Trainees who started training on 1st August 2007 may transfer to the ePortfolio; however it is not mandatory for them to switch over if they wish to continue with paper-based assessment. It is imperative that this decision, to continue using paper assessments, is agreed with your local deanery/HEE local office and educational supervisor or programme director.
SpRs are not required to use the ePortfolio, however, if they wish to use it they can but, are reminded that the ePortfolio has been designed for StRs and therefore, includes the curricula relevant to them and the Workplace-Based Assessments. If they want to switch to the newer curriculum then this must be agreed beforehand by the deanery/HEE local office and Specialist Advisory Committee (SAC) for their specialty.
All trainees who started training on 1 August 2010 have been mandated to use the ePortfolio.
Non-Consultant Career Grade (NCCG), Staff and Associate Specialist (SAS) doctors, doctors in service grades and trust appointed International Medical Graduates (IMG) are also able to use the JRCPTB ePortfolio.
