Record your learning

Your career portfolio should assist you throughout your AHP Support Worker career. It will also act as an ongoing record of your achievements.

Your portfolio can help to clarify boundaries of roles and allow space for recording formal and informal learning throughout your career.

Demonstrate progress

Your career portfolio can be updated and added to throughout your career as you progress your knowledge and skills.

It is not designed to replace clinical competencies as these are identified within your organisation and specific to your role.

Help guide your career

Use your career portfolio alongside your annual appraisal and supervision to guide your career journey.

This will ensure that annual appraisals and objectives align with your overall career objectives.
