The workshop aims to assist candidates to have a better understanding of the requirements and techniques in solving the written practical problems of the APC using critical and analytical thinking. It also aims to provide a forum for candidates to know more about the assessor’s expectation in assessing candidates’ practical experience and professional competence achieved through the written assessment, diary & logbook and PQSL. The workshop will focus on discussing the ways in identifying the key issues in different types of questions and on expected answers from previous papers, and the focus on the diary & logbook and PQSL. Discussions will be held in small groups, each headed by an experienced assessor. Interaction is expected between assessors and candidates. Topics will include both pre- and post contract issues.
With the implementation of the new APC system in July 2011, a general introduction of the QSD Part I and Part II assessment will be provided. Candidates are encouraged to attend the workshop to get familiarize with the new Part I and Part II assessment.
