Less Than Full-Time training (LTFT)
The RCPCH flexible coordinators provide advice and support to less than full time trainees and meet twice a year to discuss less than full time training and raise relevant issues with the Trainees' Committee.
Paediatricians have pioneered initiatives within LTFT training which have been strongly supported by the College. Paediatrics consequently has higher numbers of part-time trainees than other hospital specialties.
LTFT training can provide an ideal solution for trainees who wish to combine family commitments or other interests with their career.
Please note LTFT trainees should complete their workplace based assessments pro-rata and ensure that they are spaced evenly between their different posts.
