RCPCH Progress curriculum

With a focus on learning outcomes - not tickboxes - our curriculum sets the standard for the skills, knowledge and behaviours that paediatricians need as they progress through training.

The curriculum has 11 domains, with learning outcomes for each training level. Syllabi provide further requirements and help you demonstrate achievement of the learning outcomes.

We explain how Progress works - and how to use it as you throughout your training. Videos introduce you to the curriculum, and demonstrate a supervisor-trainee scenario.

For those in level 3 training, you will need the syllabus for your sub-specialty (also called 'grid' training) or general paediatrics. We manage 17 paediatric sub-specialties.

Domain of the month - Education and training

"I thought that education was all about how to give good tutorials or lectures, but it's more important than that." Dr Lauren Filby talks three key areas related to this curriculum domain.


Help us develop our domain resources

We are now creating resources for the other domains:

  • Communication
  • Procedures
  • Patient management
  • Safeguarding

Can you write a case study or create a short a film to explain how you've used a domain in your work? It's a great way to highlight your achievements and support your colleagues!
