The FY2 generic skills teaching programme has been revised to include as many of the ‘core topics’ in the 2021 version of the Foundation curriculum as possible and has been renamed:
FLiGHT – Foundation Learning in Generic Hot Topics.
The 2021 version of the Foundation curriculum mandates that all Foundation Doctors must attend and log a minimum of 30 hours of ‘core’ teaching, with a minimum of 60 hours of core and non-core in total (which can include extra ‘core’ teaching) per training year. NIMDTA will continue to provide ‘core’ teaching within this new programme for FY2 doctors, but there will also be simulation teaching provided within the Trusts. Some of the previous F2 Generic Skills sessions will remain, such as Quality Improvement methodology, Safeguarding and Careers guidance, but a number of new topics have been added. Although these new topics will be mostly delivered as 2-hour zoom sessions, each Foundation Doctor will be allocated study leave for a half day so that there will be time for reading before the session and then reflecting and recording in the eportfolio afterwards. All sessions are mandatory, although only one is non-core (GMC and professionalism). Constructive feedback is a vital component of programme development and is therefore a required part of participation in the Foundation programme and attendance at FLiGHT. Positive feedback where appropriate is also very helpful. Each teaching session should be logged in the eportfolio and can then be used as a piece of evidence which can be linked to the new Foundation Professional Capabilities (maximum of three FPCs). A reflection on the session will increase the weight of this evidence when considered at the ARCP.
