What if I want to work less than full time?
Please see Less Than Full Time Training information on our website to ensure you are eligible to apply.
If you are trying to enter specialty training but are unable to train full time, you may apply for less than full-time training (LTFT), providing you can show that training on a full-time basis would not be practical for you for well-founded reasons. Well-founded reasons may include, for example, disability, ill health, carer’s responsibilities, religious commitments and unique opportunities for personal or professional development.
Less than full-time training must meet the same requirements in specialty and general practice training as full-time training, except that there will be fewer hours of work per week.
Please note that you will need to secure a full time post in open competition before you can make an application to work LTFT. You should apply for eligibility in a LETB/Deanery ahead of this and indicate your desire to work less than full time on your application form.
