The videos will be essential viewing for APC candidates facing their final assessment interviews in building control, building surveying, project management and quantity surveying.

In the films APC assessors put real questions to 'candidates' who have either completed the final assessment interview or will shortly be doing so.

The first three films feature Turner & Townsend cost management director Dean Mills, who puts the questions to Matthew Barrington.

The competencies covered ins these films are: Contract practice competence (T017), Cost planning competence (T022) and

APC final assessment interviews often have a poor pass rate. Jon Lever, a chairman of APC assessors, says candidates are often under-prepared.

He says: "The final assessment is not something to be taken lightly. That said, from experience as a chairman of assessors and through my face to face dealing with many candidates this sadly is sometimes the attitude I see. This is clear from the poor pass rate that often follows an assessment period."
