Hi everyone,

After applying for South Wales Police in January I have finally received my email invitations to complete the 3 stages of the Online Assessment Centre.

I’m wondering if anyone has completed this and if so, what was it like & do you have any advice?

I don’t have to do the SJT so the first part is the interview questions & I’m not afraid to admit I’m panicking. I’ve got until Monday to complete everything!!

I've got through to assesment centre but haven't been given assesment centre dates for the online interview stage yet, I'm guessing it's going to take atleast another month or two to hear anything back, good luck on your test, type in blue light assesment centre help into YouTube, he offers a really good guide to the Covid version of the assesment centre!

Read and understand the CVF, which you should have received a copy of (or at least a link to).

Practice answering any questions with reference to the CVF. Do not try and simply tell cool stories. It doesn't matter how boring or trite your answers are - they must be in the context of the CVF for you to do well.

For example, if you are asked to talk about a time you demonstrated leadership - if you tell a story about how you once grabbed the controls of a passenger airliner after the pilot got food poisoning; that will not be as good an answer as saying how you were in charge of t-shirts for the singers in the school play - if for the school play story, you articulate how you took ownership of the task, worked with others to achieve xyz, delivered on your task competently, were open minded to the input of others and to different options available and blah blah blah.

Truthfully, the process wasn’t as painful as I expected but it was very drawn out. I went long periods without hearing a thing, but when things get going it seems like a mad dash to the finish.

I am taking my online assessment this week. I didn't have to take the SJT as this wasn't required for the MET. I have completed the Competency based interview and the written exercise. I am taking the Briefing exercise today.

It was distracting looking at yourself on camera but I blurred by face and looked directly into the camera as the guidance suggested.

I have a few questions if anyone has had to retake...
Are all the exercises marked as one?
Will I have to retake all 3 of the exercises or just the ones I failed on?


I was offered a place at a Practice2Progress workshop for free. Did anyone do the same workshop?

Did anyone buy any resources to help them prepare? I bought a few from How2Become, not sure they were all that helpful though.

Did you get your results by email or did you have to keep checking the portal?
Did they tell you how you had done on each exercise or just whether you had failed or passed?
Thanks

I hope it is not that much longer! I am in the final stages now and just hope it is like a mad dash to the finish
