ARCPs can only be scheduled from a deanery administrator's account. How do I get a deanery Administrator account on Portfolio Online?
Step 1: Log in to your Deanery Administrator account on Portfolio Online.
Step 2: Search for a trainee in the search box.
Step 3: Click the link to the trainee's account.
Step 4: Click on '+Schedule ARCP'.
Step 5: Select a review date.
Step 6: Check the review period.
Step 7: 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.
A visualisation of the different stages of conducting an ARCP online using Portfolio Online along with a key to the different roles in the process can be found in our article The ARCP Timeline & Roles.
