Severn’s F2 Regional Teaching Programme was established in 2007 and encourages foundation trainees to experience training as part of the Foundation School. The programme enables us to use faculty members who are keen to deliver proven educational material as required by the Foundation Curriculum.

The Regional Teaching Programme also offers an opportunity for trainees to network, which has always been recognised as an important part of professional development. The programme culminates with an Innovation Day offering foundation trainees at F1 and F2 level the opportunity to present their work and receive regional recognition.

The programme uses days from the study leave allocation.  Study Leave needs to be agreed and booked prior to booking onto courses.

Please note the booking system is currently offline, all F2's will be notified when it is back up and running. In the meantime, please provisionally book your study leave in anticipation, and register to attend below. Registered attendees will have their booking transferred to the new system, otherwise, bookings will be first come first served.
