Just applied for the Police?

This week’s Tip of the Week is for those of you preparing for your National Sift or Online Assessment Centre date having just put an application in. There are options but the majority of police forces follow this process, the National Sift and then the Online Assessment Centre.

Our book Police Recruitment Start to Finish is a great place to start, it covers preparation before you even apply, eligibility, advice for your National Sift and includes our 2 workbooks – one for the Online Assessment Centre and the other for your Final Interview. Purchase it via our website.

Police Recruitment Start to Finish Guide and Workbook – Careers in Blue

National Sift

The National Sift does what it says on the tin! It sifts around 40% of applicants. If you don’t know how to approach it, you may fail, at this early stage. It has 2 parts – Behavioral Style Questionnaire (80 questions) and Situational Judgement Test (15 questions). The College of Policing doesn’t tell you much, a couple of example questions, that’s it….some people will tell you just be yourself – bad advice! You need to know what to expect and prepare where you can.

So, how can you boost your chances of passing? It’s a no brainer to do our hour long National Sift Modular Training Course to prepare you perfectly, with sample questions during the course and more to practice yourself later.

100% success for all our clients and great value at just £25! Book this one and any of our Online Assessment Centre Modular Training Courses via the below link.
