Foundation Programme Directors

Foundation Programme Directors work in collaboration with Postgraduate Organiser(s) and the Centre Manager(s) to ensure the Foundation Programme is delivered within the LHB, to deliver career guidance, provide and review internal quality control information and acting on results as necessary and to ensure that the interests of Flexible Trainees, Trainees with Special Educational Needs and Trainees with Performance issues participating in the Foundation programme are respected and protected.

FPD may also arrange placements for trainees with special educational needs when necessary.

In managing performance problems Foundation Programme Directors are often best placed to liaise with LHBs and the Deanery when a performance concern regarding a Foundation Trainee are raised.
