    Are you all organised? When did you have you ff?
  2. Police Scotland Recruitment

    It' taken 12 months for me. My intake date is 26th March. I chose L division (Argyll) which is still being pushed through quicker. Some people at the final fitness who were going through West said they had been waiting 2 years.

    I think I'm going to try and be there for 6 so I can get unpacked then have a wander around to see where everything is.

    I was asked the protected characteristics at my interview. Definitely know about your integrity respect and fairness. I didn't need to know them word for word but I had an understandng of them. You'l be amazed how much you actually do know and remember on the day. Good luck. You will do great

    Yeah they tell you which one they are asking for. I was also asked if I knew any of the specialist units and the operational units. They didn't want me to know everything and once I had named a few of them they were happy and moved on. Don't be scared to ask them to repeat the question and don't be scared to stop half way through an answer if it's not fitting their question and ask them if you can start again with a different example. I along with a few others had a good cop bad cop type interview. Don't be flustered by it. I was cut off mid sentence, questioned why I would leave a job to join the police at 37 and he kept looking at his watch when I was talking. He did the same to the others he interviewed too so just keep calm. Good luck

    Just after some advice from people who have started or finished their training at Tulli. Where did you get all your kit from? Did you just use spra and when they say white t-sirts do they mean the police Scotland ones or just plain round neck t-shirts? Thanks

  10. Police Scotland Recruitment

    I had that too but had my ff and SMT cancelled last week because they have reduced March intake so have now said we are looking at June. Gutted.

    Congratulations. Did they give you an idea of an intake date?
  12. Police Scotland Recruitment

    I was asked about the rank structure but didn't need to provide names. The asked about specialist units but just what I knew. I wasn' asked anything about local or force priorities but I did learn about run tell hide and stop and search. I was asked about probationer training. I didn' learn this word for word I just gave them an abbreviated version. Partnership working was in my 2nd interview where they just asked if I knew what it meant and how it can be of benefit. I stressed out loads thinking I needed to know everything so I feel your pain, don't stress too kuch. If you don't know something just say that you will make sure you know it for the 2nd interview. Good luck.

    Be yourself. Don' try and overshadow your team mates but instead involve them and if you notice one of them is struggling to get a say in things help them out by asking their point. It's not about completing tasks it's about how you work with each other. Don't be scared to have a different view to others oh and be aware they are always listening and will have eyes on you even during lunch as other members of staff report anyone who is doing or saying out of line. Have fun too. It is a good day.

    Just practice saying them over and over. Some people record them and listen to it while they are out running or at the gym. Use the star method too if that works for you. Good luck
