RCPCH ePortfolio is the College's online learning tool for trainees and their supervisors to log their activities and monitor progress through the curriculum.
For trainee paediatricians
RCPCH ePortfolio is an online educational tool to record your learning in all its forms and settings. It facilitates your development, and it gives structure and evidence to support your training.
The tool is mandatory for all run-through and non run-through paediatricians in UK service posts.
If you need ePortfolio, please register for training and apply for membership at the College - find out how to register
For supervisors and LETBs / deaneries
RCPCH ePortfolio helps to structure workplace-based assessments and to monitor progress and competency attainment for Annual Review of Competence Progressions (ARCPs).
If you have been appointed as an Educational Supervisor by your College Tutor and require an ePorfolio account, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org

We are working on several updates to improve functionality within the Kaizen ePortfolio.
The curriculum enables you as a trainee to provide a robust and verifiable record of your achievement of the required competences.
It is also an excellent learning tool to inform you of the expected competences at each level of your training, chart your progress through the run-through training programme, help identify your future learning needs and define objectives for your Personal Development Plan (PDP).
Please read the guidance document which explains which curricula to follow at which stage of your training. If you are not in the ST programme, you should make entries to the curricula applicable to the level at which you are working.

Annual Review of Competence Progressions (ARCPs)
Your LETB / deanery will inform you of what they expect to see in your ePortfolio at ARCPs. It is useful to be aware of these requirements early in the training year to avoid any surprises.
If you are unsure of these requirements, please contact your LETB / deanery administrator - find contacts for your region

Workplace-based assessments (WPBAs)
The RCPCH uses ePortfolio for all WPBAs and trainee data from the old systems (ASSET and NES ePortfolio) will have been moved across to the new platform.
If you cannot view your WBAs in ePortfolio please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Spring MSF round
Trainees can start their own MSF round as they would other assessments. Trainees must complete one MSF per training year. Trainees must get at least 7 responses to complete an MSF (excluding hte self-assessment), at this point trainees are able to close their round and generate a report.
If you do not usually need to sign in to ePortfolio, you will instead be able to give feedback via an email link.

If you do not have these available, please speak to your IT support department and raise it as a ticket with them.
We have also produced a workaround browser that can be downloaded and used as a short term measure - please speak to your Head of School if you need to arrange to download this.
