All trainee registrars will have a consultant who will be their educational supervisor for the entire year while at a particular hospital. 

The trainee will have 3 appraisals by the educational supervisor spread throughout the year - start, mid and end of attachment. The educational supervisor will be the trainee’s first port of call if any training issues arise. 

The trainee will also have a number of work based assessments (WBA) which many will be familiar with during core medical training. Trainees are strongly encouraged to start competing the WBA as soon as possible. 

Trainees will have Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP) on a yearly basis to ensure all requirements have been achieved.
