Protected Learning Time (PLT)

Training Hub PLT Sessions

C&P Training Hub recognise that some focused learning opportunities could be helpful for practices and PCNs during Protected Learning Time sessions. We will therefore be providing interactive learning sessions aimed at the whole practice team and developed for MDT learning from September.

Each of the Training Hub PLT sessions includes a live webinar, hosted by local topic specialists, together with an associated discussion guide for practices to facilitate a group learning session, and links to online resources and tools.

The sessions are designed to be accessed live and will also be recorded and available for a short period afterwards to support practices and PCNs who may already have plans for the scheduled dates. However we advise viewing these webinars by our local topic experts to introduce the topic and give local guidance and advice, prior to using the associated guides for further multi-disciplinary learning within your practice teams.

Practice discussion guides and resources will be available 3 weeks prior to live PLT webinars.
