This section provides relevant information for trainers, or those looking to become a trainer.
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:
- Form R and Revalidation information
- Health and Probity Declaration
- Trainee Assessment Form
- Training Post Assessment Form
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.
ARCP Outcome 6
The process for issuing an Outcome 6 is available here.
Training Programme Directors will be required to complete a Workforce Development Plan each year, for the following year of training.
Please use this form to indicate what replacement, expansion or even contraction of specialist training posts the training programme would like, and are able to accommodate, in the following financial year.
NIHR posts should also be included on this form.
This year's forms should be completed and returned to Richard Balmer by 30th September 2017.

There are two windows each year where bids can be submitted for Future Leaders posts.

All Educational and Clinical Supervisors can access the MIAD e-learning package, which include the following modules:
- Appraisal of Trainee Dentists
- Supporting Career Development
- Educational Supervision
- Managing Trainee Dentists in Difficulty
- Workplace Based Assessments
These modules can be counted towards your verifiable CPD requirements and certificates will be provided. To request a license or reminder of your login details for MIAD, please email email@example.com.
In addition to the MIAD program, we will also arrange regular Training the Trainers workshops to cover suitable topics identified by Educational and Clinical Supervisors.
