Please note that HEE working across Yorkshire and the Humber has published ARCP guidance relating to all Specialties: 

The Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP) will take place every year for every trainee.  We recommend that you familiarise yourself with the ARCP process as soon as possible, rather than waiting to be called for your ARCP.

Dates of upcoming ARCPs are advertised on this website. You will be given at least six weeks notice of your ARCP to ensure the necessary documentation is uploaded to your eportfolio. However, we recommend that you update your eportfolio throughout the year. You will need to have a completed Educational Supervisor's report and therefore please allow time to meet with your Supervisor prior to your ARCP.

Please make sure that you have made yourself aware of the ARCP requirements and have the most up-to-date RCOG matrix. All competencies must be met for you to be awarded an outcome 1.

Every day of your training must be covered by an ARCP. You will receive a non-assessment form for any period of time that does not count towards your training e.g. maternity leave, sick leave (more than 14 days). You will receive an outcome 8 for a period of out of programme that does not count towards your CCT.

There is a section on ARCPs on the RCOG website which may be useful for you.

It is your responsibility to keep a copy of each of your ARCP forms. You will need these when applying for CCT.
