Interim arrangements - recertification of Faculty Registered Trainer status

The General Training Committee will continue to recognise GP Trainers that hold Faculty qualifications who have applied for an FRT number, provided they continue to be recognised by the RCGP as trainers. All other FRTs (who are LoC MEd and PGA holders or who have been recognised by the equivalency route) will continue to require recertification of FRT status on a 5 yearly cycle. This will replace the requirement to recertify LoC MEd.

If you would like a copy of your responses (which can be useful, should you apply for other things in the future), please add your email address in the relevant field at the bottom of this form. 

The information you have shared on this form will be used by the relevant FSRH Committee and FSRH staff for the purposes of administration only. FSRH will keep this information securely on our systems. Our full privacy policy can be viewed here.

Show evidence of at least 1 peer observed teaching session in the 5 year cycle.

Documentary evidence for a peer observed teaching session should inclue:

  • Name and signature of observer
  • place

The peer feedback may remain confidential between the observer and the observed.

The FRT should discuss what aspects of their teaching they particularly wish feedback on before the observation, and time should be made available soon after the observation for a private discussion between the observer and the FRT.
