Our Latest Review



Adam J. (Police Service applicant) 23/3/17.

I have applied for several police forces and been a special and a police staff employee. However I wasn’t passing the assessments and interview to join as an officer. I had passed and failed the assessment centre and also a final interview. I really wasn’t sure what I was doing wrong.

I booked Huw for a session to get me through the assessment centre, in particular the interview portion of it. Huw went through the answer models and we developed my examples to fit the competencies being tested. A passing mark was obtained.

I also booked Huw to get me through my final interview where we developed my answers to reflect the deeper understanding of the competencies and better sell myself in the interview. I was successful and now on my way to my dream career which I’ve worked long and hard for.

Forget “pass courses”. This is quite easily the best investment I have made in my career as the tuition is focussed on you and your experiences. It develops those understandings of the competencies to really hit the positive indicators and blow away the interviewer. The best bit, not a buzzword was mentioned at any stage!!!
