The e-Portfolio & the ARCP

All of the evidence  trainees need to submit in advance for their ARCP is to be on their e-portfolio and assigned to that ARCP record no later than EIGHT days prior to the ARCP date.

The ARCP record is locked eight days before the ARCP and no further items can be added to it thereafter.

The ARCP panel reviews this ARCP record in the days leading up to the ARCP date and the trainee is informed of the outcome on the day of the ARCP.

For full details of the ARCP requirements for each stage of training see the Assessment page and follow the appropriate link.
