The ability to take study leave is granted at a local level, but ideally should allow attendance at relevant courses. Personal study leave for examination revision is not generally granted. Arrangements for a trainee to attend RCPCH Examinations should be arranged, and a shift covered by a locum if necessary. Funds for study leave are provided locally by individual trusts to trainees, and are generally around the sum of £800 per year, although this varies is likely to change in the years ahead.
