  • Your department has to release you for teaching.  If, for any reason, you can not be released, then you must complete an exception report, for more information contact Tracy Pook.

  • When you are released for teaching you must attend teaching and not use the time for personal matters.  You are welcome to take your lunch in to the teaching session - we kindly request you give yourself time to purchase/prepare your lunch before the start of the session and take any rubbish with you.  

  • You must sign in and out at reception, with your signature and times - without this information we cannot count your attendance.  

  • It is mandatory for you to attend 60 hours of all teaching sessions available, this is an ARCP requirement - this must be made up of a minimum of 30 hours core teaching with the other 30 hours made up of additional core teaching or non-core teaching.  

  • If you are late or have to leave early, due to exceptional circumstances, as long as you have attended at least 50% of the session (not including the break), this will be counted towards your 60 hours.  If you think you will be below the 50%, then you must exception report as non-attendance.
