  1. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Hey Everyone, have noticed the forum has been pretty busy the past couple of days. Good to see everyone is getting on a bit in the process. I have my A/C next week. Am I correct in saying that the competencys being assessed in the interview are : Effective communication Personal effectiveness Job knowledge Personal awareness Leadership Partnership working I understand there will definetely be a question assessing effective communication. Have positive and negative examples for each competency so fingers crossed the questions are suited! Actually really looking forward the A/C.

    One of my questions didn't really suit the answers I had prepared. But I just took my time and thought about it and managed to fit the question. That's when the drink of water comes in handy haha. You will get through it. They will probe your answer to get a extra bit of information out you but it's just to get you over the line. I have applied for Q,G and K so my application has been on going for a while now.

    Well done on getting To The interview stage. Read back on the forum as far as you want and you will find loads of great tips and advice. You won't be assessed on partnership working at your initial. Advice I will give for your initial is just relax and be yourself. It's honestly not as bad as you think it will be. Study hard and have a couple of examples for each competency. Use the Police website, YouTube page and also all Police Scotland social media to get Information on what's happening in your local area. Go in and speak to a probationer. Ask them anything and they will help you. It really helped me out and prepared me well. The last tip I will give which helped me was to take a drink of water before you answer each question. It gives you a few extra seconds to think about what you are going to talk about. Sounds daft but it helped me. All the best when it comes. What divisions have you applied for?

    Look through the competency descriptors and try fit 3-4 in each of your examples. Try think of a positive example and a negative example for each competency. Remember Your examples don't need to be live changing, world saving stories. Just show you have a good understanding of the competencys and you will be fine. If you read through this thread you will find loads of useful advice for your initial. It helped me massively when I went for mines. Good luck when it comes.

    Jeez! Such a long process isn't it ha. I applied in June so that's me just going through the stages now. This is my first time applying. What about you?
  12. Police Scotland Recruitment

    I've applied for G,Q and K. Yeah i think the medical has to be deferred until you can meet the eye sight standard. When did you sit your fitness test?
  13. Police Scotland Recruitment

    What divisions have you applied for? Prep is going well. Everyone on the forum has been really helpful so just following advice from people who have passed their A/C and studying my notes. I am not going to make a definite decision on getting my laser treatment until I find out if I have passed my a/C then take it from there.
  14. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Well done on passing your initial. What area are you going through? I've got my consultation during the week so will see what price they will give me and take it from there.

    Have a think about the nine protected equality characteristics. When have you been in a situation where you have been different from others? When I answered my questions I made sure I was hitting 3-4 for the required descriptors for that competetency. Your responses don't need to be life saving, world changing answers. The interviews are just looking to see what kind of person you are. Have a few examples for each competency. Relax, take your time and have a drink of water before you answer each question. It really does help. When is your interview and where are you going for it?
