How do I record credits for my role as an assessor or for setting exams?

If you are a GP trainer, ICGP examiner, tutor or assessor, you can record up to five research and teaching credits to reflect some of the time you spend in these roles. Each hour you spend undertaking these activities translates to one credit. While you may well exceed more than five hours, only five credits contribute towards 50 CPD credits required per annum.

This activity is recorded in your ePortfolio by selecting 'add an item', choose 'research and teaching' from the drop-down box, add a title, description, date and credits (calculated as one hour equals one credit) and save item.
