To ensure the effectiveness of the ARCP process it is essential that the following documentation is completed (including signatures) and uploaded to the ePortfolio system by the published submission date.The trainee's learning portfolio provides the evidence of progress. It is the trainees responsibility to ensure that the documentary evidence is complete in good time for the ARCP. Please ensure that your ePortfolio is up to date in preparation for this ARCP; the panel will be reviewing all ePortfolios prior to the day of the assessment. Please refer to the Royal College of Ophthalmologists for guidance on the number of Work Place Based Assessments that are required to be completed for your ARCP. Failure to complete the required amount of WPBAs or submit the documentation required can result in the assessment not going ahead and the trainee being issued with an unsatisfactory outcome. Trainees should note that any assessments completed after the submission date may not be counted towards their annual ARCP.

Trainees should read the Royal College of Ophthalmologists website and familiarise themselves with the recommended target stages of achievement of learning outcomes; this provides a basis for monitoring progress at the ARCP. Trainees should complete the documents appropriate for their stage of training.

The review will chart your progress to date and will identify any specific training needs for the future. The results of the review will be recorded on the ARCP form, copies of which will be sent to you and the Royal College with the original being retained by Peninsula Postgraduate Medical Education in your training record file. We advise that you share the information relating to your ARCP outcome with your Educational Supervisor to facilitate further Educational Supervision.
