We have developed a portfolio for our SHOs in Calderdale. It does not
contain the standard tick box of procedures/conditions etc. Instead we ask
the SHO to do a SWOT analysis of themselves before the first appraisal. Then
there are sheets used for their three appraisals (first few weeks, half way,
end of job). We use free text to document comments about knowledge, skills,
interpersonal skills/attitudes and end each appraisal with a free text
action plan for learning. There is also a sheet for their log of teachings
attended and their critique of each session. Finally, there is a sheet that
allows them to critique the post at the end of the job. There are also the
standard front pages with details of previous posts, career intentions,
courses/exams attained etc.

If anyone is interested, I would be more than happy to email this portfolio
to them. Contact me OFF LIST and I will send you it.

Subject: SHO learning needs assessment

Is anyone using logbooks/portfolios or any other tools
for SHOs to inform the training process? Or do we all
simply ask them in their first appraisal what they
want and add our own advice?
RCP have quite an advanced process. FAEM has no advice
on the website. Anyone know what the FAEM advice on
how to do this is, if any?
