i do not think so. Staff grade jobs are primarily service oriented and not career progressing as known. Within the new system i do not think emphasis on integrating staff grds with reference to exams has been looked at as yet. I may be wrong but it would be helpful to hear oherw views.

Hi

Does any one clearly know whether staff grades can give exam in this new system.

I have 24 months SHO training by July07 and started FTSTA2.

But I want to join Staff grade job, I got offer recently, from 1st Nov 2007.

I am assured that it would be training staff grade.

I have already emailed Royal College

Thanks

Royal college says staff grade posts can only be recognised after 18 months of approved training. so ur staff garde job should be recognised.

u might be better off by getting prospective approval for the post by writing to Anne Bird at the RCPsych with ur job description and a official timetable which should include slot for regular 1 hour(I think) supervision with the consultant and attendance at an academic programme. attendance at a MRCpsych teaching will make ur application stronger but I dont think its is compulsory.
