Trainee's portfolio 'used as evidence against them' in legal case


10:07 you have it exactly right. HEE say we "must continue to write reflections, especially when there are things that do not go well." True reflection in the name of learning has to be honest self-interrogation with admissions of mistakes, which are a natural part of our job, but that is GOING to be self-incriminating, and if no-one will help us keep that confidential or protect us from that developmental process being used to hang us, then why the f*^k should we do it? Keep the portfolio as a friendly pastiche that HEE will like and that can't be used against us, keep true reflection to ourselves.
