CSACs have particular responsibility for monitoring Level 3 trainees' progress through their sub-specialty training, advising and signing off sub-specialty CCTs (certificates of completion of training) and the continued development of their curriculum and assessment systems.

We are recruiting a trainee representative in the Paediatric Emergency Medicine Intercollegiate Specialist Advisory Committee (ISAC). You will advocate for and represent the views of sub-speciality trainees, bring perspective on training and assessment issues, and work with the regional reps on the Trainee Network to ensure views are represented nationally.

We also have a position for a training advisor in the Paediatric Oncology CSAC. You'll work with key stakeholders to improve and monitor training and standards of training within the sub-specialty, advise trainees on how they may work towards acquiring the
necessary competences and consider applications for CCT, among other tasks. 

And we have an opportunity for a quality advisor in our Paediatric Inherited Metabolic Medicine CSAC. You'll work with others to monitor and improve standards of training; one key role is to ensure sub-specialty trainees satisfy curriculum requirements, taking steps to support remediation where identified using RCPCH ePortfolio. 

Download the role descriptions below for more detail.

I’ve valued working with a new team who clinicians would not normally meet: the RCPCH staff. It has been, in a way, a second family away from hospital clinical work which has been both a great experience and also educational... After all what are we doing this ‘job’ for? It is to provide high quality training for the next generations of paediatricians.
