I’ve been referred and was looking at template 7 and am unclear as to whether I fill out experiences only for the competencies highlighted in the referral report or refill everything?

Question: I’ve been referred and was looking at template 7 and am unclear as to whether I fill out experiences only for the competencies highlighted in the referral report or refill everything?

qow2Answer: If you have been recently referred (less than 3 years) then the requirement for a Graduate Route Candidate is to submit the following:

Template 1 – Updated to record number of referrals and previous referral report title etc
Template 2 – Updated by selecting the dropdown (top right, in green) noting you are referred (less than 3 years)

Template 3 – Do not amend but will be submitted
Template 4 – Do not amend but will be submitted
Template 5 – Do not amend but will be submitted
Template 6 – Do not amend but will be submitted

Critical Analysis – New or Updated based upon the assessors decision, see the referral report

Referral Report – From last assessment ONLY

Template 7 –  You need to provide detailed information about what you have done, since referral, to mitigate the issues that arose in your referred competencies, as stated in your referral report..

I would also advise you to write up what you have done against each Level to the minimum required Level you are declaring. For example If you were declaring Level 3 and your referral said you only achieved Level 2, I would write up Level 1, 2 and 3 again for that competency demonstrating what you have learnt, achieved and advised upon since referral.

As an aside, there is nothing in the APC guide that deters you from adding more detail, in template 7, about your other competencies, that were deemed OK last time, if you feel more information would be of benefit and relevance for the assessment panel.

Template 8 –  With any referral there is also the issue of Professional Development (CPD for Grad 3’s and above) and I would strongly advise you to focus your Professional Development, as much as possible, on the competencies you were referred on.

I hope this helps

Kind regards
