Part of STP trainee induction 2020 – Webinar 2 – Work-based training and assessment

Different format types as evidence of competency

Last Updated: 17th September 2020

Think outside the box when creating your evidence.

As we indicated in the Do’s and Don’ts section, it is usually neither useful nor wise to think that competency evidence should be an extensive piece of written work. It is perfectly acceptable to submit a wide range of different types of content to evidence your competence, including:

  • Presentations
  • Witness statements
  • Reports
  • Podcasts
  • Photographs
  • Videos
  • Case studies and real-life scenarios, case-based discussions
  • Observations
  • Summaries of discussions and reflective accounts
  • Quality/health and safety incidents
  • Observations of practical tasks
  • Observations of patient interactions
  • Feedback and surveys
  • Involvement with patients
  • Attendance at training events and conferences
  • Attendance at meetings with minutes showing contribution from trainee
  • Work as a STEM ambassador
