CT & ACT National Conference 2019

CT & ACT National Conference 2019

The CT and ACT national conference is the dedicated event for RCP college and associate tutors.

Your role, their future

Building on the success of previous events, this 1-day conference has been designed as an open discussion on the changes to IMT and PACES, as well as a keynote presentation from Prof Sheona MacLeod of HEE.

The role of CTs and ACTs with IMT implementation has evolved in 2019, resulting in differences in the way that the role is undertaken across the nation. This conference will provide the opportunity to hear presentations from across the regions on how CTs and ACTs have realised these changes.

A full Q&A forum has been allocated to answer any questions on these changes.


RCP college tutors and associate college tutors provide invaluable and essential support to the RCP and our professional networks. The CT & ACT National Conference is the RCP’s showcase event for this vital work. It’s the place to meet colleagues, share your ideas, successes and learning. We have a great line up of sessions focusing on the IMT journey so far, an open forum discussing next steps, update on PACES 2020 and a keynote on the ‘business of education’ from the amazing Prof. Sheona MacLeod. Don’t miss it.
