Getting the right balance of experience – by Jon Lever FRICS

Getting the right balance of experience

As the APC is based on your competency experience it is hard to know whether you are on track if your diary and log book are not up to date. It is a good idea to write up your diary and log book  weekly, including a balncedetailed description regarding your experience.  We suggest writing a sentence or two for each diary entry, sufficient to remind you about what you were doing. This will help you identify any competency experience where you are deficient.
Maintain regular communication with your employer so you can discuss ways to tailor your experience to fill the gaps.  Your diary is an important document and may be requested by your APC assessment panel, so make sure you keep it up to date.
