The following reviews are available on Portfolio Online:
- Induction Meeting
- Supervision Session
- Psychiatric Supervision Report (for trainees using 2022 curricula)
- Psychiatric Supervisor Report (for trainees using curricula prior to 2022)
- ARCP Educational Supervisor Summary Report
- Form R
The Induction Meeting Form can be completed by a supervisor at the beginning of a placement and contains fields for induction considerations that should be taken into account for the trainee, specific Key Capabilities or Competencies a trainee might develop in a post, learning methods that might be used and how the trainee might be assessed.
A trainee can request an induction meeting form be completed by a supervisor or supervisors can complete an induction meeting form without a request from the trainee from their own Portfolio Online account.
Supervision Session Form
Following a meeting with a trainee, supervisors may wish to write up notes in a Supervision Session document storing it electronically in both their own account and in the trainee's portfolio.
The Supervision Session Form is designed to record a summary of a conversation between a trainee & a supervisor along with any agreed further action.
One of the benefits of keeping these notes on the system is that a trainee can then comment on the document or create a follow-up PDP Item or activity to the review.
Trainees can prompt a supervisor to write these by requesting a review or a supervisor can complete a review on a trainee without a request from a trainee. These supervision session notes automatically feature on a trainee's ARCP Outcome Form so that ARCP Reviewers can access them easily during a trainee's ARCP.
If a trainee, or those with non-training portfolios, want to write up notes following a supervision session themselves, they can do this by adding an activity to their portfolio and selecting the 'supervision' proforma. Trainees should note that these forms will be stored in the trainee's portfolio, but will not automatically feature on a trainee's ARCP Outcome Form.
The Psychiatric Supervision Report (2022 curricula) & The Psychiatric Supervisor Report (for curricula prior to 2022)
- The 'Psychiatric Supervision Report' is the name of the new supervisor report that can be completed on trainees who have transitioned to 2022 Curricula. Trainees can still prompt a supervisor to write this review by requesting a review, which places the report on the supervisor's dashboard, but they no longer need to. The supervisor can generate the report themselves from the trainee's PSPDP page provided all performance ratings have been completed. How to Complete a Psychiatric Supervision Report for 2022 Curricula.
- The 'Psychiatric Supervisor Report' is the name of the report that supervisors complete on trainees who have not transitioned to 2022 curricula. Trainees can prompt a supervisor to write this review by requesting a review. It is designed to be initiated by the trainee so that the trainee can submit comments for the supervisor to consider when completing their parts of the form.
ARCP Educational Supervisor Summary Report
This report is written at the end of a training year or level and summarises a trainee's progress and achievements during that period. It is submitted to the Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP) panel.
Supervisors can complete an ARCP Educational Supervisor Summary Report on a trainee from their own Portfolio Online account. Or a trainee can request a review be completed on them by a supervisor.
The ARCP is a review in which judgements are made about a trainee's progress against curricula and a decision is made as to whether or not a trainee is ready to move on to the next stage of training. The whole ARCP process can be completed online on Portfolio Online. For more information and step-by-step guides, see The ARCP online.
The Form R has two parts, Part A & Part B
- Part A asks for personal and contact information and is used to maintain the accuracy of data.
- Part B asks for information about your recent scope of practice, time out of training, and declarations relating to revalidation. This information informs the ARCP Panel to comment on your fitness to practice, which in turn informs the Dean’s recommendation to the GMC about your revalidation.
