Supported Return to Training (SuppoRTT)

HEE recognises that trainees take time out their training programme for a number of reasons, such as parental leave, OOP, carers leave and sickness. Returning to training, regardless of the reason can be a difficult and stressful time for trainees.

HEE is committed to supporting trainees to return to training after a period of extended absence (3 months or more). The Supported Return to Training (SuppoRTT) initiative aims to support trainees with their confidence, skills and knowledge so that they can safely and confidently return to practice within their training programme.

Planned Absence (including Parental Leave and approved OOP)

If you are taking a planned period of absence of more than 3 months, you will need to have a discussion with your Educational Supervisor before your leave starts and complete a 'Return to Training Pre-absence' form.

Prior to Return to Training

Trainees that have taken a period of absence for 3 months or more will need to complete a return to training plan as follows:

  • We recommend that you discuss your return to training with your Educational Supervisor/Training Programme Director at least 8 weeks before your anticipated return date.
  • You can discuss a supervised return, your learning needs and any courses/activities that may help with your return to training.
  • Complete a ‘Return to Training Pre-Return form' with your Educational Supervisor detailing your plan for returning to training and your anticipated return date.
  • Return the forms to your Training Programme Director and to HEE Thames Valley.
  • Your forms will be sent to your Head of School and your employing Trust so that your return can be planned effectively.
  • Once you have returned to your training post you can review your return period and progress with your Educational Supervisor.
