Context: The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) e-portfolio provides an innovative support platform that includes an interactive curriculum, space and structure for focussed reflection, education supervision and personal development planning.

Objectives: To present the evaluation of the RCPCH e-portfolio pilot launch from Yorkshire.

Key Message: The e-portfolio contains several sections including an alert board and messaging system. A planning section allows trainees to work through the interactive curriculum recording their level of competence and experience within different areas of practice. There are structured sections for education supervision meetings. The personal development plan allows trainees to set SMART objectives and periodically review progress towards obtaining these. There are two reflective components of the learning portfolio. The first is the developmental log; in this section trainees record and reflect on critical incidents, education meetings, their own teachings and many other similar areas. The skills log allows trainees to record and reflect upon a range of practical procedures. The work-based assessments are uploaded regularly into the e-portfolio. Education supervisors and programme directors can maintain a database of trainees and access their portfolios remotely in order to assess progress in obtaining the required level of competencies through the trainee’s record of assessments, self-directed learning, reflection and education supervision.

Conclusion: The e-portfolio, although not an assessment instrument itself will underpin the review process of trainees in order to inform an annual review panel on the fitness to progress from one level of training to the next.
