Guidance for trainees
Squeezing Lemons during COVID-19 with Lisa Hadfield-Law
Lisa Hadfield-Law presents a 12 minute screencast to help trainers and trainees maximise opportunities for learning and developing their portfolio during COVID-19.
Lisa Hadfield-Law, the BOA’s Education Advisor, has produced a document about demonstrating generic professional capabilities during COVID-19.
During this pandemic period, many trainees will find it helpful to start preparing their portfolios to reflect requirements of the new curriculum. We have reviewed the GPC framework published by the GMC which sets out essential generic capabilities integrated into the new T&O curriculum.
Learning opportunities and ISCP recording
There will be some unique opportunities for learning over the pandemic period. Many members have asked about recording evidence on ISCP and Lisa has put together a quick guide detailing how to register assessors who do not have ISCP accounts.
JCST have also developed guidance for recording COVID-19 experience in ISCP.
