Thank you for all the help
I am pleased to be writing to you both informing you that I was successful in the Assessment Centre and am due to attend a District Interview.
Thank you for all the help provided at the course, it was without a doubt extremely helpful.
Many thanks for the support
Brian I’d just like to say thank you for the course today, it has been a great help to my planning and preparation for the assessment centre.
Many thanks for the support
A huge advantage in preparing for the assessments
I thought the course was excellent. With a clear idea of how to focus my preparation I now feel a lot more confident in tackling the assessment centre.
It was good that a lot of attention was paid to the role-plays as this has given much food for thought when it comes to working on the interviews and written exercises as well. I didn’t appreciate how important it was to have a solid structure to planning the role-plays and I think we’ve all come out with a huge advantage in preparing for the assessments.
I know a number of other specials that are applying for other forces that would massively benefit from attending one of your courses in the near future, if you have any in coming up soon. I’m very happy to spread the word if you give me a heads-up.
The course exceeded all of my expectations
Brian I would like to thank the trainers for all their help and support and for running this course. The course exceeded all of my expectations; it was very informative and offered a safe training environment to explore the assessment centre process. Each section of the assessment procedure, and what to expect on the day, was covered in detail and I could not fault the trainer’s knowledge or advice, they were very approachable and experienced in the process. For me I was least confident about the role-plays and what to expect on the day. The course really bought this process to life and we were given ample opportunity to practice and gain feedback to better prepares us for this on the day. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who reaches the assessment centre stage; it will give you the confidence on the day to perform to the best of your ability. This course truly proved invaluable in helping me to successfully complete the assessment centre and to reaching a start date.
All the best
100% Score, thanks Brian
Feedback sheet arrived today…100% in written and oral communication! not bad!
I am pleased to tell you I passed the assessment.
No doubt it was due to the help I had on the course!
Thank you for all your help.
I found out last night I passed! I haven’t read through all my feedback yet but I’m so relieved! Thank you for all your help.
One to One training really helped thanks
I got through! I received an email this morning explaining that I’d been successful and that written feedback from the college of policing will be on its way in the next few weeks.
Very happy and thanks again for all the help & advice, never would have done it without that training day.
(This student then received one-to-one coaching for his final interview as below)
On the day I think I represented myself well, the interview was informal as I sat before one current officer and a member of the recruitment team. I knew that it was supposed to be a stress-free experience and they wanted to get the best out of me and they were very friendly but there’s no way of preventing the inevitable nerves.
The training session was again an invaluable experience. The most useful aspect was the immediate filmed interview – A great way to highlight strengths and weaknesses and it was useful personally to watch myself back. As your website progresses I imagine it will become easier for you to share content with pupils?
I remembered the advice you gave a number of times reminding me to describe situations fully as I made the same mistake a number of times of just launching into actions.
The document of questions you provided gave me a starting point to focus my attention, and the longer list of questions along with criteria they are looking for was also a useful tool. I was able to think of questions myself based on the ones you provided also.
The quiz you sent alongside the power point presentations summarised the content I needed to know nicely, offered direction for revision and the quiz was useful… I did get asked a few knowledge-based questions so was thankful I’d completed it.
The personal content you delivered about the college of policing, code of ethics and reminders of what to learn from the Police website really sunk in and I was able to remember much of it a lot easier than any written content I found myself. (Always been the case) The majority of it came back to me in the interview and I feel that is what gave me the ability to deliver responses that got the officer nodding his head and putting his thumbs up. I would recommend that you deliver that dialogue (and more as its updated) in an audio file to any perspective distance-learners, you can then say you cater for all learning styles!
It’s a pity I did not hear about you sooner!
This is Tom from the course the other week. Unfortunately found out about you after I submitted my application, but attended your assessment centre course whilst waiting for my result. Unfortunately my application did not pas. I have just received the news, which was disappointing given the amount of work I have put in.
I think I will now take a rest for a while, re group myself and get ready to try again in the future. Maybe next time now that I have met your good selves I could arrange something through your company and have you guys check my application next time?
Even though my application didn’t get through, the course did help a lot and I think I would have been well equipped for the assessments centre.
Hello! The course for me
Hello! The course for me was extremely helpful. The content was very informative and interesting. My main area of opportunity was the written aspect of the SEARCH assessment centre. During the course the trainer spent time with me to focus on how to improve my written communication. As a result of the coaching this was the area in which I scored highest in the assessment centre. The course is delivered in a very relaxed but professional environment. All areas of the assessment centre are covered in great detail with individual coaching. The course will enable you to learn how to pass the assessment centre and feel confident ultimately making you feel more relaxed on the day. With the help of the team I passed my assessment centre and I have just received my start date having been successful. I would recommend the services of this site to anyone applying to the police. Brian is a very knowledgable individual with years of experience within the police service, take advantage! Thanks.
Thank you Brian
Hi Brian, I just got my application form results and I passed…. I am through to the assessment centre and I know that your guidance played an enormous part in all of this. You helped me understand what they were looking for and how I could bring that out as much as possible in my writing.
A massive thanks for checking my application
I wanted to say a massive thanks for checking my application and being so prompt in your responses. I could not recommend you enough for your professionalism and help. I have managed to complete the form now and will be handing it in this evening. If I am successful in the application stage I will be certainly be in contact with you to look at other services that you offer.
Excellent Application Workbook
Jack B – March 18, 2015:
A clear, easily understood, accurate, well set out and informative guide. It was a massive reason why I went from failed form one year to passed form the next. Only after using it did I know how much off the mark I was the year before.
Thanks for your feedback
Martin – March 10, 2015:
Hi Brian, I wanted to say a massive thank you for looking at my application for me and been so prompt in your responses. I could not recommend you enough for your professionalism and help. All this for such a reasonable price. If I am successful in the application stage I will be certainly be in contact with you to look at other services that you offer. A great service. Many Thanks.
Good Evening Brian, I just wanted to let you know that I have just heard back from my application and have passed. I have been invited to attend the next stage at the assesment centre on 14th April. Again a massive thank you for your help and input on the application stage.
I would recommend this service
Jack B – March 18, 2015:
A first class service that gets the best out of your chosen examples and answers. If you have a good example/answer, this checking service can make it a great mark, but most importantly a pass mark. There is no nonsense, just constructive advice that will improve your answers, as long as you are prepared to put the work in yourself.
One to One Recommendation
Jack B – March 18, 2015:
If you are like me and you always appreciate being able to talk in person, this is for you. You are made to feel extremely welcome and right from the start, you will start to get answers to those nagging questions you have about the process. No question is a silly one and you will be given a straight answer. Book this now if you want to be a very confident and prepared candidate for whatever stage you are currently going through.
I bought this workbook for my son who had failed on previous attempts to join the police, I’m pleased to say he is now preparing for the next stage. I must also say I have nothing to do with the police but read the workbook to just to support and help my son but I have converted Brian’s methods into my own workplace. The methods are really well explained in his video links so saves a lot of reading time it also made me realise my own workplace competencies are not that much different and I now feel more confident when advising people that I manage when they are applying for internal jobs, its so simple but effective.
Mr A Chisolm
This workbook proved to be invaluable to me. I bought it only five days before I had to submit my application, I liked that it was instantly downloadable and it just keeps to the information that I needed. The video presentation soon made me realise that the competency based answers that I had already prepared were weak and bound to fail I redrafted the whole lot and pleased to say that I now have an invite to the assessment centre. Thoroughly recommend this product but as you say on your website its best not to leave it as late as I did.
I passed the assessment centre!!
I have received my email to say that I passed the assessment centre and without your services I doubt I would even still be in this months long process. I have attended your assessment centre one day course, your one on one coaching and your application checking services and all of them are first class. Candidates doing the recruitment process without your help are already not properly prepared in my opinion. Thanks again.
Could not have done it without you!
I have not got my exact score and feedback sent yet but I got the news that I passed the assessment centre for PC. Will be heading into the final stage soon but I would not have got this far if not for your essential guidance. Being at your course and receiving one to one coaching was brilliant and after doing it all, the idea of me turning up on the day without it seems like self destruction. Thanks again from Jack B.
Thank you for the session today. I am in a much better position to know what to expect at my assessment centre. The tips for the interviews and the advice about the interactive exercises has made me feel a lot more confident. I am looking forward to the real thing now.
