Someone I spoke to before the test said their supervisor was affiliated with the Surrey course and told them the SJT had been the best predictor of performance on training in the past so it is a big shame that it was not used. I wonder how this will impact the intake and whether they made other con...

Hi all. I’m looking for some advice and info about PBS. I’m currently working as an AP in a residential school for children and young adults with Autism, and currently they’re consulting and considering implementing PBS more officially within the service.

Re: Pre-interview tests UEL/Salomons

Re: Doing a conversion course and options

If you don’t have any experience in relevant areas I would suggest support work / nursing assistant / healthcare assistant as a good starting point in any relevant area. You can do bank work whilst doing your course so you are flexible on how many shifts you do depending on your uni workload and dea...

Re: Pre-interview tests UEL/Salomons

Yeah I don’t think there’s much notice but if you think you meet the minimum criteria keep the day free and get revising! It’s weird to revise when you don’t even know for sure you’re sitting the test but I’m starting to prep now

Re: Any interest in an applications webinar?

I’d be happy with any of those topics, all sound useful! I have one screening test this year (Surrey) so as others have said that could be useful too!
