RoC & Ethics Scenario Discussion: Gifts / Rewards?

Scenario 3: Gifts / Rewards and General ‘Thank You’s’?

APCeye+RoCEthics

You have come to the end of a really amazing investment deal and a client wishes to show you their grattitude for the work you have done.

In this scenario giving of a gift may be culturally acceptable (or not).

Would you accept a Lamborghini from the client?  What about a crate of champagne?

APC Final Assessment: What is the 80:20 Split in the assessment?

qow2Question:

I have my final assessment in July (date TBC).  We have been told that the content of the final assessment interview for PER is to be 80% based upon the content of our submissions, my question is, ahead of the workshop, can anybody give me any pointers on what to revise for the other 20%?

Answer:

PLEASE NOTE:  APC PER, Grad 1, 2, 3 & Adaptation 1 ALL have the similar percentage breakdown.

The 80:20 split is often quoted…  To tell the truth often the break between the two is not really that noticeable….

But, to give you some general guidance….

80% is on your declared competencies that you have clearly noted in your submission.  INCLUDING Mandatory Competencies and not forgetting the up to date knowledge (Level 1) and the REAL LIFE experience examples (Levels 2 & 3).

20% is on more general items such as Rules of Conduct, Ethics, Current Affairs, Latest BUZZ in the industry, awareness of the Institution, Your personal opinion on industry issues and trends (relevant to your pathway) etc.  A lot of this can be picked up from RICS Modus, Industry Journals and your professional Group pages on the RICS web site.

And that is about it… Hope this helps.

Kind regards
Jon

ALSO, why not get involved with the other candidates in our Ethical Scenario Discussions?  Here: https://apceye.wordpress.com/2013/04/06/roc-ethics-scenario-fee-bidding/

RoC & Ethics Scenario Discussion: Fee Bidding

Scenario 1: Fee Bidding

APCeye+RoCEthicsA client is engaging with 4 Surveyors to tender / bid for some work.  All parties have exactly the same brief.

The tender / bids are received and the client decides to discuss the opportunity to reduce the tender / bid with one Surveyor.  The client informs the Surveyor that they are their preferred Surveyor and if they could reduce their bid by £5,000 they would undercut the lowest tender / bid which is £12,000.  The client also reliably informs the Surveyor that they have another two projects lined up if they do this deal now.

APC Final Assessment Presentation Content?

qow2Question: 
Hi, am I right in thinking that I can focus on only one of my key issue in my presentation to give a detailed presentation on this area?  Or should I be less detailed in my presentation and base the presentation on my complete critical analysis document?

Answer:
The APC Candidate Guide clearly states:  “You will give a 10-minute presentation to the assessors on the purpose, investigations and conclusions of your critical analysis.”

Therefore it is a very simple exercise of presenting exactly your Critical Analysis.  It is also VERY important to remember that the assessors expect to see GOOD (No…! PERFECT) presentation skills.

This basically means that you can present the WHOLE or PART of  your Critical Analysis. But, please ensure you stay on topic because straying from what you have recorded in your written documentation will not bode well.

Remember you ONLY have 10 minutes, so to cram your whole Critical Analysis into this time may not work best for you and may be too much information for your audience.  Maybe, discussing one of your Key Issues in its entirety may be a better and more timely option for you (assuming you have written more than one Key Issue of course!).

There is NO NEED to bring anything new to the presentation because when we present we naturally embellish the written word and in effect the assessors are equally interested in observing a good presentation, well structured and delivered (interestingly not many candidates get this bit right!).  Don’t forget you are on test for your presentation skill and ability.  The Critical Analysis and report content should flow naturally.

So, the answer is… YOU CHOOSE… but whatever you do make sure you deliver on the day and to the specified time limit.
