Weekly Release Programme

Stevenage STGP Weekly Release Programme


Information:

Image                               Weekly Release Programme

There is a half-day release on Wednesday afternoons at 2 -5pm at the Education Centre for the whole group of 36 trainees. This runs throughout the year and is arranged in 3 academic terms. We have good support from hospital consultants to allow attendance, and a major benefit of the Wednesday afternoons is that it allows trainees at different levels of the scheme to meet and learn together.Image

The programme is based on the GP curriculum but has a strong emphasis on learning needs identified by the trainee group. Please see above for examples of the teaching programme:
