A Guide to the Professional E-Portfolio for Trainee and Qualified ACPs

The SY&B Faculty of Advanced Practice recommends the use of an e-portfolio during training and post qualification. If practitioners are working within a specialty, they may have access to an area specific Royal College portfolio (eg RCEM) which is supported by the Faculty. In the absence of a specialty specific portfolio, the Faculty recommends the Practitioners e-portfolio (PEP).


There is an annual charge to register and use the e-portfolio. For trainee ACPs, the Faculty recommends that the Health Education England (HEE) Training Grant is used to fund this access.

For qualified ACPs, the Faculty recommends that a portfolio is used to evidence CPD. Access to the PEP is available on an employer or self-funded basis.
