Portfolio Layout

The exam board expect portfolios to be presented in a specific format.  This will be available below to download.  All candidates are encouraged to use this information to ensure they are remaining 'on track' with their learning.  

ANS are proud to launch two new standalone examinations. They offer greater flexibility in the training scheme while maintaining the same high standards appropriate for the professional body. 

A mentor will be assigned to all applicants to provide support in the development of the portfolio (containing work-based evidence). This is followed by a final practical competency exam

The two new exams will be for EEG and NCS/EP and are individually driven and arranged as required.


  • ANS members £500
  • Non-ANS members £695

For further information on these new exams please contact Opens window for sending emailAnn Harvey (Chair of Exams) or Opens window for sending emailPeter Walsh (Chair of Education).

STP - The Scientist Training Programme

Considering supporting a trainee through the Scientist Training Programme (STP)?

The Modernising Scientific Careers (MSC) Scientist Training Programme (STP) is now well established and effectively provides a training and education framework across all HealthCare Science (HCS) professions. It combines work-based training with an academic qualification (MSc) from an accredited University.


Helpbook for Training Centres

Good quality training is important to all of us. It ensures that we get the best workforce for the future, highly skilled and prepared for professional practice and demonstrating the correct values and behaviours. It gives the trainee an effective and stimulating training experience.

OSFA guidance for Assessors, Station Writers and Training Officers for 2014

The Objective Structured Final Assessment (OSFA) is a tool for assessing the practical skills that trainees are expected to have mastered just prior to registration as a Clinical Scientist. The content of the OSFA should reflect the tasks trainees complete, and the skills they use, on a routine basis in the workplace – both subject-specific and generic skills.
