Patoss Mentoring: Pre-APC Reports

Available to members only for £165

Please note: Once you have signed up for Mentoring you will not be assigned a mentor for approximately 3 weeks due to high demand.

Intended for those approaching renewal of their Assessment Practising Certificate (APC), this package allows you to review report-writing skills prior to submitting the report as part of the renewal process.

Pre-APC Reports, used properly, provides structured guidance on areas for focus or improvement. It cannot guarantee you a successful APC renewal (that is rightly up to you!) but we have found applying guidance in your subsequent APC renewal report is likely to lead to a more positive outcome.

Best practice is, rightly, evolving all the time meaning that you may need support in keeping your reports valid and up-to-date. You can use this package to check practice, interpretations, conclusions and recommendations.

Included in the package:

  • Access to a personal Professional Practice Mentor for one month (equivalent to one hour per week); this is time to validate your practice, check over a recent report, and iron out any imperfections. Contact take placed by email, telephone and Skype. [Note: A report discussed during mentoring cannot be used for an APC renewal.]
  • An opportunity to increase the likelihood of a successful APC renewal and produce an up-to-date report in line with evolving best practice, as a model. No other CPD opportunity can offer this.  Please note that time for the mentor to review a report and prepare feedback is included within the four-hour programme.
  • An annual subscription to the Patoss Professional Practice Community forum: i.e. one year’s continued support on the monitored forum.


This CPD is SASC approved and counts for 4 hours of CPD credit.
