Guidance on workplace evidence for HSST trainees

This guidance will help you when planning a submission and give you advice on collecting and creating evidence for your e-portfolio.


Over the course of the five years of the programme you are expected to produce and collate evidence of your training activity and submit it for assessment in your e-portfolio. When you submit evidence of activity for assessment in your e-portfolio you will be required to map it against the Higher Specialist Standards of Proficiency. By the time you are ready to exit the programme you should have evidence that you have met all of the Standards of Proficiency.

We recommend that you develop an assessment plan to help you map out which activity will be most relevant to your training. You may wish to schedule approximately one submission of evidence in your e-portfolio per month; 12 submissions a year, and approximately 60 submissions over the course of the five-year training programme.
