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. All Specialty Trainees enrolled in a training programme must have an annual assessment.  This is necessary to ensure that satisfactory progress is being made in order for you to gain your CCT (Certificate of Completion of Training).
