Non-urgent advice: An intro to the ePortfolio
The ePortfolio is one of the components of Work Place Based Assessments. It is just as important as COTs, CBDs, AKT and the CSA!!! Engagement with the e-portfolio is therefore mandatory and highly crucial.
The ePortfolio is the one stop place that brings everything together. It is a place where your record your COTs, CBDs and other assessments and forms. BUT it is more than just a storage portal. It is a place where you can record your learning (via Learning Logs). These logs also contribute to the evidence towards your professional capabilities progression.
It will be regularly assessed by your Educational Supervisor and GP Trainer. It is your responsibility to keep keep it up to date. ARCP panels which decide whether you may progress in your training review your e-portfolio at least once a year.
Non-urgent advice: A new ePortfolio is coming
The new portfolio will be easier to use, and will save time for both trainees and trainers. There’s a mobile app so that you can record learning logs and review existing entries on the go, even if you don’t have an internet connection. You can easily check your progress towards your next ESR, and in general the system is quicker, slicker and should make things much easier and more helpful.
The new portfolio is going to be piloted in Wessex in early 2020, and the RCGP is planning for everyone to move on to the new system later in the year.
