Updated advice for trainees starting the PDS

Following a discussion at the PDS Managers meeting in June, the TPS Skills Team has updated its Advice Note for trainees starting the PDS.

This reflects the lessons learned from the programme of remote reviews conducted during the Covid19 pandemic. Remote reviews will be the default option for both first and final reviews from now on.

The revised Advice Note can be accessed in the ‘Advice Notes and Support’ section of the PDS Manager and Mentor area of the TPS website, here.

TPS Skills Director, Keith Buchan, said:

“This updated Note addresses some new questions on length of applications which we hope will help trainees to be succinct and to the point in their submissions. This benefits both reviewers and trainees. We’ve also pointed to how CPD needs to be approached and recorded, essential for PDS but also progress through to TPP. The Advice Note is short and we think essential reading for all trainees. We are excited that the PDS overall is now more active than before the pandemic and completions in 2022 should reach double figures. We continue to support our trainees and mentors who are at the heart of scheme in every way we can.”
