Evening masterclasses that cover either the APC process or a competency for a specific pathway.
Our masterclasses offer you regular learning for both key aspects of your pathway and the APC process (what to do and when to do it). 

The masterclasses give you a support network of other candidates to share your experiences with and the chance to regularly meet with an APC coach to ask any questions you may have. At each masterclass you can practice your APC presentation or have a short mock APC interview with an APC coach.

We feel that people learn best when they are comfortable and relaxed, so all our masterclasses are informal and run by a welcoming and enthusiastic APC coach.

“The Masterclass was effective as we were able to discuss scenarios in depth. I liked the informal style and I learnt a lot from listening to the other delegate’s answers. I recommend the APC Masterclasses as they are a very effective learning tool and highlight important parts of the topic.”
Joe Little, Cyril Sweett
