The Training Provider Accreditation Program describes the components that underpin the accreditation program.
Training provider accreditation will be a multi-staged cycle whereby:
- Training Provider assessment will occur once every four years
- rotations, Training Programs, Training Settings, and Training Networks will be assessed
- a Training Provider and its Training Programs will be assessed at a single point in time
- Settings and Networks will be monitored annually
The accreditation program will be underpinned by a new set of standards.
Trainee and educator feedback will be collected annually using online surveys.
Accreditation will monitor and manage capacity to train through an online platform.
Initially the RACP will assess the Setting, its Basic Training Program or Programs, and the rotations within the program.
Settings will self-assess their compliance with the standards at a Setting and Training Program level through an accreditation assessment form and rotation descriptions.
External assessors will assess compliance with the standards.
A findings report will be drafted, checked by the Setting, and reviewed by a committee of peers. The committee will determine the setting's accreditation status, which will be sent to the Setting and reported on our website.
The RACP will monitor the Setting annually to determine how compliance with the standards is being maintained.
