APC Supervisor and Counsellor Guide (Half Day)

Training Manchester, 19 Jan 2017

If you are supervising or counselling trainees through their APC, this invaluable course will help you to understand the process and how you can best provide the support which they need.

The course will cover every stage of the process, understanding competencies and how to assess them, and what is required at the Final Assessment.

This course should be mandatory for Counsellors to attend before they are able to sign off APC candidates

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the APC process
  • Understand and articulate the role, responsibilities and requirements of the supervisor and counsellor
  • Differentiate between competency levels 1, 2 and 3
  • Understand what the RICS expects the trainee to be able to demonstrate at the Final Assessment and what they need to do to prepare
  • Understand what the assessors are looking for during the Final Assessment.

This course is designed for

  • Training managers
  • Supervisors 
  • Counsellors 
  • Other individuals who are involved in supporting trainees to develop their competencies. 
"The Becoming a Supervisor or Counsellor course enabled me to consider the process from a different angle and taught me some useful tips for planning the process with my candidate; I would highly recommend the course."
