Different format types as evidence of competency


As 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.

Content types include:

  • 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
