Stepping Up Champions

Our Stepping Up programme supports the five year period from RCPCH START ( Progress+ ST7) to the end of year three consultancy. This page is for the regional Stepping Up Champions supporting the programme.


A regional network for senior trainees (post-RCPCH START ST7s and up) and new consultants (up to three years into consultancy) can help prepare senior trainees for the transition. It can also support new consultants working in an increasingly challenging working environment, improving morale and encouraging entrants to paediatrics longer term.
