Accessing Centralised Study Budgets - Specialty Course Guidance 

The following information is offered as guidance and is not finite or exhaustive; there may be other courses that would be accepted that are not listed here. All study leave applications should be discussed with Educational Supervisor or Training Programme Director who will review the application against curriculum requirements and your personal development plan (PDP). This discussion will highlight whether the courses is aligned to curriculum and achievement of Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) or whether the course is of an aspirational nature. Part-funding may be considered to support aspirational activity; however, approval must be sought form the TPD or HoS.
