NEW DATES! V-Space groups for SuppoRTT Trainees 


The PSU (Professional Support Unit) is pleased to announce new dates for the V-Space Coaching and Support Programme. V-Space is a virtual group space dedicated to support trainees who are planning to return to training or have recently returned to training after taking time out for a range of reasons, including maternity/parental leave, academic study, career break or medical leave.


“It was a great opportunity to express my current stresses within a group and find doctor-focused responses from the course leaders and members alike.”


The V-Space Coaching and Support Programme is a series of four group coaching and peer support sessions. The small groups meet online for 2.5 hours every fortnight and are led by a senior group coach from the Professional Support Unit’s Coaching Service. V-Space offers a supportive, confidential and structured learning environment for peer discussion. Each session draws on a range of practical coaching tools for self-reflection, goal-setting, enhanced confidence, stress management and leadership communication. 


V-Space features:

  • Semi-structured facilitated group coaching sessions
  • Guest speaker slots ‘in conversation with’ trainees who share their experience of returning to training
  • Peer support in small breakout room discussions plus WhatsApp group for connecting with peers in between sessions
  • Coaching tools & resources to support you as you move back into training.

Spaces are limited to 14 participants per group so please book early to avoid disappointment.
