Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP)

The progress of each trainee is assessed at annual review - this responsibility being devolved to the Training Programme Director (TPD) and the Specialty Training Committee (STC) for each medical specialty. This usually occurs in May/June for most trainees, but with interim reviews in Core Medical Training (CMT).

Following regular appraisal with the trainee, the Educational Supervisor will provide a report that is submitted to the TPD, and is lodged in the e-portfolio. It will record the competences achieved, as described in the blueprint (ARCP Decision Aids) - these should be achieved incrementally during the attachment, not all at the last minute! The ARCP is a remote, electronic exercise for the majority of trainees, utilising the e-portfolio. However, a 10% sample of trainees, plus those where progression is uncertain, will be required to attend a formally-convened ARCP Panel - where the TPD is accompanied by external and lay representatives. The trainee only meets the panel after its deliberations are concluded, to receive the outcome.

There are several potential ARCP outcomes, but most trainees will progress satisfactorily and receive an ARCP1 outcome. Other outcomes exist for those deemed to require remedial training. If the report from the Educational Supervisor is not available on the due date, or the competences not recorded in the e-portfolio, the ARCP Panel has insufficient evidence and therefore cannot award an ARCP1 outcome. The responsibility for the provision of this evidence lies with the trainee!

For more details of the entire range of ARCP outcomes, and of the ARCP process, please refer to the Gold Guide.
