Study Leave Guidelines - August 2023


There was a review of the annual funding available per trainee for study leave following the introduction of the new study leave guidelines in August 2016.

It was agreed that funding available to trainees would increase to £1250 for the forthcoming academic years.

The guidance in relation to the maximum payment level per Highly Recommended event has increased to £750, and for Desirable courses remain at £250. The study leave application form has also been amended to reflect this:

Category

Maximum Funding for Category per Event

Mandatory (Identified in curriculum)

£1250 (higher amounts only with prior APD approval)

Non-Mandatory Highly Recommended

£750 (total including this event cannot exceed £1250)

Non-Mandatory Desirable

£250 (total including this event cannot exceed £1250)

Examination attendance expenses

Only applicable if less than 2 attempts at same exam have been funded during training to date

This does not impact on mandatory events which have been discussed and agreed with individual TPDs.  As previously indicated, if an application is not made prospectively there will be no funding provided.
