  1. @rolvix cheers mate. Not many people get the reference. I have the crime commissiners report and also the PEEL report so I know what's the force priorities and where the current strengths and weaknesses sit. Been keeping a good eye on what they putting on Social media and the positive action work they have been doing. Anything else you thought was useful to read up on?
  2. Cheers buddy. I have a couple if examples per competency and I think I have the content of my presentation finalised. Just gonna try to keep to keep relaxed and make sure I get all the information that's inside of my brain out. I am kinda weirdly loooking forward to it :o/
  3. Sounds good. Care to share any tips about WYP final interview? Got mine in a couple of weeks and feel fairly prepared but you never know with these type of things!
  4. Congarats mate, chuffed for you. Out of interest how are managing to have so many final interviews with other forces in such a short period of time?
  5. well done mate
  6. Sorry to hear that mate and it must be really gutting but it sounds like they gave you some detailed feedback to work off. Out of interest, how many scenarios had you prepared in advance? I personally would have had 2 per competency.
  7. It depends on the force. I have seen some forces state that you can only have 1 police officer application at any one time with any UK police force. They don't go on to say BTP, CNC, MOD but its worth checking with the HO force in question via the recruitment dept. I know for a fact that West Yorkshire allow applications to non-home office forces when you apply to them. I am in the same boat, I have passed a BTP paper sift and also applied to WYP.
  8. its very different mate compared to the SEARCH process used in England an Wales. I would get on to the Police Scotland specific forum area and find out what is required. Wee done in getting to where you are!
  9. Yes mate, if you a veering away from the STAR method then you are not going to be successful. WYP are quite clear on thats how they want your answers to be structured using STAR. Bluelight is excellent and Brendan gives away loads of free advice his YouTube channel and Facebook live videos.
  10. As I civilian I would always use their name. Might be different I was a special
  11. I get the feeling that using examples from being a special don't seem to cut it. I am not sure if Lincs specials are attached to Response or not but most often those scenarios don't give the rounded answer they want. It will tick certain competencies but not give you the complete answer the assessors require. I would always stick to non-police specific examples for the competencies.
  12. The only issue I could see is those missing payments which could suggest the debt is not being managed....
  13. AC results are valid for 12 months. Some forces don't like to accept candidates after they have failed the final interview as it looks like are happy to become an officer wherever they can get in. 6 months will absolutely fly by and you know what to expect so it should be much easier the next time around.
  14. Always declare it, if you don't it will down against you as an integrity issue.
  15. Yes, it was Jim. Its been a couple of years since I did mine. Glad you found it useful. I supplemented it with some of the info that blue light consultancy also has available via his videos and Facebook page.
