Trainees will maintain a portfolio which includes evidence of training: learning agreements, workplace based assessments (WBAs), evidence of completion of audits and research and evidence showing attendance at relevant specialty courses and meetings. The portfolio will be reviewed at each ARCP (Annual Review of Competence Progression) and in its entirety at the final ARCP in ST8, prior to the recommendation of the award of CCT. All trainees need to register on the ISCP website to access the new curriculum and to start creating their web-based portfolios. Please contact the help desk for queries relating to the ISCP website.

ST3 trainees are required to have an interim review after six months followed by an annual review. The interim reviews are usually held in February/March each year.  The annual reviews take place in June/July each year and you will be notified of the date and documentation required by your SPC at least eight weeks in advance of the review.

ST4 trainees and above will only have an annual review generally held in June each year and will be notified of the date and documentation required by your SPC at least eight weeks in advance of the review.


Your SPC will email you to notify you of the date of your ARCP and the documents you will need to complete and upload to ISCP by the ARCP deadline.
