GP training programme directors (TPDs) are tasked with ensuring that individual training programmes are sufficiently broad and balanced to meet the requirements for a GP specialty trainee to achieve a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT).
They oversee delivery of GP curriculum in hospital posts and co-ordinate educational programmes for trainees.
Safeguarding children policy
As GP trainees work with children and young people, GP trainers are required to ensure their trainees have maintained their knowledge and competencies in keeping children safe from harm.
It is expected that all trainees will have completed the safeguarding children training (level 2) annually. This policy would need to be followed accordingly.
