An ARCP can only be scheduled on FOM PortfolioBuilder by the deanery administrators for National School of Occupational Health (NSOH), NHS Education for Scotland (NES), Defence Deanery or Northern Ireland Medical & Dental Training Agency (NIMDTA).
If you need a deanery administrator account and don't have one, read our article: How do I get a deanery administrator account?
Step 1: Log in to your deanery administrator account on FOM PortfolioBuilder.
Step 2: Search for the trainee in the search box.
You can search for a trainee by name, GMC number or e-mail address.
Step 3: Click on the link to the trainee's account.
Step 4: Click on '+Schedule ARCP' on the trainee's portfolio card.
Step 5: Enter the ARCP review date.
The review date will default to today unless otherwise specified.
Deanery administrators may also want to change the review period. The system automatically displays information from the folders in the trainee's portfolio which overlap the ARCP review period.
Step 6: Click on 'Schedule ARCP'.
Once an ARCP has been scheduled, the ARCP date will show in the trainee's portfolio and an ARCP Outcome Form can be created.
The scheduling of ARCPs can be done by anyone involved in the ARCP review process at any time once an ARCP has been scheduled up until such time as the form is submitted and signed off. To find out how to do this, see our step-by-step guide: Complete an ARCP Outcome Form.
