News about education and careers

Progress+ builds on our paediatric curriuclum for excellence, first launched in 2018. This new training programme is the College's response to Shape of training and it's now been approved by the General Medical Council for rollout from 2023.

It's outcomes-based, flexible and fit for the needs of children and young people.

COVID-19 updates

We know the pandemic has caused disruption to medical education, training and assessment in the UK, and throughout we've committed to supporting paediatric trainees and those who deliver paediatric training. 

We have a broad range of online events and free eLearning, and are safely delivering our theory and clinical exams. We've also produced principles for redeployment to adult services.

We also have a guidance on paediatric services, staffing/rotas and collecting data on cases, as well as summaries of the evidence - you can find it all on our COVID-19 hub.
