The RCPCH offers guidance for all paediatric trainees in approved training posts on workplace-based assessments/SLEs and AoP, including DOPS, ePaedMiniCeX, ePaedMSF, ePaedCbD and DOC.
Assessments must be completed online using ASSET
Trainees can view their completed online assessments via the ePortfolio and results will be uploaded each week to their ePortfolio account. Trainers will be able to see the progress of their trainees from within the ePortfolio.

Detailed guidance and information on each workplace-based assessment/SLE:
- Paediatric Mini Clinical Evaluation Exercise (ePaed Mini-CEX)

RCPCH Online Assessment Systems
Due to the iterative and collaborative way in which the College's online systems have developed over time to support trainees and career grade doctors, members currently have access to four online support systems. Members often ask why they are not amalgamated and how they interlink. Clickfor a summary of the links and future developments.
