Submitting a portfolio

How to submit

You should submit your portfolio using this form: https://www.alt.ac.uk/certified-membership/cmalt-submission. You will receive a confirmation by email. You can only access the submission form if you are logged in and currently registered as a CMALT candidate or Certified Member . If you encounter difficulties, email cmalt@alt.ac.uk .

If you don't have a URL to your portfolio, for example if it is in Word or some other format, you can still send it to us as an attachment at cmalt@alt.ac.uk (max 25MB) after you have completed the form.

When submitting your portfolio it should either be a single file or a zipped collection of files (for instance to include evidence).  As many email systems block large attachments this should not exceed 10Mb. Please be aware that assessors may not have access to specialist tools, and it is therefore best to avoid proprietary formats.

We aim to come to an initial decision about submitted portfolios within 3 months of receipt. The initial decision will either be a pass of the portfolio or a referral, requesting additional information to bring the portfolio up to the requisite standard. If you are asked to revise the portfolio the second assessment will be final, resulting in either a pass or fail.

When to submit

There are three submission deadlines throughout the year. You may submit your portfolio by:

  • 31 January for assessment during February, March and April and assessment result in May
  • 31 May  for assessment during June, July and August and assessment result in September
  • 30 September for assessment during October, November and December and assessment result in January.
