    • Specific to Steps proficiencies

      This section is specific to the Steps proficiencies framework, and is not relevant to other frameworks on the platform.

      Similar to the paper version, Learners are expected to first complete their Learning Contract before starting self-assessment of the proficiencies. This should happen via a discussion with the 3 stakeholders mentioned:

      • Learner
      • Lead assessor
      • Critical care lead nurse or manager

      The Learner will need to select Agree on behalf of all 3 stakeholders in their Learning portal (by selecting Review) following their conversation.

      Confirmation is then required from either the Assessor, Educator/Manager or Clinical Centre Manager.

      The individual who provides confirmation in the platform depends on the proficiency and the organisation:

      Learning contract proficiencyConfirmation required
      Learner responsibilitiesAssessor. In some organisations, this may be your Educator/Manager or Clinical Centre Manager
      Lead assessor responsibilitiesEducator/Manager. In some organisations, this may be your Assessor.
      Critical care lead nurse / managerClinical Centre Manager. In some organisations, this may be your Educator/Manager.

      Note: The Clinical Centre Manager will need a dual-role in the platform (as also an Educator/Manager or Assessor) in order to be able to confirm in the platform. Otherwise someone else with either of these roles could confirm on their behalf.

      Confirming agreement to Learning contract

      Once the Learner has selected Agree in their Learning portal and sent to you for confirmation, you will receive an email from noreply@dls.nhs.uk with the subject "Self Assessment results review request", requesting that you agree to the Learner contract

      1. Select the Click here link in the email


      1. Go to the Supervisor Dashboard (via the Supervise application) in the platform and select the Learner’s request in your to do list

      2. Select Review for the proficiency with the Confirmation requested status

      If the confirmation status is Pending confirmation, this means it has been sent to a different Educator/Manager or Assessor for confirmation, and you will be unable to confirm it.

      3. Select Agree, type the First name and Last name of who you are confirming it for (yourself or whoever is performing that Lead Assessor role) and select Save and continue

      4. Once confirmed, the confirmation status will update to Confirmed on both your and the Learner's Proficiencies home page

      The Learner will also receive a confirmation email from noreply@dls.nhs.uk
