The FPH electronic portfolio (e-Portfolio) system provides Specialty Registrars with a central platform for the management of information and documentation on progression of learning against the public health specialty training curriculum (http://www.fph.org.uk/specialty_training) during their time in training. The e-Portfolio allows trainees to relate documentation and evidence to the curriculum and incorporates the ability to record various sign offs.
The information within the e-portfolio is the responsibility of the Registrar to maintain and keep up to date. The e-Portfolio is to be used in conjunction with the 2010 and 2015 public health curriculum and assessment systems. Policy on how training is organised and arranged can be found within the Gold Guide.
The training e-Portfolio is managed by the registrar who must reflect on and record their achievements on an on-going basis. The e-Portfolio system has NOT been designed to replace face-to-face meetings, or be used as the sole method of communication between registrars and supervisors, but is intended to be used as a complimentary tool to aid recording training activity.
Latest update – 18 May 2016
As part of our on-going effort to keep you updated on e-Portfolio developments, a new communication has been put together and circulated to all e-Portfolio stakeholders. The latest communication can be found below. For reference, we have also published all the most historically significant e-Portfolio communications below in date order.
Please note that passwords issued for the former e-Portfolio system will not work with the new system.
Prior to go-live, each person who had a login for the old portfolio will have been sent an automated email confirming the URL of the new e-Portfolio as well as their username and password. In the case of those registrars who were sent these after the initial data migration in November last year, the log-in details will be the same. If you are a previous user of the e-Portfolio and have not received your log-in, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dealing with Migration Anomalies/Issues
We are aware that there are some registrars who identified anomalies in the migration of their data to the new system. The Education and Training team are reviewing these on a case-by-case basis.
Manuals on the functionality of the new system are available for download. Many thanks to Anna Seale, one of the FPH e-Portfolio champions, who has created a series of video tutorials on the new system which can be accessed via the links below:
*Please note that some menu/page and link titles have changed since production of the video tutorials. In addition, deanery administrator access and Educational and Academic Supervisor Report and Learning Agreement Form functionality has been added to the system. Please refer to the latest user manuals for further information.*
In order to manage feedback, including any questions or issues you might have around the new system, we would ask you to contact your local e-Portfolio champion in the first instance. If they are unable to resolve your query, please email your query to
The below document templates can be used for ARCP’s. Please note that these documents are provided for guidance only – this is not a definitive list of all the forms that may be required at an ARCP. This should always be agreed locally between Trainees, Educational Supervisors and Training Programme Directors.
