Getting started with the Lifelong Learning Platform

Please revisit this page regularly, as we will be adding new and updated content.

Important Information and links

  • In April we deployed "Phase one" of our logbook feature improvements, marking the beginning of a series of advancements, intended to improve your learning experience. As we progress through the year, our commitment to excellence remains steadfast, and we will continue to enhance the platform's capabilities. Please click here to view the details of these logbook improvements.

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 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. You will be given the option to select if you want to make them visible on ESSR.

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:
