2015 L-APC Commendations

Our L-APC assessors were asked to nominate candidates who had made particularly excellent L-APC submissions in 2015.  The nominated submissions were then judged by the RTPI's APC Advisory Panel. Five candidates were awarded an L-APC Commendation for 2015 and they have provided their top tips for the L-APC on their profile pages:

2015 APC Commended Candidates

Those working toward the L-APC may also find the blog The RTPI Assessment of Professional Competence: More than just a means to an end written by Dan Evans inspiring and useful.

Top tips of 2015 include:

  • Not rushing your L-APC and waiting until you have the experience to make a strong submission.
  • Keeping on top of the log book and cross-referencing it to the L-APC competencies.
  • Choosing case studies for your Professional Competence Statement (PCS) that you have had a lot of involvement in.
  • Putting enough time and thought into the Professional Development Plan (PDP) to ensure that your actions have a clear timeframe, are measurable, address your weaknesses and link to your goal.
  • Not simply seeing the L-APC as a means to an end and making the most of the opportunity to reflect on your experience and future development.

Please note: To stay fit for purpose, L-APC requirements do change over time. For the most up to date advice please always refer to the L-APC Guidance on the Licentitate APC webpage. Candidate details provided here are current at time of L-APC submission in 2015.
