Police situational judgement and aptitude career tests

If you’re applying to become a police officer, as well as fitness tests, you’re likely to encounter tests covering language, numeracy and information handling.

Numeracy tests – similar to numerical reasoning tests.

Language tests – the language test is not quite the same as verbal reasoning it is more testing knowledge of the language. Although some of the tests are tests comprehension skills, similar to our verbal reasoning tests.

The information handling tests – can contain elements of numerical and verbal reasoning along with data analysis.

One of the most important aspects of becoming a successful police officer is being able to make good decisions. Police officers in any part of the world are required to act efficiently in different positions where they need to make lawful, logical, and politically correct decisions. It has become imperative that officials behave in a manner that maintains a good image of the police service while at the same time it does not endanger the health and safety of the individuals concerned. Police officers are also required to comply with the code of conduct, Core competencies, and the values of the police force. To achieve these aims, the metropolitan police force and constables are now using situational judgement tests as an important tool to refine the selection process. In this blog, we can identify what is this situational judgement test, how it helps the police force to take important decisions, and certain example questions that can help candidates to get a glimpse of the test to help them crack it successfully. 

So what is a situational judgement test? In a layman’s term, the police situational judgement test is an aptitude test that provides the candidate with a series of passages describing police-based scenarios. Each of the situations has a series of answers that allows the police officers to decide how to respond to the particular scenario. For example, A candidate might be given a situation where a person has moved from her employer because her partner has been made redundant and they were struggling to support their family expenses. In such a situation, the policeman is informed that the one who has stolen the cheque has not cashed them and they are ready to repay the employer. The situation consists of various possible actions like conducting the relevant enquiries and punishing the offender or consulting with the employer and attempting to settle the dispute because of the personal circumstances of the perpetrator. Another solution can be to return the check and take no legal action because no harm has been performed. The candidate has to thank the answers in terms of effective, fairly effective, ineffective, counter-productive, and very effective categories. These categories reflect how useful they are in terms of resolving the issue. The categories are listed and explained below:

  • Very effective: this is the most Productive response since it can give the best possible outcome. 
  • Fairly effective: this is a reasonable choice but is slightly flawed. 
  • Ineffective: this is the response that does not help in improving the situation in any manner.
  • Counter-productive: this is the worst response because it does not improve the situation and in the due course of time it makes it worse while leading to more problems.

There is technically no wrong or right answer when choosing the options given in situations of judgement scenarios. However, the assessment identifies how the candidate reacts to a particular situation. Certain responsible responses are less favourable to the assessor. The candidate must ensure that it does not raise any red flags from its responses.

Joining the police force is a very challenging task both mentally and physically since it comes with a wide range of challenges that every individual is not capable of effectively handling. 

The assessment process for hiring police candidates is highly competitive and is grouped into three major themes. These are aptitude, physical and administrative. In the United Kingdom, there are three routes through which a candidate can enter the police force. The two most common routes are the PCDA or police constable degree apprenticeship and the degree holder entry program or DHEP. 

The assessment process that is followed in each of the degrees is somewhat similar and it is monitored by the College of policing. However, these two tests have slight variations depending on the force which is applied by the candidate. In all the cases there is a Competency and Value framework based on which the candidates will be assessed. The behaviours, competencies, and values which are expected from the police professions are assessed based on the value framework.

The Metropolitan Police regional force is the largest police force in the United Kingdom. The Metropolitan police operate in every borough of specific cities of England, especially in London. The Metropolitan police assessment process is divided into two phases. In phase 1, interviews are carried out to identify the decisions which are made by the members of the force when they fall into specific kinds of situations. 

It is expected that the police officers demonstrate appropriate behaviours and key values that are outlined in the competency and value framework. In the second stage, the medical aspects are closely evaluated. These tests include vision, hearing, BP, DNA, fingerprint, and even tests to determine substance misuse. 

The fitness assessment is also tested in this phase. The successful completion of both stage one and stage two needs to be completed so that employment can be made. A thorough background check also needs to be conducted.

There are a number of online assessments and aptitude tests that need to be carried out to determine the personality and skills of the candidate. The police numerical reasoning test is the most common that measures the arithmetical understanding of the candidate. It also helps the assessors to interpret the data analysis capabilities of the candidate. 

The police verbal reasoning test allowed the candidates to show a keen understanding of the English language and the way they interpret the information. Questions in the Police verbal reasoning test are either comprehension or situational. In the first instance, the candidates will be required to respond in a true or false manner. In the second case, the candidates will have to determine the inferences or the conclusions that can be made based on the evidence that is provided. The police competency-based interviews and situational judgement test and other important ways through which the aptitude of the candidates are evaluated.

Any candidate who is preparing for police officer tests needs to know the competency and value framework based on which the tests are developed. The candidates have to have a key set of behaviours, abilities, and values to become successful applicants.

Green Jobs written in grass effect

Green Jobs

Demand for green jobs in the UK has risen by nearly a third (32%) in the last 12 months. According to research by LinkedIn, the UK saw a 12% increase in the number of sustainability professionals last year. This is higher than the global average of 7.5% as the impact of climate change becomes more of a priority for businesses around the world.

Our Green Jobs Search

       


      Climate change remains a defining issue of our time and while COVID-19 is all-encompassing at this moment, it’s reassuring to see that the UK is well placed to lead on sustainability with the world-class talent to take us forward.

      European cities are leading the green jobs increase with the UK having the fifth highest concentration of sustainability professionals in the world.

      Green Jobs revolution

      The Tories initially promised to cut greenhouse gas emissions to “net-zero” by 2050. Their November 2020 announcement went much farther.

      The Government aims to create 10,000’s of new green jobs. In part these new green jobs are for those unfortunate people who have been made redundant because of the pandemic.

      This green economy stimulus package could also help to “reskill” workers. Reskilling them for green jobs in areas such as insulation upgrades, offshore wind and carbon capture.

      These measures go significantly beyond the Conservative’s manifesto commitment to create two million jobs in clean energy within the next decade.

          Data jobs interview – Data Strategy Manager

          Welcome to our Belle Cartwright interview. Belle is one of the Women in Data Ambassadors. Belle works as a Senior Data & Audience Strategy Manager.

          Data career challenges

          I think the awareness and visibility of women in technical roles are hugely exciting. When I first started I couldn’t name any female CDOs or expert role models in the field. Now I get to call some of them friends. 

          Female entrepreneur opportunities

          My top tip for career success is to be hungry and willing to learn. Technology is evolving and changing rapidly. The people who can get in front of or drive those changes will be the end winners. As a result, entrepreneurship is a key part of my role. I have to actively seek the right business opportunities within this fast-paced ever-changing world. This is for my agency. Plus, for my client in order for us to maintain and grow competitive advantage.

            Our top Data careers advice

          Keep an open mind and always take the opportunities in front of you. You never know where it can lead you. You will have the ability to change fields/roles multiple times in your career. What you like doing/not doing will change as your skillset and experience grows. So don’t get set on one thing. It’s super easy once you have some experience to be able to link it. Or to gain new ones to help you move from one place to the next. The biggest step you can take is the 1st one. So be bold, be brave and experiment until you find the right fit for you. 

          Top Data careers interview

          Here are excerpts from our interview with Leyre Murillo Villar. Leyre is a Women in Data  Ambassador 2020. Leyre works as a CDO Data Controller.

          Data Controller career path

          I did an MSc in Computer Science. The first three years of the degree was focused on data structures and data management. The second part on artificial intelligence and neuronal networks. I had many options and was unsure about which career to pursue. I chose computer engineer degree as it was the most unknown to me. It was where my knowledge gap was bigger and because it sounded fancy.

          Once I finished I started working in Madrid at Deloitte for Santander Group. I developed data analysis initiatives, where I managed to apply all the programming and data skills I had learnt at university. I guess it was a mix of luck, effort and true enjoyment that kept me going. After a couple of years working in the external audit domain for Santander, I joined EY.  I had the opportunity to launch/create the data quality service.

          Biggest Data Controller challenges

          • Firstly, more women in a management position.
          • Secondly, diversity and inclusive policies e.g the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals.
          • Thirdly, empowering all women and girls. 

          Data Controller opportunities for women entrepreneurs  

          Having a degree it is definitely not the only path to a successful career. It helps because it gives you the possibility to learn some skills. And a problem-solving mindset that you may need in the future. But the most important part is your willingness to understand problems. To find suitable solutions and your passion to get to the root of the real-life problems. To ask appropriate questions. Plus, to network with different people, connect the dots and find patterns and meaning in the chaos. 

          Top data careers advice  

          Ask questions, understand the why and the how. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes, learn from them. Fully embrace chaos and changes, as many challenges will come, use them as a testing environment to try new things. Think where you are today, where you want to be and build your path to get there.

                  Student Careers Service

                  There is a Student Careers Service on nearly every university campus. It is made up of a team of people with a wide knowledge of the work environment who are dedicated to helping their students and offering guidance which gives the students the best chance in fulfilling their career aspirations.

                  How Personality Type affects Your Career

                  It may even have define your career choice. In our opinion, most ENTJs prefer leadership roles and managing work projects.

                  Our Graduate Career Service Guide

                  Personality type career guidance

                  We all know one person who loves the job. Another who just hates upper management politics. another who doesn’t want to deal with people.

                  Can you get promoted in a way that keeps you using your personality authentically. Unfortunately, to be successful you have to understand firstly your personality type. Secondly, the way it will interact with the people around you.

                  Personality type career mismatches

                  Your personality type certainly affects the way you think and act. Plus, other people’s perceptions of you.

                  This isn’t a complicated idea, but it is a critical one. Your personality type and any misperceptions others have about it are likely to self perpetuate and drive your career. It’s a feedback loop, regardless of whether or not it’s positive or negative; if you’re unhappy with your job and others know it, you’re likely to become more unhappy about your job. If your personality type doesn’t fit your job, you’re likely to be unhappy there.

                  Personality type career guidance

                  Career success requires finding a job that matches your personality traits. The idea becomes doubly true once you start moving up the ladder. This is why you can guess what department somebody is from just by their attitude toward the company.  So before you accept a personality-type based promotion, you need to know what jobs you can and can’t do.

                  Graduate Careers Services usually have their own building on the university campus but are also available online. An account can usually be created on the website, allowing the student to search for vacancies and receive email alerts on relevant jobs. The Careers Services provide a welcoming atmosphere, offering drop-in sessions or appointments where a member of the team can help explore the student’s options or problems. Other services also include:

                  The research showed it can be tough to watch the kids fly the nest, with three in ten parents saying it is one of the hardest things they have ever done.

                  And it won’t stop them worrying either with 48 percent of parents admitting that they are anxious about what their kids are up to every single day.

                  A staggering 93 percent agree that it is harder for kids moving into their first home or student halls than it was in their day. But while one in eight parents said seeing their kids go was sad, it gave them and their partner a chance to rekindle their relationship.

                  How Personality Type affects Your Career

                  Personality type career guidance

                  We all know one person who loves the job. Another who just hates upper management politics. another who doesn’t want to deal with people.

                  Can you get promoted in a way that keeps you using your personality authentically. Unfortunately, to be successful you have to understand firstly your personality type. Secondly, the way it will interact with the people around you.

                  London Career Guidance

                  Personality type career mismatches

                  Your personality type certainly affects the way you think and act. Plus, other people’s perceptions of you.

                  This isn’t a complicated idea, but it is a critical one. Your personality type and any misperceptions others have about it are likely to self perpetuate and drive your career. It’s a feedback loop, regardless of whether or not it’s positive or negative; if you’re unhappy with your job and others know it, you’re likely to become more unhappy about your job. If your personality type doesn’t fit your job, you’re likely to be unhappy there.

                  Personality type career guidance

                  Career success requires finding a job that matches your personality traits. The idea becomes doubly true once you start moving up the ladder. This is why you can guess what department somebody is from just by their attitude toward the company.  So before you accept a personality-type based promotion, you need to know what jobs you can and can’t do.

                  1. Discover What You Truly Enjoy

                  The last thing you want is to go through the process of switching careers just to get into an industry you don’t like.

                  List your likes, dislikes, values and interests. Identify exactly what it is about your current job that’s making you want to leave — and make sure to avoid career paths that could have the same obstacles.

                  For some people, this could be the toughest step. Figuring out what you truly enjoy and are passionate about after ignoring it for years isn’t a simple task.

                  Ask yourself, “What do I get excited about doing?” or “What’s something I spend my free time thinking about or doing?” Choose a career related to your answers to those questions.

                  Career guidance service

                  2. List Careers That Satisfy Your Passions

                  Once you’ve keyed in on some of your passions and interests, search for careers that would encompass those things.

                  For example, if you spend a lot of your time thinking about or hanging out with your dog, consider a career that has to do with animals.

                  The important part about this step is keeping your skills in mind, as well. Just because you like dogs doesn’t mean you have the expertise or skills required to be a veterinarian.

                  However, if your skills include marketing, writing and designing, you could consider working as a marketing specialist for an animal protection agency or dog kennel.

                  The trick is to combine your skills with your passion to create your ideal position, and go from there.

                  3. Research the Careers That Made Your List

                  Once you’ve come up with your list of dream careers, start researching. The bigger the industry change you’re making, the more research you should do. If you want to make a worthwhile, informed decision, this might be the most important step.

                  Think about the years of research and education you had before going into your current position — can you imagine how difficult it would’ve been to adjust without all that information?

                  Set yourself up for success by learning as much as you can before you start applying to jobs.

                  4. Make the Decision

                  You’ve brainstormed your interests, listed careers that relate to them and researched them all — now it’s time to decide.

                  Making a decision is important because it will frame the way the rest of your career change process goes. You need to pinpoint a specific industry or career you’re trying to break into in order to achieve that goal.

                  Career guidance service

                  5. Develop an Action Plan

                  Once you’ve decided on the path you’re going to take next, develop a specific plan with measurable goals, action items and a timeline.

                  There are probably new skills you need to learn, professionals you should meet and work to wrap up at your current job. You might even have a few personal goals you’d like to work on while making this shift.

                  Leaping from career to career isn’t a casual move — you don’t want to take it lightly. The more detailed your plan is, the better chance you’ll have at finding your dream job quickly.

                  6. Adjust Your Personal Brand

                  When you hand someone your business card or invite them to check out your online portfolio, they should be able to tell which industry you belong to now — not your past field.

                  This step includes adjusting your resume, cover letter and portfolio as much as possible so potential employers know you’re all in. When you edit your own professional brand to be more related to the new industry, they’ll see your dedication in that aspect.

                  You can consider creating a functional or skills-based resume using Resumonk. Highlight what transferable skills you have learnt in your previous profession and how they apply to the new industry.

                  7. Start Networking in Your Desired Field

                  In any career field, it’s not only about what you know, it’s also about who you know.

                  Start attending networking events for your industry and meeting as many people as you can. Introduce yourself and say you’re starting to break into the field now.

                  This is a great opportunity to ask seasoned professionals for their tips or advice on how to get into the industry and be successful — people love talking about themselves, their stories and their success, so they’ll remember you for asking.

                  8. Update Your Training

                  As you learn more about your new field, you might discover you need to significantly broaden your horizons.

                  Start slowly, taking only a course or two at a time. Not only will this be difficult to juggle with your current position, but it’ll also help you confirm you’re truly interested in the field.

                  If it’s not required to get a job in the field, you might not feel the need to get a new degree or certification for your career switch — that’s OK. Taking a few courses could be enough to give you the jump start you need and catch you up to people who’ve been in the field for years.

                  9. Find a Mentor

                  While you’re making this transition, you’re going to be stressed and uncertain at times. A mentor can help keep you on track and remind you of the bigger picture.

                  They don’t have to be an incredibly successful, rich or powerful person to be an adequate guide for you during this time. However, it certainly wouldn’t hurt if they’re experienced in your new industry.

                  10. Begin the Job Hunt

                  Recall all those skills you learned about job hunting during your senior year of college. Dig out your cover letter templates, interviewing tips and negotiation strategies.

                  Remember the importance of researching companies thoroughly before applying, interviewing and especially before accepting a position.

                  It’s also important to remember that the job hunt is truly a hunt — it’s not going to happen overnight. Try not to think about it too much and trust that the right position for you will come along.

                  11. Continue Learning About Your New Field

                  To keep yourself distracted while you wait to hear back from the seemingly endless amount of applications you’ve filled out, keep learning about your new career.

                  As we mentioned earlier, knowledge is power when it comes to breaking into a new industry. The more you know going into your new job, the less you’ll have to adjust to on that first day.

                  1. Emotional intelligence

                  Organizations have been looking for people who are emotionally intelligent for quite some time, but it’s becoming more and more important. What is emotional intelligence? It’s our ability to understand and express our own emotions, as well as understand someone else’s emotions. Developing emotional intelligence (EQ) is something everyone should be focusing on.

                  2. Creativity

                  As humans, we have this amazing ability to be creative, imagine, and invent new things. Creativity boosts innovation, which results in economic growth. It’s fresh thinking that will give companies a competitive advantage so every company will want creative employees in the future. If your company employs people who can figure out how to do things nobody else is doing, it will stand out. It’s important to realize that creativity isn’t the sole skill of artists. Creativity can be improved and fostered in anyone’s life.

                  3. Flexibility and adaptability

                  What we’re currently seeing is fewer and fewer skills and jobs for life. Therefore, we need to constantly adapt and learn new things. In fact, the half-life of skills is reducing at a drastic rate. What we’ve learned today will be out of date in two or three years’ time. Everyone will need to build their flexibility and adaptability skills, so they are prepared to update their skills every few years and accept new ways of doing things.

                  Holland Career Preferences

                  Firstly, occupational preferences refer to the individual interests and motivation — what the person really enjoys doing is matched with what the job actually involves and what the person will spend the majority of time doing.

                  Secondly, occupational preferences are matched with what the job actually involves and what the person will spend the majority of time doing. The most known theory is that of Holland (1985).

                  Holland’s suggested matching between six major types of personality and occupations:

                  • Realistic: an outdoor type. Prefers physical, mechanical and systematic jobs. E.g., toolmaker, mechanic.
                  • Investigative: analytical and curious jobs. E.g., research, chemist, physical scientist.
                  • Artistic: imaginative type. Prefers expressive and non-conforming jobs. E.g., designer.
                  • Social: training and helping jobs. E.g., social-worker, teacher, personnel.
                  • Enterprising: goal directed and socially manipulative jobs. E.g., managerial.
                  • Conventional: data and information manipulative jobs. E.g., clerical, accountancy.

                  – – – Career Guidance – – –

                  HOLLAND Part II

                  Holland suggests that a person should be described in terms of three types that resemble them most, and the order in which these three traits appear. This ends up with twenty-four personality types. For example, an ESI type is described best as enterprising, with strong social tendencies and minor intellectual tendencies. A typical career for an ESI person is a manager of retail store.

                  The six types can be represented in a hexagonal model. The six categories are ordered so that those with highest correlations are adjutant to each other; the correlations of pairs of categories opposite each other, are generally the lowest.

                  A large volume of research examined Holland’s theory. Although there is strong support to its psychometric model, the theory predictions of choice and change in the real world remain in doubt. There is strong evidence that vocational choices are related to personality profiles; furthermore, there is also evidence that matching is correlated with satisfaction and success. Yet, some researchers suggested that the strong association between personality and career choice is an artefact of the occupational choice measures. Most of the studies used questionnaires to measure occupational choice, rather than examining actual occupational choice. When the actual choice was used, the support to the theory was less certain.

                  – – – Career Fit Design – – –

                  Preferences Part III

                  The most common and comprehensive occupational preference test is the Strong Vocational Interest Blank (SVIB); other popular test is the Kuder Preference Record (KPR). The SVIB contains 399 items and provides three sets of scores. First, it provides scores on 22 basic interest scales, such as: public speaking, law politics, business management, sales, teaching, music, and adventure. Second, it provides scores on 45 occupational scales, such as dentist, architect, army officer, carpenter, personnel manager, librarian, accountant and sales manager. Finally, it provides scores on 8 non-occupational scales, such as academic achievement, managerial orientation and occupational level.

                  The SVIB is probably the best occupational preference test due to the vast information it provides. The consultant needs to send the results to the SVIB centre to get a plot of the results. An easier to score test that is very useful as well is the KPR. Unlike the SVIB it doesn’t have specific occupational scales, but rather have working areas and activities scales.

                  The two IN_ types which are probably the most susceptible to stress are the ‘Healer’ (INFP) and ‘Counsellor’ (INFJ). Collectively these have been termed the ‘Dreamers’.

                   MBTI ’Responders’ (ESTP and ESFP)

                  Typically, being ‘lost in the moment’ – being distracted or disorganized.

                  Typically, they quickly respond by re-adjusting their priorities, and hence their targets. The same applies to personal goals; earning these two MBTI types the very apt classification as the ‘responders’. Such time management responses allow them to adapt to the need to achieve a tangible outcome.
