Do you have some time to support the pipeline of future planners?

We have an exciting opportunity for Chartered or Fellow Members to become an Apprenticeship Professional Discussion (APD) Assessor.  Please register your interest if you would like to be involved in this new assessment method.  

By way of background, the Professional Discussion (PD) is part of the End Point Assessment (EPA) process that Chartered Town Planner apprentices must complete before they can progress to the Degree Apprenticeship Assessment of Professional Competence.  APD Assessors work as a pair and following training, will be ready to undertake a 50-minute professional discussion with apprentices who have passed through the Gateway requirements of the Chartered Town Planner apprenticeship. 

Further details on the role and the commitment required can be found here.  If you are interested in being part of this new process, please email your latest CV to [email protected] and in your covering email please provide answers to the following questions:

  • Are you a Chartered or Fellow Member of at least three years standing?
  • Why would you like to become an APD Assessor?
  • What specific experience and skills do you consider yourself to have to undertake the role?

We are currently recruiting to expand our assessor pool for 2024.  Full training and support will be provided.

Recruitment is currently on an ongoing basis.
