All trainees are eligible to apply to exit from their programme within a 15 month window, starting 3 months prior to the fifth anniversary of their enrolment onto their programme and up to a year after that. Time out of training for parental leave (statutory) or other circumstances, with agreed training extension via the NSHCS Extenuating Circumstances policy, should be accounted for accordingly when calculating the fifth anniversary of programme. Trainees must inform the School by email that they are ready to exit. At this point the exit application form will be assigned to trainees to complete in their e-portfolio.
The exit application will require the trainee to confirm that they have met the requirements of their HSST programme pathway. In addition, it will require the trainee’s workplace supervisor to endorse their exit application.
