    Where are you up to with your app with Notts?
  2. GMP

    On Friday 24th i received the dreaded letter from GMP. I passed my medical last August and was just waiting for a start date. Friday was the "oh sorry" again, but your app is going in the bin, so i supposed i will carry on as a PCSO. Up the tories/lib dems serves eveyone right for thinking the country needs a change, bring back labour quick. Anyone else had the same letter !!!!!!
  3. Hi Every1, Did my medical at the end of August and passed, has any one else passed it, and what have you been told?
  4. Hi Mate, I've been a PCSO in GMP for nearly 2 1/2 yrs now and was a Special for 12 months. The book i read and other PCSO's read in my office is called "passing the police recruit assessment process" by Peter Cox. We all used it and passed, i'm just waiting for a date having passed my medical on the 27th Aug 2009. The book is really useful and there is also a dvd called how 2 become thats useful also. You are in a strong position already being a PCSO you should be able to come up with loads of examples. Check your PDP and look at the core competencies to see whether you have hit them all. If you can't hit all the competencies ask your CBM to help you. I used good ones from pact meetings and police surgerys customer focus is important read the policing pledge. All i can say is be yourself on the day, and the role plays treat them as you would deal with someone on the street think of their needs and most important try to think of a solution. One last thing make sure you know the core competencies inside out the positives and the negatives i read them twice a day for weeks and you'll see the difference when you have to answer a question or react in a role play. Good Luck.
  5. GMP Application

    Hi Every1, I passed my medical on 27th Aug 2009 and i have been told i may miss the Jan intake. It's looking like April for me aswell. Makes you laugh when they say they are trying to get every1 through between 8-9 months ha !!!
  6. Hi everyone, I had my medical 27th Aug, wasn't aware of any delays i woz expecting a start date. If every1 remembers on the pre assessment night they told us the start dates Oct and Jan. I spoke to Alex 2day and she told me i'll have to wait until April. I've been a PCSO at GMP for over 2 years. It's very frustrating as it woz only last month they were asking for 750 apps on the intranet. It looks like we will be going through but we'll just have wait, jan looks like people who have had their checks done then the ones that are like me waiting for the checks to be done.
