Change to F2 Stand-alone Recruitment

The eligibility criteria for F2 Stand-alone posts has changed for 2020. Allocations at F1 level are to two-year training contracts. Trainees who have initially been allocated to two-year foundation training posts are encouraged to continue in their existing post for the duration of the programme. Foundation Programmes are balanced to ensure trainees experience a range of specialties and healthcare settings. In the past when F1 trainees have been able to apply in open competition for F2 Stand-alone posts, programmes have been disrupted and trainees have not been guaranteed to rotate through a range of placements in line with the curriculum. We have also found that the availability of training places at F2 level has often not met the expectations of current F1 trainees, particularly those seeking to move to London, as very few places arise at F2 level in the more popular locations.

The recruitment process to F2 Stand-alone posts is designed to provide a route of entry to training in the UK for doctors who graduate overseas with full registration, and would otherwise be ineligible to apply for the two-year Foundation Programme at F1 level.

In light of the change in person specification criteria, the Inter-Foundation School Transfer (IFST) process has been liberalised to include additional criterion. This process will also be managed centrally moving forward to ensure accessibility and continuity of process for trainees. F1 trainees who have had a change in personal circumstances since their initial allocation have the option to apply for an IFST. In the first instance, trainees are always encouraged to liaise with their clinical and / or educational supervisor to consider options for adjustments to programmes in line with their personal circumstances. It may be that there are mechanisms of support available within your existing foundation school and / or employing organisation that could assist your situation.

Any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the UKFPO team.
