Annual Review of Competency Progression - England


The Annual Review of Competency Progression (ARCP) process is the means by which doctors in training are reviewed each year to ensure that they are offering safe, quality patient care, and to assess their progression against standards set down in the curriculum for their training programme.


It is also the process through which their full scope of work review is undertaken to satisfy revalidation requirements.


The below animation provides a short and simple guide for trainees and trainers to how the ARCP process should take place in England. It also outlines what it does, and does not cover, and how to get additional support.

These tools follow a year-long review of the ARCP process by Health Education England. Read the resulting report and recommendations on their website.
