Progress+ and me - information for trainees by ST level

Progress+ is our new two-level training programme, and will be rolled out from summer 2023. We explain how current trainees at each Specialty Trainee (ST) level will move through the training programme once Progress+ is in place from this summer.

This version was updated on 5 October 2022 and supersedes the earlier version for the 2021/22 academic year.

Our downloadable flyer has been updated for the 2022/23 academic year, and includes more information on how Progress+ will impact sub-specialty applications. It provides general principles, based on full time training with no statutory leave or out of programme. However, pathways will be individualised and the guidance will need to be interpreted with flexibility. Your educational supervisor will guide you through your training years.

See our Progress+ landing page for more resources, FAQs and insights on the 11 training principles, as well as the new curriuclum and syllabi. You can also email us on
