Trainees can allow other people to view their portfolio by granting them access as a supervisor. This gives trainees some control over who can view the information in their portfolio. The supervisory roles available on FOM PortfolioBuilder include:
- Educational Supervisor
- Clinical Supervisor
- Training Programme Director
- Post Graduate Dean
- Local HEE LETB/Deanery Administrator (NSOH Trainees Only)
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to create a 'Supervisor Relationship' in your ePortfolio.
Step 1: Open your Specialty Training Portfolio.
After logging in to your ePortfolio account, click on the link to your Specialty Training Portfolio. This is on your 'portfolio card' on the dashboard of your account.
Step 2: Navigate to the 'Supervisors' section.
When you view your portfolio, a second level of navigation opens allowing you to view different sections of the portfolio, one of these contains the supervisors that have access to this portfolio. Click on the 'Supervisors' tab.
Step 3: Add a new Supervisor Relationship.
Above your list of supervisors (if you have any) is an option to add a new supervisor relationship.
Step 4: Specify the type of supervisor you wish to register.
Here you can choose from the different types of supervisor roles available.
Step 5: Click on Add Supervisor.
Step 6: Enter the email address of the supervisor.
You'll be prompted to enter your supervisor's email address in order to create the relationship. The system may suggest e-mail addresses as you type.
Step 7: Click on Nominate.
If the email address you enter is already linked to an account on FOM PortfolioBuilder, then that account will immediately be given access to your ePortfolio. If the email address you enter is unrecognised, we'll send an email inviting the person to create an account.
