General advice for LTFT trainees

  • Take time with your educational supervisors to plan your training to achieve specific objectives in each post
  • Think about the skills you need to acquire to make yourself a good candidate for a consultant post, especially if you’re tied to a specific geographical area (you may need to travel if the training you desire isn’t available locally)
  • Keep adding to your CV by attending appropriate courses, undertaking audits and administrative duties and participating in your department
  • Your deanery website will contain information about local arrangements for LTFT training
