Once booked, you will receive a confirmation email and one of NCVO’s Mentoring and Befriending team will call you at the agreed time.

APS support workshop

Our APS support workshops run in Manchester, Birmingham and London. The workshops offer you support with the self-assessment and development process to help ensure you are ready for your assessment visit. Two places are available for each project at one workshop.

Projects can also attend a support workshop prior to applying to achieve APS at a cost of £45. If the project then signs up for APS, this amount will be taken off the price of the APS application.
