Foundations of Primary Care Chaplaincy – Additional Assessment

Optional Assessment following the Foundations of Primary Care Chaplaincy course

The Foundations course provides 12 hours’ of continuing professional development for anyone working or interested in primary care chaplaincy. A certificate of completion is issued after the training.

For those who are interested in, or who require, additional validation of their training, ACGP is offering an optional assessment element.

Further Details

On completion of the training, you will be required to submit evidence of your practice in the form of a recorded ‘role play’ chaplaincy session. This needs to be 20 minutes in length and can be either a video or audio recording, with a written transcript. Your recording and notes will be assessed by our trainers, and comprehensive feedback will be given. You will be issued with a certificate to confirm that you have completed this element. This is not a formal qualification, but provides extra evidence of competence to practice for your CPD portfolio should you wish to have it.

The recording must be submitted within 6 weeks of attending the training course. The fee for assessment is £60.00.

The Foundations Assessment Guidance gives further details on how to prepare, record and submit your assessment evidence and fee. You can also download a template to help you with your written reflection and the consent form to be signed by your ‘patient’ participating in the role play.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any further questions.
