Trainer Finance

The payments for practices/trainers/Educational Supervisors are as follows:

• Trainers Grant - £7,908 per GPST per/annum (paid monthly for the duration of the trainees placement with the Practice) via Capita. This payment is triggered by the Primary Care School when the trainee starts the placement. Please liaise with Jemma Waugh at the Primary Care School if any amendments to dates or for remedial training extension payments become necessary.

Please note that Trainer Grant payments are not made during periods of maternity leave. 

Trainer grant is paid up to 12 months whilst a trainee is on sick leave from a practice placement.

Less than full time trainees still attract full trainer grant payments.

Trainer grant is payable to LEETs (ST4's) at a reduced rate of one third of full grant.

• Trainers’ annual CPD grant - £750. This is sent to the practice by Health Education England Southwest.

• The GP Educational Supervisors’ payment in the South West Peninsula is £504 per trainee, per year, in ST1 and ST2. This is paid every 12 months. Educational Supervisor payments are not paid while trainees are taking time out of programme such as during maternity leave or long term sickness absence. In ST3 educational supervision is included within the Trainers’ Grant (see above).
