LifeLong Learning Change over

Dear All,

As you will be aware the e-portfolio for trainees will be consigned to history within the near future.

Welcome to the replacement:

Lifelong Learning

The Lifelong Learning platform is almost ready to go live, the last bugs are being ironed out as we speak. A number of us from the school have had a chance to use it and it is brilliant. Like a breath of fresh air compared to the e-portfolio. Training required will be almost Zero. It is very simple to navigate and use.

When is this all going to happen? I hear you ask!

August 2018

All trainees will move over to the new platform when it goes live at the start of August. All new assessments should be done on the Lifelong Learning platform when it goes live.

The only exceptions will be the trainees due to have an ARCP in September as they will need to be tidying up their e-portfolio ready to be presented for ARCP during the August period. Even these trainees should start utilising the Lifelong Learning platform at the start of August for all new assessments.
