If you are thinking of applying to become a police officer, you are probably aware how challenging the recruitment system can be. For 19 years, Talking Blues has been  the largest specialist training provider of preparation courses to get you through your assessment, with a unique money back on the day quality guarantee. We run between 40 and 60 courses a year. We have been specifically commissioned to provide assessment preparation courses by five police forces, where they have sponsored BME candidates.

Talking Blues understands that your police career is important to you. Anyone can tell you what the process is about, or even help you get a certificate. That is not what we do. We help you think like  a Police Officer so you can become a Police Officer. There is a significant difference between the two things. Helping you into your police career is our profession, which is why we have an actual office, and are listed at Companies House. It is also why we offer a money back on the day promise.

A key element of our course is our manual. This is a professionally printed and finished document, and contains, amongst other things:

Specimen exercises, notes and developmental actions to aid your preparation. You can get further information on what it contains by clicking here  http://www.talkingblues.co.uk/our-course-manual/

The quality of our training is such that we have been chosen by a number of major UK forces to provide our assessment centre courses specifically to assist their female, BME and LGBT candidates maximise their chances of passing.

We look forward to helping you achieve your police career.

The Talking Blues team.

Our Training Director, former Inspector John McTaggart, pioneered police recruitment training. He has coached literally thousands of students through the recruitment process. As well as writing our 160 page course manual, he is also the author of “The definitive Guide to Passing the Police Recruitment Process” (available on Amazon).

What skills are the police service looking for?

Whatever system you are going to undertake as a candidate, you will be assessed against a number of skills and abilities. Under the online Stage 1 to 3 recruitment process, there are four values for example. These are then underpinned by six competencies. All of these are put into three clusters. The free video below explains these and the new exercises. The new system has used different words, but the bottom line is that the things a good police officer needs remain the same. Watch the short presentation for more information. We put the skills  into a policing context for you as well. It’s not about buzzwords.

Dear John,

I attended your Talking Blues course at the start of last month in addition to purchasing your book. I’m thrilled to say I passed the Assessment Centre shortly afterwards and got confirmation that I passed my force interview with Sussex Police yesterday! I cannot tell you how much of difference your course and book made and it was worth every penny of the fee plus the long trek to Hatfield.

To give you a bit of perspective, I am a Special Constable and of the four of us from my class that applied to become regulars, only I made it through I was the only one of us who attended your course. I have no doubt that the combination of your course and book provided me with the confidence and capability needed to pass both of these assessments.

Needless to say I have no hesitation in recommending your course to anyone looking to follow my path and, indeed, I have strongly recommended that one of my colleagues attends your course next time the window for officers opens down here.

So thank you again for your services – both attending your seminar and reading your book were an absolute pleasure.

Kind regards,

MH

John,

Just wanted to say thanks to you and Graeme for a great day yesterday. I had just done a half day preparation session in force. Which anyone could attend, and was bit sceptical about paying to come on your course. I can honestly say though that whilst the half day just told me stuff I already knew, your techniques and methods of tackling the exercises were excellent.

I now feel much better about attending the assessment centre, all I have to do is put what you say into action!

Thanks again for a hugely informative day, and you and Graham are two funny guys!

Regards
