Getting a trainee

This information is for employers who are considering employing an STP trainee, either through the in-service or direct entry route.


Are you interested in employing an STP trainee?

If you are interested in employing a trainee from the Scientist Training Programme (STP), you need to contact your local healthcare science lead. See below for their contact details.

There may be specific conditions that your department needs to have in place before agreeing to commission a trainee post. You must also inform your lead scientist and Trust education and training lead of your plans to employ a STP trainee.

You may also want to take a look at our Accreditation information, as you will have to pass Accreditation before becoming a training centre.
