Dental Trainers.

This section provides relevant information for trainers, or those looking to become a trainer.   

Application for Additional Educational Investment

All requests for non-recurrent funding should be submitted via ERIC in the first instance. 


Each trainee will be reviewed, at least annually, and their progress assessed as per the Dental Gold Guide (2016).

Training Programme Directors, Clinical Supervisors and Educational Supervisors will all have a role within the ARCP process. Further details on each role, as well as the timeline, is available here. 

Information on how the ARCP is conducted and composition of the panel is available here.  

As well as the evidence of their curriculum requirements, via either ISCP or paper, trainees will be required to complete:

Academic trainees will also be required to complete a report on their academic progress with their Academic Supervisor. 

The Educational Supervisor's report should be completed on ISCP for trainees on ISCP. The paper Educational Supervisor's report is available for here for trainees not on ISCP. 

The Clinical Supervisor reports will feed in to the Educational Supervisor report and the Educational Supervisor is responsible for collating this feedback.
