    Further Information:


Evidence for ARCP

You will need to demonstrate at ARCP that you used your Advanced module to enhance your non-clinical skills in that field.   The panel will be looking at the non-clinical domains in your chosen Advanced Module in addition to your advanced clinical skills.


Personal Development Plan & Progress Reports

You will be required to complete a Personal Development Plan for your Advanced module:


Advanced Module – Progress report


This should be an agreed plan with your Educational Supervisor and reviewed at 3 monthly intervals. The Training Programme Director will ask to see your final progress report which he will add his comments.  This document will then be asked for as part of your ARCP documentation.

You MUST link all supporting evidence to the Advanced section (personal evidence) in e-Portfolio.    You will need to show these reports as evidence at your ARCP.
