n about the Training & the Job Role These are fixed term posts with this training year funded by HEE. After successful completion of the course the fixed term training contract will end however applicants would be encouraged to apply for any vacant posts within our services and will be provided support and advice in job applications.

This full-time role will be best suited for applicants who are able to balance a busy work and study schedule.

Protected study time or teaching days are typically two days a week during term (with possibility of extra university days near the start) and will be a mixture of in person and online sessions.

Applicants must be willing to travel into London to attend their lectures.

More information about the courses and how the training works can be found here including the course brochures, and we strongly recommend you read the FAQs.
HEE are also expecting to implement a new rule regarding beneficiaries of their training year funding. We recommend you read this if you plan to apply to future trainings.
