Screening Interview Step 2

Assessor Matching and Conflict of Interest


White arrow on orange circle After you complete your pre-interview questionnaire, you will receive an email from the College matching you with an assessor. The assessor is also a PT and has been trained to complete the screening interview.

White arrow on orange circle You must declare if you have a conflict of interest with the assessor by answering a question in the PT Portal. You have seven days to complete the conflict of interest declaration. 

White arrow on orange circle A conflict of interest might be if you have some sort of personal or professional relationship with the assessor. If you are unsure if you have a conflict of interest, contact College staff to discuss.

White arrow on orange circle Please visit the Public Register to review the assessor's profile and determine if a conflict of interest exists, but please do not use the employment information on the Public Register to contact the assessor.

White arrow on orange circle If you do not have a conflict of interest with the assessor you were matched with, answer No.
As long as the assessor does not declare a conflict of interest, they will contact you within three days to book a screening interview. 

White arrow on orange circle If you do have a conflict of interest with the assessor you were matched with, answer Yes and you will be matched with a different assessor. You will receive another email with the name of the new assessor. When you are notified about being rematched, please log in to the  PT Portal and answer the conflict of interest question again.
