Lock down of E-portfolios ahead of ARCP

Dear Trainees

Re: lock down of eportfolio ahead of ARCP

We have received a number of queries about the lock down of the eportfolios ahead of the Summer ARCP date. 

All ARCPs will be conducted in absentia.

It is required that evidence is available for the panel to review 2 weeks ahead of the ARCP panel, as a panel member will review the portfolio ahead of the in absentia meeting and they need time to undertake this. The College eportfolio has been designed to lock 2 weeks ahead of the in absentia ARCP date, which is in line with the national Gold guidelines. 

You would be required to enter the correct date as your ARCP date. If you enter a later ARCP date you may still be able to upload evidence, but you will be at risk of the panel members missing evidence for your ARCP review and the electronic sign off not working correctly if it is not reset before the in absentia panel meetings.

We cannot alter the national guidance, but will try our best to take into account additional evidence available up to the day of the ARCPs, however this is very difficult to make fair for all trainees if we do not follow the cut off points.

Best wishes
