PSU Referral Form
Please read before completing this form
The Professional Support Unit (PSU) is now able to accept referrals from senior educators who are concerned about those exceptional trainees who have not self-referred to us, for whatever reason, despite signposting and encouragement. We continue to prefer self- referral wherever possible, as this is in keeping with the principles adult education and trainees taking responsibility for their own learning.
The form below is for the use of Heads of School and TPDs to make a referral in situations where there is significant concern and every effort has been made to encourage self-referral without success.
The PSU will let the referrer know the outcome of the referral, and share more detailed information with the approval of the trainee.
We hope that this mechanism will be useful in these rare circumstances, and we will monitor the process and report in due course on how effectively it is working.
