As a holder of a recognised assessment against technical knowledge you will need to provide a written submission and interview against professional practice.

In order for you to do this you will need to provide evidence for this. There are three steps to this:

  1. Decide which competences you are going to provide evidence for - you will need to complete a total of 12 competences (nine are mandatory and two are elective from a list of 15).
  2. Give an overview (maximum 500 words) of up to four projects, programmes or portfolios that you will use to illustrate them.
  3. Write up to 250 words for each competence, referring back to the project overviews.

You will also be asked to declare that you have kept up to date through CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and give your proposers’ details. Your application will be assessed at this stage, and if successful you will be invited to an up to one hour interview covering:

  • Professional practice: validating your written submission
  • Ethics.
