The Architects’ Professional Examination Authority in Scotland (APEAS) is prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to offer the Part 3 Examination in Scotland i.e., the final qualifying examination for registration as an Architect. APEAS therefore plays a vital role in the development of aspiring Architects and of the profession as a whole.
APEAS is seeking expressions of interest from suitably experienced individuals from all sectors of the community who are interested in serving on its Board of Directors as a lay Director i.e., as a Director who is not an Architect - the Board includes Architects from across
the architectural community who are committed to making the APEAS Part 3 Examination as effective as it possibly can be.
Applications are particularly welcomed from individuals with experience in one or more of the following areas: assessment/quality assurance in another professional/academic context; audit/finance; IT; marketing; law/development and the application of appeals/
Successful applicants will have:
• An understanding of, and a keen interest in, professional standards;
• Board level/governance experience; and
• a strong commitment to the objectives and values of APEAS.
These roles are not remunerated, but all reasonable costs associated with their effective discharge will be met. The Board normally meets 4 times a year (currently using Teams). APEAS is committed to equality and diversity and welcomes applications from underrepresented groups.
APEAS is a both a company limited by guarantee and a charity registered in Scotland.
