Request for Advice from the SAC for a New or Modified Specialty Training Post


In accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding (appendix 9) Dental Gold Guide, the postgraduate dental education organisers (LETBs, Deaneries or equivalents) in the UK are responsible for managing specialty training programmes designed to deliver the dental specialty curricula approved by the General Dental Council (GDC); completion of which leads to the award of a Certificate of Completion of Specialty Training (CCST). They also manage post CCST programmes in orthodontics and paediatric dentistry approved by the Specialty Advisory Committees (SACs) of the UK Dental Faculties of Medical Royal Colleges.
Each SAC is required to keep a national register of trainees, including self-financed trainees and sponsored trainees. The register includes information on the trainees start and anticipated completion dates and progress through training.
This form has been designed as an aid to those seeking advice about new or significantly modified posts from the relevant SAC.
