   Course Detail

Intended for those approaching renewal of their Assessment Practising Certificate (APC), this package allows you to review report writing skills prior to submitting the report as part of the renewal process.

Pre-APC reports, used properly, provides structured guidance on areas for focus or improvement. It cannot guarantee you a successful APC renewal (that is rightly up to you!) but we have found applying guidance in your subsequent APC renewal report is likely to lead to a more positive outcome.

Included in the package:

  • ·         Online access to a personal Professional Practice Mentor for one month (equivalent to one hour per week); this is time to validate your practice, check over a recent report, and iron out any imperfections. [Note: The report used in your renewal must be a different one, independently produced.]
  • ·         An opportunity to increase the likelihood of a successful APC renewal and produce an up-to-date, exemplar report in line with evolving best practice, as a model. No other CPD opportunity can offer this.
  • ·         An annual subscription to the Patoss Professional Practice Community forum: i.e. one year’s continued support on the monitored forum.
