Less Than Full Time (LTFT) Training


Applying for LTFT Training

Submitting Applications

We are pleased to announce that from Friday 19th January we will be moving to a new process for managing LTFT applications and queries.

The application form is now one online form rather than separate paper eligibility and approval forms.

  • LTFT trainees will only need to apply once to train LTFT and will no longer need to complete an approval form upon each rotation.
  • LTFT trainees will only need to complete a new LTFT form, on returning to full time work or increasing/decreasing the number of sessions they are working.
  • TPDs, educational supervisors, medical staffing and finance at trusts will no longer need to sign approval forms.
  • No signatures are required on the online application form.
  • The process will be the same for both London and KSS trainees, there will no longer be different forms to fill in for London and KSS placements.

Frequently asked questions have been created to answer the majority of straightforward LTFT questions immediately and are listed here

Should the frequently asked questions not answer your question, you can submit an enquiry which will be responded to within 5 working days. To submit an enquiry please click onto any of the FAQs and submitting a query at the bottom of the FAQ.

Future applications will be managed via the LTFT section of the trainee support portal. The application form can be found here.
