To become a police officer at any of the 43 ‘Home Office’ police services in England and Wales that you have applied to, you MUST pass your Police Constable Assessment Centre (‘Day 1’).

‘Day 1’ is by far the hardest part of the whole selection process. Our comprehensive and engaging training will thoroughly prepare you for what you will undertake at ‘Day 1’ and give you the best chance of passing it. As the new online assessment is a national process, this live webinar is the one for you whether you are applying to the MET or Merseyside, Kent or Cumbria, or any of the 43 police services in England and Wales.

  • Our trainer is an expert in this subject having written and delivered this type of training on behalf of the Metropolitan Police.
  • His course was proven to increase candidates’ scores at their ‘Day 1’, and increase their chances of becoming a police officer.
  • EVERY EXTRA MARK that you gain really does COUNT at a time when joining the police has become a rare opportunity and more competitive than it has ever been.

This online webinar is also great even if you haven’t yet applied to the police, but intend to at some stage. It will let you know what to expect once you have applied. Crucially, it will identify any weaknesses that you may have well in advance of your ‘Day 1’ so that you have plenty of time to put them right.

For many, this event really will be the difference between becoming a police officer, or not. Reserve your spot on this live-streamed webinar and we can help you to achieve the career of your dreams.

STAGE 1 - Situational Judgement Test


  • The police situational judgement test consists of 12 scenarios and questions, each containing 4 potential answers;
  • Once a question has been displayed on-screen, you will be required to select one answer from 4 potential answers. The answer you select should reflect what you would do in the situation described;
  • All of the situational judgement test questions are based on police constable scenarios;
  • You will not need any prior technical knowledge to complete the test, the questions are to assess how you would best respond to a situation and the system will analyse if that matches with the required police core competencies and values.
STAGE 2 - Video Interview (competency and values-based)


  • You will be required to answer 5 competency-based interview questions using your webcam and microphone. Your answers are recorded live by the system;
  • You are presented with one question at a time, along with additional supplementary questions relating to the original question. You then have 1 minute to think about your answer;
  • Candidates then get 5 minutes to answer the question including the supplementary questions;
  • You will not be able to re-record your answers.
STAGE 3 - Written Exercise


  • You will undertake the role of a PC (police constable) for this task, where you are required to complete an urgent written task for your sergeant;
  • This task is likely to focus on an issue in the community;
  • You will be provided four sets of information (such as, potentially, a letter or email from a member of the public) that you can use to help form your written response;
  • You are required to type the written exercise on your device in your web browser.
STAGE 4 - Briefing Exercise


  • You will undertake the role of a PC (police constable) for this task, where you are presented with a scenario in which you are required to handle a series of issues;
  • During this exercise, you will be provided a set of questions relating to the issues from this scenario, which you must provide answers to;
  • You will be provided additional information and materials to aid your preparation within the first 10 minutes of the exercise;
  • After the preparation phase, you will have 36 minutes to present your answers broken down into the following stages:

Part 1 – Candidates have 12 minutes to answer 4 questions relating to the given scenario.

Part 2 – Candidates will then be given new information and have 12 minutes to answer 4 new questions.

Part 3 – Candidates will then be given further new information and have 12 minutes to answer 4 new questions.


  1. Attending training events of this type is proven to improve a candidate’s chances of passing their ‘Day 1’.
  2. It is vital that candidates score as high a percentage as possible at their ‘Day 1’ as often police services will ‘top slice’ the best candidates. This webinar will improve the score of the vast majority of people that stream it.
  3. A higher score at ‘Day 1’ is often what leads to police services inviting candidates to apply for accelerated promotion schemes.
  4. Attendees knowledge, preparation, and confidence levels will be improved.
  5. Attendees will be clear about what they have to do at the assessment. They will be taught tried and trusted ways to approach every exercise.
  6. Attendees will be given realistic practice resources and exercises to complete at home.
  7. Attendees will have their questions answered.
  8. Even after your training is over, attendees can still contact our expert trainer with any questions that subsequently occur to you.
  9. Our trainer has an excellent overall knowledge of the whole recruitment process. He will be able to answer plenty of your recruitment questions, not just ones relating to ‘Day 1’.
  10. Even though these webinars are proven to improve pass rates and performance, few are offered such training by the police service they are applying to. So streaming on this webinar will give candidates an advantage, that few would otherwise get the chance to receive.

This live-streamed webinar will allow you to gauge where you are in regards to your preparation for your assessment. This is because you will get an overview of all of the areas you need to prepare for before your online assessment centre. You will, of course, be free to ask questions and not just throughout the event, but after it as well. That’s because you can contact our expert trainer right up to the day before your assessment. This unique ‘aftercare’ service comes at no additional expense to yourself. You are extremely unlikely to be offered such support by the police service you are applying to, so give yourself an advantage by attending our webinar.


“On the 23rd May I participated in a webinar for a Police Officer Assessment center with David Bebb. The webinar was very helpful and was great to have the help/advice from someone with David’s experience and was also a massive benefit of having a telephone conversation with David after the tutorial. I would highly recommend any David for anyone looking into the role of a Police Officer.”
