Less than Full Time Working
All doctors in training are eligible to apply for Less than Full Time Working. Those wishing to continue their training on this basis must show that full time training would not be practical for them for well-founded individual reasons.
Trainees wishing to take up the option of less than full time training will need to have successfully obtained a post in the relevant specialty and grade in open competition. However, they will be expected to approach the Deanery prior to applying for posts to confirm that they are eligible for funding for less than full time working. The desire to train on a less than full time basis need not be disclosed to the interview panel but applicants are asked to reveal this information to either the Deanery or Medical Personnel (depending on who is organising the recruitment) prior to the interview so that they can make additional appointments if necessary
Trainees wishing to apply should refer to the Deanery policy on less than full time working. Trainees should submit their application as soon as their change in circumstances making them eligible for less than full time working becomes apparent.
If you would like further information on less than full time working please contact the relevant manager for your training:
