When signing off an ARCP Outcome Form, the form should be accessed directly from the account of the person doing the sign-off. Deanery administrators cannot sign off an ARCP Outcome Form. An ARCP Outcome Form can only be signed off by the Chair of the ARCP Panel or the Postgraduate Dean.
Step 1: Log in to your account on FOM PortfolioBuilder.
Step 2: Go to the page for your school or organisation (NHS Education for Scotland, NSOH, Defence Deanery or NIMDTA).
Step 3: Click on the 'Reviews' tab.
PROTIP: The filters on the left of the screen can be used to show ARCPs with a particular status or outcome. ARCPs with the status 'submitted' are ready for sign-off.
Step 4: Click on 'View Form' for the ARCP to be signed off.
Step 5: Select the capacity in which the sign-off is being made.
Step 6: Click on 'Sign off'.
Once signed off, the system will display a notice that the sign-off has been successful.
The account holder who completed the sign-off has the option to remove the sign-off at this stage if changes to the Outcome Form are necessary.
Once satisfied that the ARCP Outcome Form is accurate, deanery administrators must release the outcome to the trainee.
The trainee will then receive a notification on their dashboard to acknowledge the ARCP outcome by signing it off themselves.
