Mock Interviews

Training London, 9-26 May 2017

There is no better way to help you succeed in your final assessment than to experience a mock interview*

Please click "Book Now" and follow the required steps. You will be prompted to choose a date for your pathway from a drop-down menu.

This session allows you to experience an APC-style interview and to practise delivering your presentation and answering interview style questions on your competencies, ethics and professional practice.  It will also give you the vital opportunity to experience what the interview process is like and receive feedback from an experienced APC assessor, who will provide you with invaluable feedback on potential areas of improvement.

The mock interview will be based on the candidate’s case study and the submitted documents like it is during the final assessment.

Delegates are welcome and encouraged to record the interview on their own mobile device or video camera so they can later review their presentation and question responses, and further develop their skills.

Appointments are available throughout the day or afternoon, each lasting 1 hour.

What our previous delegates have said

Overall I thought the mock interview was the best thing I've done on the build up to final assessment in terms of preparation.
I just received my positive result and I believe the feedback I received during the day was invaluable. Best mock I have completed

Course Pre-requisites

Two weeks before the mock interview candidates must send:

In the session you will have:

  • Prepared a 10-min presentation based on your case study
  • Presented your work to a real assessor
  • Answered technical and ethical questions 
  • Received detailed feedback on your performance


Each session will last 40 min followed by 20 min feedback. The session will be divided as followed:

  • Candidate’s presentation (10min exactly)
  • Interview - assessing technical competencies (25 min)
  • Interview  - assessing ethics competencies (5min).

*The mock interview is for practice only. The outcome of the mock interview does not guarantee success in the APC final interview. The mock interview and the APC interview are entirely separate.
