Assessments, Appraisal (ARCP) and CCT

Throughout the various stages of training trainees will have to demonstrate competence progression through completing assessments. At the end of each academic year (and, on occasion, at other times) the Trainee will undergo an Annual Assessment of Competence Progression (ARCP). Provided the outcome is satisfactory, trainees will be allowed to progress to the next stage of training.

This can all get a bit confusing so this section of the website aims to cover all you need to know about how your training will be assessed and appraised, and how you go about applying for a CCT at the end of your training. Please choose one of the topics from the selection boxes below.
