  • Please note - PPEd definition

    There has been some confusion over PPEd & PE (Mentor) PPEd is a job title for staff in a linked L&D role , rather than the new term for Mentor (Practice educator) If you are a PE (mentor) you will need to wait until the course opens to all staff. Any early applications will be removed.
  • You should be either substantive staff, on a secondment, or have an active bank contract. PPEds are also included & may apply
  • Please enter your grade for tracking
