YouTube guidance videos for anaesthetists in training

We have created multiple YouTube videos as guidance for anaesthetists in training, assessors and supervisors. We will be adding additional and updated content regularly.

The most recent videos, which address commonly reported issues and questions, are listed below:


The Platform is available to anyone who is a member of the College and wishes to log progression against the anaesthetic curriculum. This includes MTI, SAS, and Clinical Fellows.

Access to the platform is a benefit of membership and is part of your membership subscription. The Educational Supervisor’s Structured Report (ESSR) allows the panel to review what an anaesthetist in training has done over the review period. Panel members will also be able to review the user’s progress by accessing the ‘review curriculum’ page from within the form.

Yes, via personal activities, however, you will need to add supporting documents. Supporting documents can be added In one of the following formats: DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX, PDF, TXT, CSV, RTF, JPG, PNG.

The competences are an important aspect of the 2010 curriculum and its inclusion is based on suggestions from users. There is no requirement to get all competences (within a unit) linked.

We have leads for each region who have been closely involved in the development of the platform. Click here to find out who the lead is in your region.

For consultants and SAS doctors, a full User Guide on the CPD functionality is available below:
