F2 Sign-off

Foundation Programme Completion Certificate (FPCC)

Picture of a pen lying on paper

It is the responsibility of the Foundation School to produce the end of year competence form for trainees.  F2 doctors who have successfully completed their F2 training year and have achieved an ARCP Outcome 6 will have a “Foundation Programme Completion Certificate (FPCC)” form created for them.  This form serves as an end of year certificate, and will be signed-off by the Head of Foundation School.


  • F2 doctors will have their FPCC certificate released on their e-Portfolio by the Wessex Foundation School team once we have received notification from your employing Trust that you have achieved an ARCP Outcome 6 and the ARCP has been electronically signed by the F2 doctor. 

  • The F2 doctor’s e- signature triggers the creation of the FPCC certificate on the e-Portfolio. Without a signature, the FPCC will not be auto-generated.

  • A copy of the completed FPCC certificate will be retained on each trainee's e-Portfolio account for future reference and can be printed off by the trainee. An electronic copy will also be kept on file at the Foundation School.

  • This form will need to be produced as proof that a trainee has completed F2 training when applying for specialty training.   

  • Wessex Foundation School will no longer print hard copies of the “Foundation Achievement of Competence Document (FPCC)” 


The Wessex Foundation School will not provide an F2 trainee with their FPCC certificate until the following have been completed and submitted -

  • Form R  - complete and submit on ePortfolio
  • F2 Destination survey – complete via Survey Monkey link which will be sent out in June
  • Electronically sign ARCP Outcome form within 10 days of ARCP review
