The Foundation Learning Portfolio is based on the Curriculum for the Foundation Years in Postgraduate Education and Training.
The Portfolio is an individual’s record of his/her progress through foundation training and is the basis (for some) and a continuation (for others) of the ability to establish and maintain fitness to practice through reflection, identification of learning needs and continuing professional development.
The Portfolio provides the structure and paperwork (forms, templates etc) to help individuals understand the process of their training and plan their development. It also includes the formal assessments that must be completed together with guidance about other evidence that might be submitted to demonstrate competence.
From August 2007 the Peninsula Deanery introduced the e-Portfolio for all F1 and F2 trainees.
Trainees and Educational Supervisors can access the e-Portfolio at www.nhseportfolios.org.
A regular audit to validate submitted assessments is conducted by the Peninsula Foundation School at regular intervals throughout the year.
