Quality Concerns and Change in Circumstances

The Faculty will aim to support all trainees to remain within their HEI and employer wherever reasonably possible to complete their course.

There are occasions where there is a genuine need for adjustments to be made to a trainee’s programme of study. The Faculty are able to offer additional support to the trainee, a trainee’s supervisor and employer and may need to act as a mediator with an aspect of quality concern that may arise.

At all times, safeguarding, welfare, quality and governance issues need to be considered.

Quality Concerns

The Faculty are committed that all concerns are managed in an appropriate and proportionate way. The process below outlines the steps for trainees, HEIs, advanced practice leads and other stakeholders to follow for resolution or alternatively raise and report concerns via the Faculty’s Quality Concerns Form

Change in Circumstance
If a trainee has a change in circumstance or if a resolution cannot be found during the Trainee Query stage, the Change in Circumstances Form should be completed and the Faculty will assess the request with appropriate support.
