Quality and Standards team

We set standards in paediatric education and training through the development and quality assurance of curricula, examinations and assessments.

We are an experienced team of professionals with a wealth of skills and backgrounds, who are passionate about driving quality improvements in paediatric education and training.

  • The core team develops and manages the postgraduate paediatric and SPIN (special interest) curricula, supports the College Tutors, works with Deaneries/LETBs to ensure quality in education and training, and ensures adherence to GMC standards.
  • The question board sub-team develops theory questions and exams for the MRCPCH (membership exam), and scenarios for RCPCHStart (assessment). We also organise the Examination, Assessment and Recruitment Boards.
  • The psychometric sub-team undertakes standard setting and analysis for the exams and assessments, as well as carrying out and publishing wide-ranging research supporting the work of the Education and Training division.
