After you are appointed as a serving officer we will assist you with your police career so that you can get into a specialist role, pass a promotion selection board or be selected for the High Potential Development Scheme.Many serving officers we have assisted with recruit selection are now serving in specialist departments like Roads Policing and the Criminal Investigation Department. Many have also been promoted.
To assist you we can provide interview techniques training and design a bespoke package to meet the needs of the particular selection process you will have to undertake.
We pride ourselves in striking a personal relationship with you. You are not just a client; you will be a friend of ISP Consultancy and we will be your mentor and source of guidance as your career progresses.
We work with police forces across the country helping officers with personal development, team working and leadership. We operate inside and outside the police force so we are aware of developments in policing. These developments are incorporated into our police recruitment training and police career development packages.
We believe that the police force needs different people to deal with our constantly changing and diverse society. There is a place for you in the police force providing you have the attributes and aptitude for the job.
Try the Aptitude Test to see if you have the right outlook to become a police officer. The result of the test will give you advice and guidance on how you can develop yourself to assist your application to the police service.
These tests are designed to complement the ISP paperback ‘Police Selection Boards’ and are specifically focused on identifying your team and leadership styles that are explained in the book. By completing them you will be able to understand your own styles in the work place.
Once you have completed the questionnaires you will be provided with a numerical score in each of the four key style components: Direct, Spirited, Considerate and Systematic. You should insert the scores for team style into the appropriate boxes on page 71 of the chapter on team working and the scores for leadership style into the boxes on page 107 of the chapter on leadership. You can then interpret your scores from the explanation provided and determine your dominant style.
