The majority of trainees are capable of self-directed learning and progression within the positive, supportive and encompassing training environment that exists across the School.
The programmes are designed to deliver the Royal College of Pathologists curriculum and all trainees will be assessed against these parameters.
However, part of the quality assurance of this progress is the regular and dedicated assessment and appraisal framework that exists. This is designed to reassure trainees, and to provide feedback to trainers, helping to direct specific areas of training. The process is also enables the School to identify any areas of development, and thereby amend training programmes as necessary.
Overall, assessment and appraisal are set to encourage and support trainees in striving for excellence.
