Study Leave

You can apply for Study Leave through Intrepid Leave Manager. Please visit the Curriculum Study Leave webpage.

Study leave entitlement is 30 days per year, but from this allowance, all teaching and events organised by the programme, such as Wednesday Day Release, must first be deducted.

E-learning and audit are thought to be more appropriately undertaken in your independent learning session in GP. It is unlikely that you will get study leave for these.

There is an approved list of activities that can be applied for and this decision is made based on regional criteria. Please see the list of approved courses below:

Important things to note:-

  • The Programme Team will discuss all study leave requests at the monthly business meeting.  This usually takes place on the last Wednesday of each month. 
  • It is essential that your study leave requests are submitted well in advance of date (6 weeks minimum).
  • For attendance at PSU or Perfect Day please select ‘Professional’ as the leave type.
  • It is not necessary to apply for annual leave via CSL (Curriculum Study Leave).  Please apply for Annual Leave either direct with your practice if in a GP Placement or with your Medical Workforce Officer if in a hospital placement.
