Preparation exercise

Regardless of whether you are attending on 13th October or not, you are requested to carry out the standardisation exercise. This time the exercise will focus on professional review question preparation, as opposed to completing a portfolio assessment.

Attached below you will find information that would be provided in a professional review scenario. The Professional Review Standards and Guidance document is also attached for your reference. Please use the information as you would when preparing for a professional review and note the questions you would ask.

Your notes will be collated and forwarded to your verifier for analysis and for group discussions on 13th October. Please note that the focus of the exercise is to discuss appropriate professional review questions rather than a critique of portfolio assessment reporting.     

The deadline for this exercise is also 26th SEPTEMBER, to be returned to Shohreh.golfard@apm.org.uk on the preparation sheet provided.

Payment for carrying out this training exercise is not chargeable to APM.


We look forward to seeing you on 13th October and continuing to work closely with you. If you have any queries relating to any of the information above, please contact Shohreh.golfard@apm.org.uk in the first instance.
