Post CCT Information



Post-CCT Overview

There are two different post CCT fellowships available.

Health Education England has offered a number of fellowships that practices can apply to host. They offer 1-2 sessions a week of funded time for education and a bursary of £5000 for educational costs. If a practice is successful in bidding to host a fellow they can appoint as a salaried or partnership post to a GP within 5 years or receiving their CCT. This year’s fellowships will start in April 2021. There is information about the 2020/21 HEE fellows on our website, including some available posts: 


We will let recently qualified GPs and those due to qualify about the 2021/22 programme know more.


HEE also runs a Higher Professional Education (HPE) programme which is available to all GPs in the first 5 years – including locums as well as those in salaried posts, and is based around virtual half day sessions over a range of days - sessions are recorded. HEE also runs the Professional Education and Development (PED) which is an intensive programme over 2 years which is accredited at MSc level by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN). This is appropriate for GPs in a salaried or partnership post. The accreditation by UCLAN can link with Educational Supervisor academic accreditation towards a postgraduate Diploma or Masters. For information on either of these courses contact


The second fellowships are funded by NHS England, they are available for newly qualified GPs within 12 months of CCT who are in a substantive post - salaried or partnership, and offer catching, mentoring and educational support. They are organised by the training hubs - contact details to find out more about these are below - if the links don’t take you to the right place then contact the training hub directly - your practice manager should be able to give you details:
