Review of Competence Progression
As outlined in the UK Dental Core Training Curriculum, a review of competence progression forms part of the ongoing assessment process during the Dental Core Training year. An Interim Review of Competence Progression (IRCP) takes place mid-way through the training year and a Final Review of Competence Progression (FRCP) towards the end.
In the run up to the IRCP and FRCP, it is trainees’ responsibility to ensure that the key indicators around meeting with Educational Supervisors and Supervised Learning Event requirements have been undertaken and recorded in the Turas ePortfolio. The RCP panels will review the evidence provided in trainees’ ePortfolio and record outcomes as outlined in the National Curriculum.
Following the FRCP, certificates will be awarded to those DCTs who have met the National and local requirements for successful completion of their Dental Core Training year.
