New Trainee Portfolio - Frequently Asked Questions

When is this coming in?

We plan to launch the new Portfolio nationally in August 2020.  There are plans to run a pilot in Wessex Deanery in early 2020.

How will this affect me?

The Portfolio will look different. The core functionality will remain the same although we plan to enhance many of the features. 

Why do we need a new Portfolio?

The current ePortfolio is now outdated. We were getting many requests for enhancements that were not possible on the old system. The new Portfolio allows us much more control as well as new features such as an app.

What benefits are there for me?

The new Portfolio is easier to use and will save time for both trainees and trainers. There are new features that you will benefit from, including a mobile app to add and edit log entries. You can also create log entries from emails. Assessments will be much better managed. These are just a few of a whole host of improvements.

  • Easier to use: Built around a modern Portfolio platform that is used by thousands of GPs across the UK.
  • Mobile app: Record learning logs and review existing entries on the go. Even if you don't have an internet connection.
  • Track your progress: Are you on track for your next ESR? Have you demonstrated all the required capabilities? See all this at a glance on your new Dashboard.
  • Powerful features: Built-in artificial intelligence which automatically scans your entries for sensitive data that shouldn't be included.
  • Save time: Fewer pop-up boxes to read, and fewer clicks to access key areas of the system.

Do I need to change to the new system?

We expect that everyone will be changing to the new system in August 2020.

Will my data be safe on the new Portfolio?

Yes, the new Portfolio provider is ISO certified which requires them to maintain the highest standard for data protection and information security. All data is stored on UK servers and backed up.

Can I sign up now?

Please note that the new Portfolio is not due to be launched nationally until August 2020. FourteenFish offer a "try before you buy" policy for other products and services they offer like their Appraisal Toolkit. This does not include the new RCGP Trainee Portfolio.

Will this coincide with the WPBA changes?

Yes, it will, since we can’t easily implement the new assessments in the current Portfolio. However the trainee is halfway through a year we may not force them to switch. More discussions needed in the WPBA group. More information about the new WPBA developments can be found here.

Will I need a new login?

If you have an existing RCGP login, this will transfer to the new Portfolio.
