Step 2: Search for a trainee in the search box.
Step 3: Click the link to the trainee's account.
Step 4: Click on 'ARCP' on the trainee's portfolio card.
Step 5: Click on '+Schedule ARCP'.
Step 6: Select a review date.
Step 7: Check the review period.
The review period for this ARCP which will be either one calendar year following the prior ARCP, or in the absence of a prior ARCP, one year preceding the review date.
Step 8: Click on 'Schedule ARCP'.
Trainees should ensure they have a folder for each level of training in their portfolio e.g. CT1, CT2 etc. These folders will have a start and end date specifying the time period they cover. Any folders which overlap with the ARCP period will automatically be included in the review.
