ARCP (Annual Review of Competency Progression)arcp_panel_0.png

The aim of the Annual Review of Competency Progression (ARCP)  is to review, typically on an annual basis, the full scope of work of doctors in training to assess their progression against set standards, defined by their specialty training curriculum as well as against revalidation requirements. At your ARCP a designated panel will review the evidence you and your educational supervisor have provided, in your electronic portfolio, to determine whether you are progressing at the expected rate, or, at the end of ST7, whether you can complete your training and apply for a certificate of completion of training (CCT).

This year due to the unprecedented circumstances of Covid-19, the ARCP format and expectations were altered. As this ARCP cycle is now complete, this information has been archived to avoid confusion. See the archived document below for a more detailed explanation of the changes that were implemented for the June 2020 ARCPs.
