Pre-registration training grant


An ophthalmic contractor who is providing supervision of the training of a pre-registration optometrist is able to make a claim for a pre-registration supervisor training grant. 

The allowance paid to contractors is set out by the Department of Health on an annual basis, and PCSE processes these claims in behalf of NHS England.
