CCT and CESR follow up study

What happens to new CCT (Certificate of Completion of Training) and CESR (Certificate of Eligibility for the Specialist Register) holders after they receive their certificate? The College is undertaking regular monitoring to look at the career outcomes for paediatricians shortly after their recommendation for CCT or CESR.

Why are we doing this work?

This annual survey helps us to:

  • understand rates of full time and less than full time working among new consultants, in order to inform workforce planning,
  • understand attrition rates from paediatrics and from the UK post-CCT/CESR,
  • compare the composition of the new consultant workforce to subspecialty demand,
  • understand the working patterns and pressures facing new consultants, and
  • ensure that the RCPCH is providing the right support to members in the early stages of their consultant career.
