Introducing your STP programme

Watch the video to find out about the Scientist Training Programme.

Components of the programme

The curriculum for the programme is comprised of a series of core and scientific modules. Each of these modules is made up of two parts:

  • Academic learning delivered and assessed in the university
  • Work-based learning and training where you develop and apply your academic and clinical knowledge and skills in the NHS workplace

For the work-based part of each of your modules, you will be required to create and submit evidence in your e-portfolio for assessment by supervisors and assessors in your workplace. The e-portfolio allows you to store evidence as you generate it and to visualise your progress against the work-based requirements for individual modules after you have submitted the evidence and had it approved.
