Police Constable Online Assessment CentreWatch
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!!
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.
