The APM have announced an update to their ChPP standard, which will be rolled out in 2023. You can find more information on the APM website;

The name, status and rigour of the chartered standard will remain the same as the current edition. Here are key dates you’ll need to know if you’re thinking of applying:

  • 17th March 2023 - Submission Deadline 1
  • 19th May 2023 - Submission Deadline 2
  • 28 July 2023 - final opportunity to apply or re-sit under the current standard*
  • TBC 2023 – Applications open

*After this date, all current applications that have not been submitted will be deleted. Submissions for the 28 July cycle will not be eligible for any re-sits under the current standard if unsuccessful and a new submission under the updated standard will be required.

The new standard will be released sometime during ‘Spring 2023’ but it is unclear what exactly this means. 

 So, at Parallel we have taken the decision to run one programme of support for anyone wishing to target the 19th May date, by offering a start-up webinar, with our tutors to provide email support to review applications. We will then offer a 1 day group exam preparation workshop late March and individual interview preparation once an applicant has been advised of their APM interview date. Our current self paced offering is still available up to 28th July 2023 and will then be withdrawn.
