Paid study leave (now called ‘Curriculum Study Leave’) is available to each trainee throughout their training programme in addition to holiday entitlement. It is intended to allow trainees to address areas of professional development relevant to their chosen career that will enhance the learning and experience from their training programme. A certain amount of funding is available too for specific expenses incurred during this leave. The amount of money available may vary but will be known by your locality programme office.
A new electronic (online) application system was introduced by Health Education East Midlands in August 2013. The full HEEM Curriculum Study Leave policy is available here.
All applications for Curriculum Study Leave must be submitted using Intrepid Leave Manager at https://www.intrepidv10.co.uk/EMD. Guidance on how to use the system is available on the Curriculum Study Leave webpage.
