Any NHS organisation can apply to host a trainee as a Lead Organisation. A lead organisation is the primary organisation / system which on behalf of themselves and the partner organisation(s) is responsible for sourcing the second placement and to ensure all placements provide the best opportunities for the trainee.
The lead host organisation generally will be the first placement, however this is not mandatory.
It is also possible, and actively encouraged, for lead organisations to work across the system to provide experiences in other areas, for example Primary Care. The trainee should gain experience in both an operational setting as well as strategic, and this is usually reflected in the individual placements offered.
Applications to host a trainee for the September 2024 will soon open. If you are interested in hosting a trainee for September 2024, please complete our Expression of Interest Form. We aim to be in touch with further details and information of upcoming engagement events later in the year.
The financial aspects
Organisations who would like to host trainees will be required to pay a contribution of £24,000 per trainee to cover the duration of their time on the Scheme.
It is the responsibility of lead host organisations to negotiate and recoup any costs to be apportioned to partnering organisation(s).
