  • There are a number of different procedures in place to ensure that trainees are properly supported throughout their training.
  • Trainees are allocated a “Buddy” from the year ahead who provides advice and mentorship during the first year. Each year has a Reflective Practice Group, with an external facilitator. Each trainee has a Personal Tutor assigned from the teaching staff who will meet with them over the three years. This allows for continuity of support and also provides the trainee with a resource for personal support, should the occasion or need arise. An Independent Personal Advisor from within north London is also available. Trainees can approach these individuals for confidential advice. Trainees are also able to access the Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Scheme, and the Black and Ethnic Minority Scheme, which have been established jointly by the three north London Courses. Counselling services are available through the University or the Employing Trust, and a list of private therapists who trainees may approach is provided by the Course.
  • Any disclosure of disability is treated with sensitivity and within the bounds of our confidentiality policy. We liaise closely with the Royal Holloway Educational Support Service and with the employing NHS Trust to ensure that an assessment of need and subsequent reasonable adjustments are made for trainees with disabilities.
