Guidance for supervisors

Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board (JRCPTB)Changes to specialty trainee assessment and review August 2014

Guidance for Supervisors

Revised system for assessment
Revised system for assessment

  • Change to how ePortfolio evidence is used to determine trainee progress

  • Aims to enhance learning through effective feedback and action plans

  • Applies to all core and higher medical trainees from 6 August 2014

  • ARCP decision aids set out the requirements for each stage of training

Work place based assessment
Work place based assessment

  • CbD, mini-CEX and ACAT tools to be used for supervised learning events (SLEs)

  • Trainees should actively seek feedback from assessors immediately following an SLE

  • Trainees and supervisors should formulate action plans and arrange follow-up

  • DOPS, MSF, teaching observations and audit assessments will continue in current format

Linking evidence in eportfolio
Linking evidence in ePortfolio

  • ePortfolio evidence should be linked to competencies to show learning and engagement with the curriculum

  • One piece of evidence is sufficient if it demonstrates a competency has been properly explored

  • ePortfolio linkages of SLEs should be limited to 8 for ACAT and 2 for mini-CEX and CbD

Linking evidence in eportfolio 2
Linking evidence in ePortfolio (2)

  • Trainees should self-assess and assign indicative ratings from the drop-down box for each competency explored

  • Ten of the common competencies will not require linked evidence in the ePortfolio unless concerns are raised

Sampling of competencies
Sampling of competencies

  • You should regularly sample and discuss with the trainee their linked evidence, ratings and statements in the ePortfolio

  • If the trainee’s reporting is appropriate you do not need to examine all competencies to determine satisfactory progress is being made

  • We recommend 10-12 competencies are sampled per training year. More will be required if evidence is considered inadequate

Educational supervisor report
Educational supervisor report

  • The educational supervisor’s report is pivotal to the ARCP process and should include a summary of multiple consultant reports (MCRs) and multi-source feedback (MSF)

  • Educational supervisors should report on engagement with the curriculum determined by sampling of evidence and competencies


The following resources are available on the JRCPTB website
