2016 was an excellent year at Identity Consult with four members of the team gaining chartered status with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, the leading professional body promoting and enforcing standards in land, property, infrastructure and construction.
Mark Graham, Alistair Henderson, Charlotte Paul and Pete Johnson all successfully passed the Assessment of Professional Competence with Charlotte, Mark and Alistair qualifying via the Graduate Quantity Surveying Pathway and Pete through the Professional Experience Project Management Pathway.
Employee development is of the utmost importance to Identity Consult and this is reflected in our company values which include “supporting our staff to be the best they can be”.
Senior Consultant, Alistair Henderson, reflected on the process and what it means to achieve MRICS status: “The APC process was tough and required dedication throughout the structured training period and especially in the lead up to the final assessment,” said Alistair. “It demanded long hours of study, however I can without doubt say that the process has made me a more experienced, more informed and a more rounded quantity surveyor.
“I take immense pride in my designation as a Member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and would recommend the process to other professionals considering starting the APC process.”
Mark Graham added: “It was a big personal achievement and testament to the help and support that the company have offered me throughout the three-year long process.
“Achieving the MRICS accreditation following the final assessment interview was the culmination of an intensive study period, and I’m pleased to say that the hard work has paid dividends.”
Identity Consult has recently established a Peer to Peer support group in order to provide additional information about the APC process including revision tips, formatting of the written submission and what to expect at the final assessment.
This will be held monthly from February onwards and more information will be issued soon. If interested, please contact Alistair Henderson at firstname.lastname@example.org
