The purpose of the meetings
All trainees and training officers are asked to meet with the School when a trainee receives an outcome 3 from the MRP, and/or if there are previously known issues raised outside of the MRP process that would benefit from further discussion.
The meetings are intended as a facilitative and supportive measure for both the trainee and training officer to review and discuss the issues in more detail, with the aim of supporting both parties to identifying remedial actions to improve progression.
Each meeting will usually result in an action plan being prepared with objectives set which the trainee, with the support of their training officer, will be responsible for meeting within the timescales outlined. Action plans will be reviewed to ensure that the necessary progress is being made.
The School will facilitate the discussion, provide advice and guide the recommendations and production of the action plan by the trainee.
There will be no punitive measures taken as a result of the support meetings and trainees will be given every opportunity to meet the requirements of the programme. However, should the activities in the action plan not be met within the required timescales, then a further review of progression will be necessary.
Continued and sustained failure to meet the required targets may result in the trainee being referred to the School’s training management panel, at which point the feasibility of their continuation on the programme will be considered.
