Foundation Competences

All applicants to CT1/ST1 posts are required to provide evidence of achievement of Foundation Competence within the 3½ years prior to the intended commencement date for the advertised post(s).

The acceptable methods for demonstrating foundation competences are:

Currently on a Foundation Programme

Applicants currently undertaking a recognised foundation programme in the UK which is due to finish in August 2019, will need to confirm the name of their Foundation School but do not need to submit any other evidence at the point of application. Any offer of a training programme will be conditional upon successful completion of the Foundation Programme and being awarded a Foundation Programme Certificate of Completion (FPCC) before August 2019.

Already completed a Foundation Programme

Applicants who have already completed a UK Foundation Programme will be asked to confirm that they have been awarded an FPCC or an FACD 5.2, signed no earlier than 3½ years prior to the advertised start date for the training programme to which they are applying. A scanned copy of the FPCC or FACD 5.2 MUST be uploaded to the Oriel application.

Currently on a Specialty Training Programme

Applicants currently in active clinical or clinical and academic practice in a UK educationally approved training post (CT/ST/LAT or equivalent), holding either a National Training Number (NTN) or Deanery Reference Number (DRN) will be considered as having had their foundation competences assessed on entry to their current post and do not need to demonstrate these again, regardless of when foundation competences were signed off.

Applicants in this category, who relinquish their NTN or DRN between the time of application and commencement will be required to submit a Certificate of Readiness to Enter Specialty Training for the period out of training.

Applicants who do not fall into any of the above categories will be required to submit a Certificate of Readiness to Enter Specialty Training signed by a consultant who has supervised them for at least 3 months (whole time equivalent and continuous period) in the 3½ years prior to the advertised start date for the training programme to which they are applying. Applicants may submit multiple Certificates, from different posts to show evidence of achievement of all competences. All submitted certificates must relate to posts undertaken for at least 3 months (whole time equivalent and a continuous period) in the 3½ years preceding the advertised start date. Scanned copies of the certificates MUST be attached to the Oriel application form. Original document(s) will be requested at a later date.

When submitting the Certificate/s, all competences must be signed as achieved at the time of application. Certificates will not be accepted where it is stated that outstanding competences will be achieved before the advertised start date of the post.

Certificates of Readiness to Enter Specialty Training will be accepted where the assessed post has been wholly undertaken in the 3½ years prior to the commencement of the training post to which the applicant is applying; even if the form is not the one dated 2019. Prior to 2019 recruitment, the certificate was known as the Alternative Certificate of Foundation Competence. These will still be accepted.
