If you have not contacted APM and you wish to attend, please email jessica.deane@apm.org.uk by 12th April so that the venue can be informed of numbers. 

Attendees need to bring a copy of their completed portfolio assessment report for the exercise below, and are requested wear their RPP Assessor name badge to the event.

In line with contractual obligations, assessors are reminded that attendance at a minimum of one conference is required per year. The next event is scheduled for Tuesday 22nd October 2013 at the same venue in London. 

Neither attendance nor any preparation work is chargeable to APM (with the exception of reasonable travel expenses)  

The full agenda for 26th April 2013 is:

09.30  Refreshments & Networking

10.00  Welcome/Housekeeping/Actions from October Conference (BDC)

10.15  RPP Progress/Updates (APM) 

10.45  Mock PA Activity (BDC)

11.30  Break

11.45  Mock PA Activity/Feedback (BDC)

15.00  Break

15.15  Mock PR Activity/Discussion (SS)

16.00  Q&A/Feedback

As with past events we expect assessors to work through a portfolio assessment as part of their commitment to ongoing training - a new case is attached at the foot of this article. This is a portfolio from a real RPP candidate and efforts have been made to anonymise it as far as possible. The candidate's permission has already been obtained.

Instead of only those attending the April conference, we now expect ALL RPP ASSESSORS to complete this standardisation exercise and return it to andrea.kallides@apm.org.uk BY 15TH APRIL. This will allow all results to be collated before the event so that more meaningful data can be produced.

ON THIS OCCASION WE ARE EXPECTING ASSESSORS TO AVOID SCORES OF 1, USING ZEROES AND TWOS ONLY - PLEASE BEAR THIS IN MIND WHEN CARRYING OUT THE ASSESSMENT.

Once again, completion of this exercise is required of ALL RPP assessors whether attending the April conference or not, and is vital for APM to maintain assessment standards.

PLEASE DO NOT RETURN THE COMPLETED REPORT FORM TO CUSTOMER SERVICES FOR THIS TRAINING EXERCISE - IT SHOULD ONLY BE RETURNED TO ANDREA KALLIDES 

Please contact Andrea if you have any queries. Thank you for your cooperation.
