Foundation Training Vacancies

Foundation Training vacancies in the North West of England Foundation School

 

F1 Vacancies

 

After national recruitment to two year foundation training closes, any F1 level vacancies which arise, in accordance with current GMC regulations, will be advertised as service posts only. Only doctors holding full GMC registration will be eligible to apply for these posts. Advertising and recruitment will be carried out by the trust directly, with the vacancy and advert published on the NHS Jobs website.

  

Any vacancies that arise will be advertised on the NHS Jobs website.

    

F2 Vacancies


Standalone F2 level vacancies that arise in the spring time and are recruited to via Oriel will be eligible as one-year fixed term Locum Appointment for Training (LAT) posts.  Appointees will be part of the Foundation School and have access to all educational resources, including the Foundation Programme e-portfolio.  However, there will be no guaranteed access to remedial training if the applicant does not attain the relevant level of competence at the end of the fixed-term contract.

 

One year fixed term F2 LAT posts are only open to doctors holding full GMC registration with a license to practice and in line with national directive recruitment to one-year fixed term F2 LAT posts must be completed by May after which any remaining vacancies or further vacancies will be advertised locally by Trusts as service posts only.

F2 LAT Clearing Phase

 

Applicants who have received an offer in the first two rounds of offers on Wednesday 30th May and Monday 4th June 2018 will not receive further offers as part of the clearing process.

For example, if an applicant received an offer from Northern and declined this offer during the first round of offers, they will not receive a further offer from Northern during clearing. The applicant could however receive an offer from North West of England if they had applied there and not previously received an offer.

Applicants who have accepted offers during the first two rounds of offers will not receive further offers from any foundation school.

Any vacancies remaining after the final round of offers on Monday 4th June 2018 will be released to local employers for recruitment to Locum Appointment to Service (LAS) posts.

Overseas applicants

 

Overseas graduates seeking training in the UK are advised to contact to the General Medical Council (GMC) in the first instance to establish the level of GMC registration they are eligible for in the UK. 

Entry to the UK at Foundation level is dependent on whether a doctor is eligible for provisional or full registration.  If a doctor is eligible for provisional registration with the GMC then entry will be via the national Eligibility Office. 

If a doctor is eligible for full registration with the GMC then entry may be via application to a one-year fixed term F2 LAT post (subject to full entry requirements outlined in the national person specification)
