The latest version of the Curricula (August 2016) is available on RCPsych and GMC websites and is live on Portfolio Online.
This update comprises of moderate changes, specifically related to the numbering of ILO’s, and is not an extensive or deliberate content re-write. As such it impacts immediately, new and current trainees alike. Going forward the online supervisor forms will soon be dynamically generated, based on the curriculum, and will be rolled-out as part of the next update.
For further information, feel free to contact Dee Noonan
We recently made an update to the system that adds support for “Revalidation Officer” access. This is a school based role, that lets a person view all of the ARCP documents for trainees in the specified school.
If there is someone in your school that needs this access then drop us a line at email@example.com for more information on how to get this setup.
(NB: Originally we had called these ‘Revalidation Managers’ but have subsequently updated the name of this role.)
A new release of PortfolioOnline has been in development for some time now. The beta version is available at https://beta.portfolioonline.co.uk so that you can preview the changes.
This version brings improvements to the searching/filtering of your portfolio, as well as improvements to the general navigation that should make it easier to move around your portfolio.
One of the most significant enhancements is being able to filter your curriculum coverage, allowing you to see it by training level and/or ARCP period.
NB: The beta version is connected to your real portfolio, so that you can see exactly how it will look. You can access it using the same login details and any activity on the beta version will be reflected on the current version. At this time we would recommend continuing to use the current version for Mini-PAT, WPBAs and Supervisor Reports.
We are working hard to make this release available as soon as possible. As this is a beta version you may find that some things are not working as expected. Our servers log all activity and collect information about any errors allowing us to track them down and fix them. Using the system and getting ‘something went wrong’ is of great help and would be very much appreciated.
If you would like to go one step further, then we would also be interested to hear any feedback you might have, in particular if you find that anything is not working correctly, or if there is something that you think is missing. Or even if it’s just to let us know that you like it! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and mention that you are testing the beta version.
