AWPF Workshop – Sunday 29th April

An excellent day was had by everyone with about 30 possible candidates attending each keen to gain as much information as possible on achieving the prestigious award of AWPF. Aside from the candidates most of the WPF executive committee were in attendance to advise and help with the many questions that were asked.

The day started with the President Mr Cliff Emery welcoming everyone. We then moved on to a competition hosted by Dave Condon, our Treasurer, called “spot the successful panel”. This was followed by Brian Coleman who gave an excellent and detailed presentation on what is needed to submit a successful panel.

In the final session individual candidates showed their panels to the experts for detailed critique.

The day ended at 4pm with the final count of 25 applications.

SO THE AWPF AWARD APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.

Thank you everyone for the massive support you all gave, to make the event such a success. Good luck to all the candidates on 4th November 2018 at the Assessment day.
