Trainees will be emailed with their ARCP dates.

The Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP) is the means by which the progress made by a trainee is assessed and measured, based on the explicit use of evidence. Without such evidence, a trainee will not be allowed to progress in their training.
Trainees are required to have an annual review and you will be notified of the date and documentation required at least six weeks in advance of the review.

The deadline for evidence is one week prior to the ARCP date.

Please consult the ARCP decision aid and checklist prior to your ARCP.  Complete the checklist and upload this to your personal library.

You may also find the CMT section of the JRCPTB website useful.

Should you have any queries, please contact Laura West
