Each module of the IBMS Registration Training Portfolio (Version 5.0) will retain a total of 3 pieces of evidence. It is expected that across the 3 pieces of evidence, all HCPC SoPs assigned to the module will be demonstrated, and each piece of evidence will be clearly mapped to specific SoPs. Evidence 2 and 3 will be a free choice for candidates and their training officer, which should ensure flexibility, creativity and new ideas for evidence to be incorporated. Examples of evidence types, resources and further support will be provided by the IBMS, including at the formal launch of the IBMS Registration Training Portfolio (Version 5.0) at Congress 2023.

We have previously released a simple mapping document to show where the updated HCPC SoPs will be in the Sections and Modules of the updated portfolio. The stipulation of one piece of mandatory evidence for each module of the portfolio, follows consultation with the Registration Training Portfolio working group, National Pathology Network colleagues, plus Placement Tutors and Programme Leads for IBMS Accredited programmes across the UK. Each mandatory piece of evidence has been designed to demonstrate the HCPC SoPs indicated in the summary table here. The mandatory pieces of evidence should cover the indicated HCPC SoPs as a minimum. However, additional SoPs may also be demonstrated, depending on laboratory context.

The rationale for introducing the mandatory pieces of evidence is to provide a scaffold for training plans and improve consistency in demonstrating proficiency against the updated HCPC standards at the point of registration.
