Trainees can send out requests for reviews to supervisors from their Portfolio Online accounts. The supervisor will receive an email notifying them of the review request. Supervisors with Portfolio Online accounts will also be able to access the reviews from their dashboard.
Step 1: Click on the '+ New Review' button on your Specialty Training Portfolio in Portfolio Online.
Step 2: Select the type of review (e.g. Supervision Session, Psychiatric Supervisor Report) from the drop-down box.
Some reviews require additional information such as a framework for the review.
Step 3: Click on 'Start Review'.
Step 4: Select the date of the review.
Step 5: Complete the sections on the form.
Any greyed out sections on a review are to be completed by the appraiser.
Step 6: Click on 'Submit' or 'Save Changes'.
Saving the form will mean the form remains in the trainee's account as a draft and will not be visible to supervisors until it has been submitted.
Step 7: Enter the email address of the person you wish to complete the review.
Step 8: Click on 'Nominate'.
Step 9: Click on 'Send'.
Review requests expire after 28 days and after this time can be deleted by the trainee if they are no longer required.
