Resource description

The work of ALPS is based on the hypothesis that if students receive feedback from different assessors (including other professionals, peers, service-users etc) in diverse practice situations, then confidence, competence, assessment reliability and interprofessional working skills will all be improved. Communication skills, Team Working and Ethical Practice were selected as the initial competences to focus on as they are common across the QAA benchmarks and professional bodies’ regulatory occupational standards for all 16 professions covered by ALPS. The three Common Competency Maps have been used as a framework from which the assessment tools have been built. If you would like to learn more about the process of creating Common Competency Maps, or you are interested in adapting the ALPS Maps to suit your requirements, please email
