This event will not tell you what to do with your life: what it will tell you is what the options are and how to successfully plan and manage your career pathway. It is an opportunity to consider the range of factors which are essential when planning your career, to hear about the experiences of former F2s and ask them questions. There are also practical workshops covering the application process and surviving selection and assessment centres.

By the end of the session all trainees will:
  • Understand the recruitment and selection processes for specialty and GP
  • Have heard from trainees in various specialties
  • Be aware of the pros and cons of taking a year out
  • Be familiar with a range of interview questions
  • Know where to find further information and resources
  • Have considered their skills, values and interests when planning their long term career pathway
Course lead:  Heather Samuel, Severn Deanery Careers Adviser

Severn’s Regional F2 Teaching Programme encourages foundation trainees to experience training as part of the Foundation School, enabling us to use the faculty members who are keen to deliver proven educational material as required by the Foundation Curriculum and also offers an opportunity for trainees to network, an important part of professional development. The programme culminates with an Innovations Presentation day offering foundation trainees at F1 and F2 level the opportunity to present their work and receive regional recognition.
