Attention: New 2-part Trainer's Report Guidance for Trainees and Supervisors: May 2013
From Wednesday 15 May, a new 2-part Trainer's Report will replace the old one on ePortfolio. The new forms consist of an Educational Supervisor Trainer's Report and a Clinical Supervisor Trainer's Report. If you have already had an old Trainer's Report completed for the Feb/Mar - Aug/Sep 2013 rotation this will suffice for the ARCP round. For all trainees yet to complete a Trainer's Report, ensure you have one Educational Supervisor Trainer's Report completed by your supervisor prior to the ARCP round. If your Deanery advises you differently, please follow their instructions. If you have any questions contact your Deanery or the ePortfolio team (see both links below).
ePortfolio is the College's online learning tool for trainees and their supervisors to log their activities and monitor progress through the curriculum.
What is ePortfolio?
An online educational tool for trainees to record their learning in all its forms and settings. It facilitates their development and gives structure and evidence to support their training. For supervisors and Deaneries it helps structure WBAs and monitor progress and competency attainment for ARCPs. ePortfolio is the tool that holds together curriculum learning and assessment. You can access the system here: www.nhseportfolios.org
Who can have an ePortfolio account and how do I get one?
ePortfolio is mandatory for all ST trainees but is also available to SpRs and all non-training paediatricians in UK service posts. The only requirement is that you are a member of the College. Please register for an account here or contact email@example.com.
If you have been appointed as an Educational Supervisor by your College Tutor and require an account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who do I contact to update my ePortfolio?
The first port of call is your Deanery administrator. If they cannot resolve your problem then contact the College.

The curriculum enables the trainee to provide a robust and verifiable record of their achievement of the required competences. It is also an excellent learning tool to inform you of the expected competences at each level of training, chart your progress through the run-through training programme, and help identify your future learning needs and define objectives for your 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. All RCPCH Curricula can be found here.
