Vision statement

Our core value is to benefit children in the region by providing excellent training opportunities for future paediatricians, many of whom will stay within the region. We take pride in our high quality training that ensures our CCT holders have the knowledge and people skills required to work as effective Paediatricians.

We aim to work collaboratively with all training units to create a holistic training environment that allows for optimal learning and takes the needs of adult learners into account.

The paediatric trainee is at the heart of our efforts and we aim to provide an excellent learning environment, taking personal requirements into account, as this results in happier and better trained doctors.

New toolkit offers paediatric trainees learning on health promotion

The Academy of Public Health for London and Kent, Surrey and Sussex (KSS) – a HEE in London and KSS-funded workforce initiative – has worked with public health consultants from Eduqual Ltd, to deliver a toolkit for paediatric trainees, integrating public health knowledge and understanding into their education and training. It is available on the Population Wellbeing Portal.


Training Progression and Exams

There has still been no confirmed news when RCPCH will restart exams.

Key changes due to this are progression to ST4 can occur without clinical exam as long as all written exams have been passed.

START will take place on the 8/9th October and will be a virtual assessment

Paediatric Transition to Leadership course

Transition to Leadership is a free course to help prepare paediatric SHOs who are transitioning to a Registrar position in 2020.
This well-established course ran annually for several years face-to-face, and due to Covid-19, has been adapted to run ONLINE for this year.
The course is organised by the London School of Paediatrics - this year they are offering the opportunity to all transitioning SHOs across the UK, to join our virtual course.
