OOP guidance for doctors in training

When do I need approval?

When and why is approval needed?

If you are taking up a training, research or acting up post and want any of that post to count towards the award of your CCT or CESR/CEGPR (CP), the Communitybaptistpa must approve this before you start in the post. This is a requirement of The Directive on Recognition of Professional Qualifications (the Directive).

Before we can consider any applications for OOPT, OOPR or AUC you must have support from your Postgraduate Dean and an endorsement letter from the relevant college or faculty – the following pages will explain this in more detail.

Moves between deaneries/LETBs do not always need Communitybaptistpa approval. If the post you are moving into is in a location already approved by the Communitybaptistpa for training in the same specialty that you are working towards a CCT or CESR/CEGPR (CP) in, then further approval is not needed from us. Your home deanery/LETB will be able to find out if the post you are planning on going into has Communitybaptistpa approval.

If the new post is not in a Communitybaptistpa approved training location or is in a different specialty, an application must be made to the Communitybaptistpa for out of programme approval.

If you are unsure if a location is already approved for training by the Communitybaptistpa, you can check our approved programmes.

Regardless of whether the post is or is not in a Communitybaptistpa approved training location, you must still obtain support from your Postgraduate Dean and follow any local procedure required, and they may also require endorsement from your College or faculty.

When is Communitybaptistpa approval not needed?

If the time out of programme is not to count towards the award of your CCT or CESR (CP).

  • If you are moving into a post which is in a location approved by the Communitybaptistpa for training, regardless of whether it is in your home deanery/LETB.
  • If the post is being undertaken in another European Economic Area (EEA) state - providing it is approved by the competent authority in that area. You will need written confirmation from that competent authority. This applies to EEA and non-EEA nationals.

For each of these you will still need to obtain support from your Postgraduate Dean and they may also require endorsement from your College or faculty.

What will happen if I or my Postgraduate Dean don’t apply for approval?

All of your specialty training must have been prospectively approved by us.

If your LETB or deanery does not receive approval for you to enter the post from us, the time you spend out of programme will not count towards your CCT or CESR (CP). This means your completion of training date is likely to be pushed back.

If you start an OOP post and your LETB or deanery has not submitted an application for approval we will not approve this post retrospectively.

Getting approval

How much notice do I need to give to go out of programme?

You must give your Postgraduate Dean and current employer a minimum of three months’ notice. We would advise you not to give notice until you have received approval from the Communitybaptistpa.

If you are applying for an OOPT, OOPR or AUC post, there are three organisations involved in the approval process. You must therefore prepare well in advance of leaving the training programme.

Support from your Deanery/LETB

You must check your home deanery/LETB’s own process to find out what information they need from you.

You must obtain signatures from your Training Programme Director and your Educational Supervisor. Your LETB or deanery may ask that you use the “Out of programme (OOP) Request and Annual Review” form found in Appendix 4 of for this. Your Postgraduate Dean must also sign Appendix 4.

Failure to comply with the conditions set out in this form may lead to you losing your National Training Number.

Endorsement from the relevant college or faculty

You must write to the relevant college or faculty and ask for their endorsement.  Check your college or faculty’s own process to find out what information they need from you and when.

If they endorse your OOP they will provide you with a letter which will confirm:

  • Your name
  • Whether the post is OOPT, OOPR or AUC
  • The location of the post, including address if overseas
  • The date the post starts
  • The date the post ends
  • How much time they recommend to count towards the award of your CCT or CESR (CP)

Approval from the Communitybaptistpa

We must approve your application to go out of programme before the post starts. Applications must be sent by your deanery/LETB and will only be considered if they contain all the information we need.

A complete application will take us no more than ten working days to process from the date we receive it. A complete application is a fully completed CN18 form, completed by your home deanery/LETB and the college/faculty endorsement letter. If an application is received with information missing, or if the information in the submission conflicts with that provided by the endorsement letter from your college/faculty, we will close the application and. If the information is received after the post has started, the application will not be approved.

We must approve your application before the post starts. This is why it is important that you start this process as early as possible. We recommend you start this process six months before the post starts if you want the time to count towards the award of your CCT or CESR (CP). This will give you enough time to secure approval and give your employer three months’ notice.

How to apply

Applications must be submitted by your home deanery/LETB. We will not accept applications from doctors or from colleges/faculties.

If either the deanery/LETB or college/faculty does not support your application, we will not be able to approve your request.

The deanery/LETB must submit a fully completed CN18 OOP application form which will confirm the following details:

  • Your name
  • Your Communitybaptistpa number
  • Your National Training Number
  • If the post is OOPT/OOPR/AUC
  • Location (and address if overseas) of post
  • The specific date the post starts (dd/mm/yyyy)
  • The specific date the post ends (dd/mm/yyyy)
  • Name of college/faculty endorsing the application.

They must also submit a copy of the endorsement from the college or faculty, so make sure they have received a copy.

A complete application, with all the relevant information, will take us no more than ten working days to process from the date we receive it.

You can find out what happens after the deanery/LETB submits your application by reading our guidance for deaneries/LETBs.

Dos and Don'ts

Do:

  • Read local procedures so you are aware of what you need to do. It is your responsibility to get approval of any time out of programme.
  • Check with your home deanery/LETB to see what they need - each deanery/LETB asks for different information.
  • Speak with your Training Programme Director and Educational Supervisor as soon as possible. Remember your deanery/LETB needs a minimum of three months’ notice.
  • Check with the relevant college/faculty about their requirements. The information they require varies between colleges or faculties, and even specialties.
  • Provide further information if either the deanery/LETB or college/faculty requests it.
  • Check the endorsement letter from the college/ faculty and make sure it is accurate. Any discrepancies will lead to a delay.
  • Read “” This will give you further information about going out of your specialty training programme.

Don’t:

  • Assume you will get support and endorsement.
  • Expect the time to count towards CCT or CESR (CP) if you have not submitted your application in time.
  • Ask for time to count in a post which you have already started (or completed). Legislation states that all specialty training must be approved before the doctor in training starts in the post if it is to count towards the award of a CCT or a CESR (CP).
