About Us

Foundation & Specialty Training Boards

The Foundation and Speciality Training Boards have an advisory role within the Deanery. They provide an expert overview of the programmes, information on curriculum changes, advice on workforce planning and a forum to discuss policy and other issues. Furthermore, the Boards provide expert input on curriculum delivery and the quality management of training programmes.

Each speciality grouping has a Speciality Training Board (STB) made up of Associate Deans, Training Programme Directors, College representatives, academics and trainees.

There are 8 Boards, covering groups of specialities and the Foundation programme.

Membership

Each STB is chaired by an Associate Dean or Director. There is a Lead Dean/Director for each speciality grouping and an administrative team. Therefore, wherever you are in Scotland there are lead Deanery people overseeing your training. If you are a Foundation trainee, you can refer to the Foundation School pages www.scotlanddeanery.nhs.scot/trainee-information/scottish-foundation-school/  for further information specific to you.
