Statement published on 4th May 2020
We have published information about the alternative to the OSFA exit assessment for STP trainees completing their programme this year.
The alternative to the OSFA exit assessment for STP trainees completing their programme this year will be an activity which we are calling the Independent Assessment of Clinical Competence (IACC).
Statement published on 24th April 2020
In place of the OSFA, trainees will be required to submit a written critical reflection on their clinical competence and readiness to practise, which outlines how their experience and learning to date demonstrate how they meet the standards set out in the Academy of Healthcare Science’s Good Scientific Practice.
Our current plan is that this piece of written work will be submitted by a point in mid-July. Trainees will be given advance notice of the precise requirements of the written assignment in May.
Trainees and their training officers will be provided with further and more detailed guidance about the alternative final assessment next week and beyond.
