The Royal College of Physicians' (RCP's) workplace-based assessment courses are interactive 1-day workshops that will teach participants how to use a range of assessment methods in order to appraise competence and performance more effectively.
What you will learn

- use appropriate methods of assessment in a way that ensures reliability, validity, transparency, feasibility and educational impact
- provide good quality, useful feedback
- identify and maximise opportunities for workplace-based assessments
- overcome problems related to the assessment process.
It was useful as a trainee and as a trainer. Discussions from this workshop on how to give feedback systematically and how to deal with a defensive assessee […] were very practical and worth learning.
