by performance at the selection centre. Once offers have been made the system will also allow upgrades so that you can accept a higher preference post if that becomes available. This system of upgrades will continue until 4pm 21st June 2018.Further information will be contained in the applicant guide and persons specifications for each vacancy.
