Work-based skills will close out on 31 December 2020. You must submit as a minimum your completed one-year work-based skills pack for associateship which we believe most of you have completed given the transition start date of 1 April 2015. This will exempt you from associateship work-based learning under the normative skills core application that will be pending you meeting your academic requirements for associateship. You will be granted your associateship work-based learning exemption N311.01 when you have met all your academic associateship requirements.
Alternatively, you can submit your completed work-based skills pack for fellowship in which case you will be exempted from fellowship work-based learning under the normative skills fellowship application that will also be pending you meeting your academic requirements for fellowship.
You will be required to continue with the extended work-based skills programme that requires you to complete one review question per year if you are in the “pending” status. The extended work-based programme is currently under review and will be rolled out by 1 January 2021 on the work-based learning solution that will align to the normative skills extended work-based learning programme. This will ensure that all members who have completed their work-based experience that has not yet met all academic requirements is aligned to one method of assessment on the normative skills curriculum.
