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.
