Change to Professional Discussion time slots
As of Thursday 25 March 2021, all new booked EPA professional discussions will now require 45 minutes between time slots. This will allow time for any technical issues and for the assessor to prepare for the next professional discussion they have booked in.
Professional discussion times will also be amended to 1 hour 15 minutes. The assessment plan allows 1 hour for professional discussions. However, the introduction is not included in the one hour time slot, we are adding 15 minutes to booking times for the assessor to carry out an introduction and questions before the professional discussion starts.
If any reasonable adjustments are required these will be taken into consideration at the time of booking.
For example, a professional discussion will be booked for 9:00 - 10:15. Then leaving a 45 minute break in-between, another professional discussion will be booked for 11:00 – 12:15.
