Due to the Corona virus, we want to play our part in reducing risks to people, whilst still providing the opportunity for people to take part in our courses. Looking at all the advice, it would seem sensible and ethical for us not to run courses that involve gathering in one place such as a conference room.
We are also aware that the College of Policing are currently advising that police officer recruitment carries on, subject to Chief officer decision, presumably ahead of any potential civil unrest.
Talking Blues have decided that we will switch our course onto an online “live” streaming format until the situation returns to normal. The course format, content and trainers will be identical to normal, just on a live stream, except that due to studio opening hours, you will only do one role play as candidate, and observe five others. So, it’s a 160 page manual, a full day of tuition, and additional local interview input if needed, for £95. Everything you need to pass in a day
The various links on our site, such as the buttons on the menu at the top of the home page, (like the one labelled SEARCH course) will drop down to tell you more about us and our course. Additionally, you can get full details of what the live stream course consists of by clicking the button below
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 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 are VAT registered, 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:
20 full role play exercises with role actor instructions and a full marking guide. There are also four full written exercises in the manual, with specimen answers, along with notes on potential or probable interview questions. 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.
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 SEARCH recruitment process, there are six such skills for example. The free video below explains these. 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.
