New South Wales Police Foundation Level Areas
The “T.R.I.C” is to provide evidence!
T – Teamwork
R – Resilience
I – Integrity
C – Communication
You’ll need to provide evidence of these qualities by sharing personal or professional examples that clearly demonstrate your ability to utilise these qualities effectively. It’s vitally important you can articulate the circumstances, what actions you took and the impact of those actions. Choose high-quality examples, that are relevant, and be very specific about each stage when you deliver your answer.
You might also have to demonstrate your aptitude for policing by answering scenario-based questions that ask you to explain how you might handle different situations experienced by police officers on a daily basis.
How Important Is The NSWPOL Panel Interview?
The Selection Panel Interview is possibly the most important stage of your application and can be the one area that increases your applicant score more than any other. The New South Wales Police Panel Interview is your chance to demonstrate that you have the required skills and qualities to make you a successful police officer. It’s your chance to shine!
You’ll need to identify good quality, relevant, life experiences to draw on in order to provide some evidence that your abilities, your values and your behaviour are consistent with those of New South Wales Police. Providing specific examples of leadership, professionalism, engagement, decision making and problem-solving, communication and interpersonal skills, self -reflection and teamwork will all be expected of you in a police panel interview.
Don’t stress! In our selection panel interview preparatory course, we’ll show you
- how to identify the good, the bad and the ugly experiences to ensure you’re offering up only the best and most relevant evidence
- our simple technique for finding several examples you can choose from for each question
- how to structure your answers correctly, and no, it’s not as simple as just using the STAR Method, that’s only the beginning
- what you don’t even know, that you don’t know!
- what to say and, just as importantly, what not to say!
- more than 50 video-recorded role-playing examples, with feedback, that you can select from to get ideas about your similar experiences and how to leverage them
