Supporting training

Our clinicians and staff ensure the quality and rigorousness of every exam and assessment for trainee paediatricians. We facilitate groups to generate questions and scenarios and use the Standard Setting Angoff process to review questions one final time after the exam. Here's how we support those who support trainees.

We plan to introduce a new two-level, run through specialty training programme by 2023, ensuring it is flexible, fulfilling and fit-for-purpose.

With a focus on learning outcomes, RCPCH Progress ssets the standard for the skills, knowledge and behaviours that paediatricians need as they progress through training.
Our exam questions go through various quality controls from when they are ‘pulled’ for use in upcoming exams right up to the end when they are graded after an exam.
We oversee an active programme of research related to paediatric education and training - covering our theory and clinical exams, assessments, recruitment, revalidation and curriculum.
