What happens when my application for assessment has been received (level 3 Diploma)?

Your details will be logged by the North Tees Centre and your request will also be sent to the lead APT assessor. Once the application window has closed, all candidates ready for assessment will be then be distributed between available assessors (dependant on numbers available and geographical locations) - this distribution process usually takes approx. 4 weeks:

 

  • For the 1st assessment period, applications must be received no later than end February

    • Approx. 4 weeks to allocate assessors (March)

    • Assessment period 1 commences April to May

    • Assessor reports retuned to the Centre by end of June

    • Internal verification by mid July

    • External verification completed before end of July

    • Final results from RSPH in August

    • Certificates issued in September

  • For the 2nd assessment period, applications must be received no later than end of August 

    • Approx. 4 weeks to allocate assessors (September)

    • Assessment period 2 commences October to November

    • Assessor reports retuned to the Centre by end of December

    • Internal verification by mid January 

    • External verification completed before end of January

    • Final results from RSPH in February

    • Certificates issued in March

 

Once your assessor has been allocated your work based mentor will be contacted with details of your assessor - communication will then take place between the candidates mortuary department and the assessor to arrange a suitable date for assessment. Your assessor will review your e-portfolio and may also ask to see additional documentation (e.g. SOPs) prior to the visit. 

 

E-portfolios

 

If assessors notice any confidential or patient identifiable information in any e-portfolios (or paper versions) they will advise the candidate to remove or anonymise any data.

 

To provide further security to all our candidate’s data / evidence, access to individual e-portfolios is now restricted between the following 3rd parties:

 

Individual e-portfolios:

·         Candidate. 

·         Assessor (access link will automatically be sent to you once assessor allocated).

 

 

Cohort (all candidates e-portfolios):

·         North Tees Centre.

·         RSPH external verifier (external verifiers will be sent access to entire course e-portfolios).
