    Hi She123 It was a really good but exhausting day. Thought I'd messed up a couple of the exercises but the interview went surprisingly well. I was lucky to have a great bunch there on the day, we got on so well. How you feeling about your A/C? Make sure you read the briefs thoroughly and get involved. It really is good fun. We ran out of time with one of the exercises but were enjoying it so much we asked if we could carry on, they obviously said no . I honestly don't think you can do any more for the second interview. I just read over my notes and tried to think of a couple more examples for the competency questions, didn't use any of them. Good luck and let me know how it goes. Sx

    If I remember correctly, they went through the list of us there and confirmed what they still required. For example mine was just awaiting references and they asked me to chase it up! Another was final vetting clearance and reference.

    They didn't as i've not had my FF/SMT invite yet. I was expecting it but it didn't come. I just did that as a precaution. From what I know they just ask you if you have taken any medication. Remember, they are not trying to trick you. If you have taken any sort of medication just tell them. They understand that people have to take certain things for the right reasons.

    Wouldn’t worry about it - It’s just so they have a back to School work history. Put down the school details and head teacher. I had left school 10 years before I applied. What post(s) you going for? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think that will be the case, others have a priority. At my A/C in Oct they actually said we could be Dec but I think that was too much of a push timewise. So given what happened in March people like yourself were ahead of me. I try not to stress over what I can’t control. I won’t deny it feels like a kick in the teeth but I have a decent job and I’ll get over it! Good luck for your FF! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I suspect they'll be able to tell you on Monday or at least give a date for when they'll know if you made June intake. Best of luck! Let us know how you get on :)

    I'm sitting here, working out what i'm going to say to my MD, when I phoned HR at Jackton, I got the impression that they wouldn't seek final employer ref until they confirmed we had made it through. Saying that, it does say on the email that they would seek references over the next few weeks.

    Just received my letter today to ff and smt at Jackton on 3rd May. Has anyone else? It says on it "considered" for June intake - so no promises. But like the rest, it's a step closer!

    Is anyone on track to make the Police Scotland (Edinburgh) June 2018 intake? I've been delayed after the March intake due to Edinburgh having low numbers required at said time. I'm desperate to start and praying I get accepted for a June start!! If anyone hears anything i.e. fitness tests etc. then let me know.

Local and National initiatives Name the specialist units What do you know if the code of ethics and professional standards. What do constables do as part of their daily roles. Whats involved in the initial Training and probationers training (2 years of learning) Why are you wanting to be an officer? Organisations that work with Police Scotland. Name the strands of equality and diversity.

    I did mine with e-laws. I had a series of 10 assignments to complete at home and then took a final multiple choice exam. They provided all the materials. I found them to be very helpful. They use locations around the country for the exam to accommodate as many people as possible. What else did you need to know?

    Thought I'd post a quick mention for everyone who has passed FPI and had uniform fitting then have to go and buy your boots. If like me you searched online for ages trying to find somewhere in Edinburgh that sells the boots, then I hope this short cuts the process for you. Sports and Rec at Fettes as mentioned by the guys at Uniform fitting no longer exists or at least not at fettes anymore. I went to Leith army Surplus Footwear they have all the appropriate footwear you will need and pretty reasonable prices. You could buy online but I prefer to try on footwear to ensure i get the best comfort. Anyway they are very friendly and helpful and if you mention your joining the police they may even add a 10% discount for you. LAS is on Leith walk. Website online but not the clearest.
