A – The 4 webinars are run as group sessions. However, Applicants are encouraged to ask questions, either directly during the webinar or by contacting the Facilitator via email for specific queries.
Q – What 1:1 support is provided?
A – Applicants will have access to a dedicated 20/20 Facilitator for the duration of the Support Programme. Applicants are provided with Word templates to populate with the required information and these documents are submitted for review on a regular basis. The 20/20 Facilitator provides 1:1 feedback, normally via comments or tracked changes and all documents are saved in the 20/20 Learning Assistant (an on-line learning portal). Email support is available throughout the Support Programme.
Q – What documents and supporting materials will I be given?
A - Joining Instructions are issued prior to the start of each Support Programme. The JI’s include copies and/or links to documents that ChPP Applicants will require access to during the programme. APM documents can also be downloaded directly from their website.
Q - Is 6 months to complete the application process realistic?
A – Yes and no. We have some Applicants who have completed all the written documents within 4 weeks of starting the programme, whilst there are other people who have found the timescale too demanding (normally due to their projects or day job) and have needed more than 5 months to prepare their materials.
Q - Will delegates submit their project overviews/word summaries for the dedicated 20/20 facilitator to review and provide feedback on?
A – All Applicant materials will normally be reviewed by a 20/20 facilitator prior to people uploading the information in to the APM on-line submission form. Our 20/20 facilitator will provide feedback on all items submitted for review.
Q - What help is given to delegates for their CPD log?
A – Applicants are briefed on the CPD requirements for ChPP and a review of the CPD Log is included in the Support Programme. However, there is currently no requirement to upload a CPD Log when applying for ChPP Route 1 or 3.
Q - Will the practice interview be structured like the APM one?
A – Practice interviews are carried out via Skype on a 1:1 basis and follow a format very similar to the APM ChPP interview process. Questions are asked on professional practice (& technical knowledge - Route 3 only), with the questions designed to relate specifically to each Applicant’s Project Overviews. The practice interview includes ethical questions.
Q – Who is the 20/20 Facilitator for ChPP?
A - The 20/20 Facilitator will normally be David Coombes, who obtained ChPP in October 2018. David has been a 20/20 Associate Consultant since April 2017, is the Lead Facilitator for ChPP and he currently has a 100% success rate for coaching ChPP Applicants.
Q- After I have achieved my ChPP status, what do I need to do to maintain it?
