What do I put in a training plan?


What application is a Training Plan for?

A Training Plan is a compulsory document for a Limited AHPRA application, Post Graduate Training & Supervised Practice (ALPS-30)


What Goes Into It?

The document needs to explain the purpose, duration, location, content and structure of the training. It also needs to explain what assessments will be undertaken as a part of the training to measure progress.


It is important to think about yourself (or the doctor you’re hiring) when you’re building a training plan. It should be customised to their specific gaps in knowledge and interests.


What do all those words mean?

Each section should clearly outline the:


  • Purpose: What do you want to achieve from the training to be undertaken? What is the end result or the goal to be accomplished?
  • Duration: How long will the training go for? The intent is for this to be completed within the first 12 months of your registration.
  • Location: Where will the training take place? Will it be in person or online?
  • Content: What will be included and where will the doctor get the information?
  • Structure: How will the doctor know what is to be completed and in what timeframe?
  • Assessment: How will the supervisor be testing the doctors knowledge and ensuring the work is being completed?


IMPORTANT: It is important to complete the training plan in the allocated time otherwise AHPRA will hesitate to renew your registration.
