To ensure the effectiveness of the ARCP process it is essential that the following documentation is available on the ISCP, it is a trainee’s responsibility to ensure that the documentary evidence is uploaded to the portfolio by the published submission date. Please refer to the ISCP for guidance on the number of Workplace Based Assessments that are required to be completed for your ARCP. 

Failure to complete the required amount of WPBAs or submit the documentation below could result in an unsatisfactory outcome.
