Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP)

What is an ARCP?

You will receive an ARCP (Annual Review of Competence Progression) at least on an annual basis.  It is a process which enables you and the deanery to record that you are gaining all competencies required by your training programme at an appropriate rate and through appropriate experience.  It is not in itself a means or tool of assessment.

The Deanery will notify you of the dates of your ARCP, you will receive an email approximately six months ahead of your ARCP and then eight weeks prior to the date of your ARCP.
