The 'eligibility' section of the CT1 person specifications states that candidates must either be employed currently in a UKFPO approved foundation programme; or have a minimum of 12 months' experience after full GMC registration or equivalent in line with GMC standards / Good Medical Practice.
The experience must be gained by the advertised post start so it is possible to apply on the basis that you will have gained the experience by that time. This means that by August 2017, candidates must have at least 24 months experience working as doctor to be eligible (12 months pre-registration and 12 months post-registration).
If you are applying to CT1 while currently on the second year (FY2) of a UK/UKFPO-affiliated foundation training programme, you should be on track to have the minimum experience by the start date of posts.
If you are not currently employed in UK foundation training, you will be required to demonstrate you have gained, or are able to gain, the minimum of 24 months' experience prior to the intended CT1 start date (ie August 2017).
