ST1 Eportfolio

  • The trainee e-portfolio is the online tool for recording learning and progression of your training throughout your time as a GPST. All assessments will be recorded onto it and progression through training will be dependent on adequate information being present
  • Following appointment to the GP training programme, GPSTs should receive an email from the RCGP. GPSTs need to register as an Associate in Training with the RCGP to use the e-portfolio. Please make sure you have done this before your induction training on the e-portfolio in August
  • Workplace Based Assessment (WPBA) is one of the 3 components of the MRCGP exam. Guidance is available at the RCGP website:
  • ST1s should complete at least 3 COTs/Mini CEXs and 3 CBDs in each 6 months
  • Trainees need to complete 2 separate MSFs in ST1
    The Multi-Source Feedback (MSF) – RCGP
  • If you are in a GP placement during ST1, you will need to have done a PSQ
  • You need a CSR for each post
  • The minimum requirement for Less than Full Time trainees is pro-rate to full timers
  • The Severn Deanery has specific recommendations on Learning Log – please take time to read through these. They can be found on the deanery website:
  • At the end of every year, there will be an ARCP (Annual Review of Competence Progression) in June or July (timings may slightly different for less than full time trainees or those who have had prolonged leave). Please make sure that your e-portfolio is complete and up to date before this (including all your CSRs for all your ST1 jobs, including your current post). The panel scruitinises your e-portfolio to make sure that trainees are developing the required competencies and skills and that the necessary evidence to support progression is present. Details of ARCP can be found at:
  • Severn Deanery has provided some useful guidance on how to prepare for your ARCPs
