Supervised Learning Event (SLE) Assessment Forms
Alongside examinations, the ICM CCT programme of assessment encompasses formative assessments (Supervised Learning Events) in the workplace, with a focus on trainee-trainer discussion and reflection to guide learning in clinical scenarios, and professional judgements used to demonstrate that trainees meet the standards expected of them at each stage of training, eventually leading to a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT).
The 2021 ICM curriculum purposeful move away from the ‘tick-box’ culture associated with workplace-based assessments alongside the shift from a competency-based to an outcomes-based curriculum. It is more clear what purpose assessments within the workplace serve within the overall assessment strategy, including how feedback from assessments contributes to decisions regarding progression of training.
Assessments within the programme have been carefully considered to ensure that they are valid, that is, each test has a clear purpose that is appropriate to the capability being demonstrated, and that the evidence base to support the choice of assessment methodology has been critically reviewed. Additionally, the assessment burden has been reduced where possible.
All of the new SLE forms are incorporated into the Lifelong Learning Platform (LLP), with StR and Trainer required to complete different sections of the forms. All SLE forms should be completed and approved via the LLP wherever possible.

2010 Curriculum Assessment Forms
Trainees completing their training on the previous 2010 ICM curriculum are expected to undertake Workplace Based Assessment (WPBA). These assessment tools were issued as part of the then-new curriculum manual in 2012 and subsequently updated in 2014.
Please note that whilst the ACAT is an accepted assessment for ICM training, the form and its associated guidance are created and maintained by the JRCPTB - the version used as part of the 2010 curriculum was last updated in 2010. Please click here for further information.
