Training Programme Directors

Training Programme Directors (TPD) are employed by Health Education North East (HEENE) to run the training programme.  They work closely with the Head of School.  Most are employed for the equivalent of one session per week.

The TPD for ACCS CT1 is not part of the School of Anaesthesia.  The ACCS (anaes) trainees in their 2nd and 3rd years are managed jointly by the TPD for core training and the ACCS CT2 TPD.

 

There are also a TPD who has a specific role helping with trainees who have differing needs or who may not be progressing through the programme as planned.

 

Specific responsibilities include;

Day-to-day management of the rotation (full and part-time trainees)

They are also involved with supporting individual trainees, communicating with anaesthetic departments (including quality assurance of training), liaising with staff from the LET and HEENE, helping with appraisal and ARCP, management and running of courses, participation in national committees/events (eg College, National Recruitment).
