Trainees who started specialty training on or after 1st August 2007 are required to use the Learning Environment for Pathology Trainees (LEPT) system.

The GMC has published a discussion document presenting themes for discussion and future development of assessment.

Proposals for discussion in this paper include the introduction of new terminology to distinguish between two purposes of assessment.The first is assessment used for feeding back on progress (formative) through Supervised Learning Events (SLEs).The second is assessment used to determine progress (summative) which would be referred to as Assessments of Performance (AoPs).The College will be looking to develop these in due course.
