I used the Online Learning Programme for the Sergeants Promotion process. I was successful and thought the programme was very beneficial.

CS PC -Sgt – Insp 

I can’t recommend bselectedpolice highly enough. They gave me structure and the knowledge on what is required to pass an assessment centre. I recently passed my Sgt to Insp with the help of bselected.  It’s a very small price to pay for the confidence it will give you to be successful. Best of luck to you all.

I’ve been Ospre qualified for six years but kept dipping the process. I did this course and got the skills & confidence required to pass my board at the next attempt. Great work guys!

Mark Sgt – Insp 

I would very much recommed bselectedpolice. I did a course with two others from my department and we were ALL successfull in the next sgts process!!…. worth every penny!

Andy PS to Sgt

I passed! I’m so pleased, I applied the structure taught by bselectedpolice to all three sections of the process. In both the role play and written in tray I scored well and my feedback for all sections….was that I had a clear structure which I followed and was able to deliver a competent answer.

I’m so pleased I came on your course! Following the online learning programme and Masterclass I worked extremely hard to learn the competencies and structure you advised for each section. This is what got me through, without learning that foundation from yourselves to apply my own examples to I don’t feel I would have felt confident going into it and would not have performed well.

I can’t thank you enough, after two years as a Temporary Inspector…I’m so very relieved at not being reverted and looking forward to getting my own proper job in the new year!

Nicola Sgt – Insp 

Hi guys. I’ve just been notified I passed my Police Scotland promotion process :):). I used all the stuff you covered with me over the Skype 1-2-1 sessions, e.g. REDSTAR+, and I scored well. Your help was vital in me getting a structured response prepared for each question.  I just wanted to say thank you for your help as it really made a difference!

I just wanted to say thank you for your support throughout my prep for the recent Inspector boards. This was third time lucky for me and I was successful! Preparing my examples with the model meant that I could deliver it in an organised way under pressure, which only proves that being flexible with it once you’re familiar with STAR PLUS  really does pay off. Most of the questions were forward facing so REDSTaR was very useful and really helped me structure my thoughts and settle my nerves and order what I was going to say and how. I also found your webinars very useful and you the masterclass was invaluable. Practicing in front of others really helped prepare me for those interview nerves. I would definitely recommend you to anyone doing a Board!

Anon PC – Insp 

Previously I went about my preparation all wrong, making me nervous and lose confidence. The knowledge of what is expected and the structure to deliver my evidence made me much more confident and able to deliver. Thank you bselectedpolice!

I passed with a score of 73%. My first attempt at the Inspectors process. The bselectedpolice course was certainly money well spent. I was confident with the structure and content going in, which helped me to give a good account of myself. I will certainly recommend your course to colleagues.

Karl PC – Sgt 

This was the best move I ever made. After 8 years of being in the dark, switched the lights on for me. Wouldn’t have passed my Inspectors board without them.

I completed the online programme followed by the one day intensive course. I found the whole programme a wake up call having failed the promotion process and many interviews previously. Bselected really gave me the focus and the means to prepare myself properly and this ultimately lead to my success in the process. I scored really well and even managed top marks in some areas. I’d have been completely in the dark without the programme and I’d recommend it in a heartbeat.
Chris PC – Sgt 

Big thanks to bselectedpolice for helping me through my sergeants board. Having been unsuccessful previously I needed some clear direction to refocus my preparation. Ben and Neil helped me see the process through fresh eyes, and delivered a very personal service. Highly recommended.

I attended the bselected free Seminar at ESR (MPS) and made the decision then and there to purchase their Online Learning Programme. This completely demystified the process for me and helped me to focus on what was important. I was really impressed with the content and format of the programme. I’m pleased to say I went into the assessment centre confident and prepared – and I smashed It! Top marks in the interview and very impressive feedback. Thanks bselected!
Jack PC – Sgt 

I attended last Nov 2016 for the day course with seven PC’s from Bury. It was in preparation for a March – May 2017 promotion process.Six out of the seven of us passed the promotion process. Without a shadow of a doubt it was your course that made the difference.

I am very pleased to say I have passed my sergeant’s promotion board. The Superintendent on the interview panel said ‘you didn’t just pass, you flew through it!’ I obviously benefitted from attending your masterclass.
Bruce PC – Sgt 
Just a quick note to say thanks for your support through the bselected course. I left things a bit late and completed the masterclass with less than a week to go  before my board with West Yorkshire! The online content alone was worth doing and really changed my views on STAR and what I had been doing so far. The class itself was an invaluable test bed for what I had learned online and have no doubt I owe the pass to the skills I gained during the training. Having acted for over 5 years I honestly thought I would NEVER get through, but passed just six days after the training. Thanks again!!

Hi guys. Just to let you know I was successful in my Sergeant’s board today! Thank you for taking me under your wing at short notice. I’ll be sure to recommend your company to anyone thinking about applying for a promotion or a job. It really was useful and I genuinely believe that I would not have done as well today without Ben and David’s guidance.
Craig PC – Sgt 
Having decided to make my first real attempt at Sgts Promotion in 25yrs I didn’t know where to begin. I found Ben from Bselected on a google search and invested in some coaching. These sessions opened my eyes on the interview skills I needed to pass my board. What Ben Ewart taught me, gave me the confidence and ability to enhance my evidence and deliver it successfully. I can honestly say that Ben’s ability to inspire and guide my work helped me get through the most anxious time of my career. Would I recommend him ? Absolutely…

A fresh perspective on interview preparation and interview technique, invaluable assistance from Ben and the team in what is a very competitive process.

Just had to tell you my news…I passed the Sergeants process!!!!! :-)))))I am so chuffed, I cannot tell you! Thank you very much for our one to one sessions they helped to shape my preparation and put me on the right track which helped massively with my structure and planning. I had lost total confidence after badly failing a board 7 years ago, you gave me the confidence to try again and it paid off!

I have been a police officer for nearly 19 years. Every exam I have taken I have scored exceptional, but I could not pass my Sergeant’s board. This year I attended a bselected Masterclass. I have failed boards, been refused acting opportunities as I have already acted so I had to go to board with examples that had already failed – this year I passed! So it wasn’t my examples but my technique that failed me. bselected totally supported me in every way, it gave me objective advice and Ben gave me the confidence and inspiration I needed. I cannot give enough support and credit to Ben and his team for what they did for me
Nicola PC – PS 

Neil really helped me to focus on the key aspects of the process and discard peripheral things I was becoming bogged down with. On reflection, I believe that time spent with Neil on interview prep and techniques, gave me the edge I needed to pass. The one to one sessions were definitely the right choice for my learning style, direct and focused. They pulled me back to centre and gave me the confidence to enjoy the process. Before I booked in with Neil, my head was like a spud in a blender. After, It felt like a lily on a lake, actually able to prepare and a lot of confusion gone, focused on what I needed to do. I actually enjoyed the assessment day and still can’t believe I passed!

Having been recommended by newly promoted Inspectors, I booked the bselectedpolice Masterclass and found that the course content and material most definitely helped towards my success! I passed my Sgts promotion assessment coming 4th out of 459 candidates! I would definitely recommend to anyone applying for promotions or interviews, thank you!
Elizabeth PC – PS 
This course gave me the structure, tools and understanding on how to approach, prepare and deliver my examples for the Sergeants process.The combined knowledge of Ben and Neil is a winning combination and makes you think completely outside the box and the support and guidance was second to none. It gave me the confidence to succeed in the latest process and I will be going to them on the next. Worth every penny.

Hi guys, I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know I’ve been successful in the recent GMP Sgt’s process! I want to give you some positive feedback about the course and how I think it really gave me the right focus and guidance on how to best ready myself for the assessment centre. It obviously worked very well and I wanted to say thanks, not just for the input itself but also that you were able to pull together the course at relatively short notice! I have already begun singing your praises to colleagues.
Phil PC – PS 
Hi guys, I got my sgts results and I have passed! I just wanted to say thank you to you both for all your help and support. I can honestly say I truly believe your course gave me the skills and confidence to get through the process. It really did make all the difference. I will definitely recommend you to colleagues who are going through the promotion process.

The process went very well for me. I successfully passed all stages with merit. I would like to thank you guys massively for this. There is no doubt in my head whatsoever that I would not have passed the interview without the help from yourselves. The course was a game changer for me. 
Gerry PC – PS 
I just wanted to say, I passed my Sgts first time in a very competitive process thanks to your knowledge and  help. I struggled with structure and waffling and bselectedpolice helped me massively understand the process and improved my confidence. I would definitely highly recommend this company to help anyone going for promotion, as their knowledge is second to none.

I was told about bselectedpolice by colleagues entering inspectors promotions who had nothing but high regard for the courses and tutors. I decided to attend a Masterclass on this positive praise, for my Sergeants final assessment in April 2017.  The course content, advice and support that bselected gave me, highly influenced my interview style in a positive way.  This investment paid off tenfold when I was told that I had successfully passed and was promoted on my first attempt. I would like to pass on my gratitude to  Ben and Neil for all their professionalism, effort, commitment and advice not just on the course but the aftercare on run up to my assessment day. If you are serious about your promotion and are willing to work hard, get yourself to a free seminar and listen to what bselectedpolice have to say – what have you got to loose?

Steve PC – PS 
Thanks for your support and the excellent course.I am glad to report I passed my Sgt Promotion (GMP). Thanks once again and I will continue to recommend your services far and wide!

I attended one of your master classes in March and I found out today that I passed my promotion assessment centre to become a sergeant! I just wanted to say thanks for all your help, advice and support, it really was invaluable and such an eye opener for me! This was my first ever promotion process and I’ve never been acting/temping previously so this really was completely new to me, the day was so informative and really helped me to focus my mind on what I needed to do. Thank you again and I will most certainly recommend you to any of my colleagues who are considering going for promotion, I’m so glad I did!
Samantha PC – PS 

I’d just like to say a quick thank you. After attending your masterclass in Manchester, I was successful at my board and I’m now on the promotion select list. The day was extremely helpful and the model you guys use and explained was exactly what I needed. Of the six questions on the board, three were example type questions and I scored 7 on each question (out of 9) putting me in the top performing band. After failing my previous board and getting feedback stating I lacked structure and details to my answers, the course was just what I needed and gave me the confidence to succeed this time. I’ve already recommended you to several colleagues who will be going through the same process at the end of this year / start of next.

After numerous promotion board failures I attended the 1 day masterclass. This explained the process, busted a few myths  and showed me how to focus my answers. I was subsequently successful at my next board. The Masterclass was invaluable to this success and I would very highly recommend it.

Nick PC – PS 

I booked onto a full day and arrived apprehensive of what I had let myself in for and what I was going to take away. Ben and Neil were there and both personally greeted me an made me feel welcome. It was straight down to business for a full on day of learning, development and self reflection.  Both Ben and Neil gave confident presentations and really knew their stuff about all of the different forces and their promotion processes. The afternoon session, where I genuinely practiced answering a competency based question using the structure that I learnt in the morning, was invaluable. Ben and Neil were tough but fair giving feedback and always gave a solution to make it right. I was successful in passing my current forces Sergeant to Inspector process and also another forces promotion process, which has put me in a great position to be able to choose between them!! I can honestly say that I used the structure and technique I learnt on my day with bselectedpolice for both forces, even though they ran things very differently! I would definitely recommend to anyone considering promotion to attend the full day with bselectedpolice!

After attending a masterclass course in December, unfortunately all promotion in West Midlands had been put on hold for review of the processes. However, I recently applied for a post as Force hostage and crisis negotiator, an on-call post in addition to my current role. I dug out my masterclass notes in preparation, and was successful through paper sift, assessment scenario day and then invited for interview board. I have been informed I have passed the interview and am now officially in post, awaiting national courses at Hendon! Anyway, I thought I’d share my little success story with you. I think revision of the masterclass material got me back in the zone! Thanks for your help

Helen 

The Masterclass gave me the quick realisation that I was nowhere near the level of preparedness for the upcoming promotion process that was required. However, I was able to walk out that afternoon with a focus and a plan. Despite this being my first time attempting the promotion process, or even being in front of such an interview panel, I was able to pass all stages successfully. I also felt that the advice and tips given by Ben along the way gave me an edge over the other candidates. Thank you bselectedpolice.

I did the full day masterclass and found it really useful to start preparing my examples, giving me focus for what I needed to do. Preparation definitely worked for me and it’s a lovely feeling that I have passed my Sgts interview.
Money well spent. Thanks Ben & Neil

Ciarra PC to PS

I can highly recommend the bselectedpolice masterclass. I finished the day buzzing with enthusiasm and confidence and I took this into my Inspectors board. I have just received my results and have found out I will finally be getting promoted. I scored 5,5,5,5, and 4 on my board and this is something I’m sure I wouldn’t have achieved without the masterclass. Thank you Ben and Neil, not just for the day but  the continued support that followed afterwards.

I attended bselectedpolice’s promotion success masterclass and can highly recommend the day. Ben and Neil really put you at ease and through their experience and knowledge gave me all I needed to prepare for my interview. The day is formed of a great balance of knowledge input and practical exercise, this is also filmed so you can really track your progress! Highly recommended for any sector, not just my own.

Rob PS to Insp Fast Track

I just wanted to let you know that after your promotion Masterclass I took part in a 4 hour assessment centre, which consisted of PPF Interview, Presentation and Operational Briefing. I am really pleased to say that I was successful and very pleasantly surprised to see I got awarded Grade 1 in interview, the top mark! I was thrilled to bits and have no doubt that the course I did with you absolutely made a difference. Thank you both very much

I used bselectedpolice after narrowly missing out on promotion in 2014, I had all the evidence, skills and ability but couldn’t get my examples across on interview. I took part in the full day master class in September 2016 and it opened my eyes to what I had been missing in previous interviews, the direct feedback on the day was “no-nonsense”, but, very constructive and delivered in a developmental and encouraging manner. After this, I had my board in December, with the added pressure of all the other members of the master class having already passed their respective board. I passed with flying colours scoring 24 with the pass mark being 14, I felt confident going in and the techniques and knowledge gleaned from the course enabled me to do justice to my experience and examples in the interview.

Helen PS to Insp

Hi guys, I am pleased to say I was successful! There were 25 places available and around 70 applicants. I scored in the top 3, which I am delighted with! I have no doubt that the masterclass in January greatly helped and improved my chances. Many thanks.

To be honest, I thought the free seminar was going to be an hour of marketing. But it was a punch in the face and reality check!

Police Sergeant

This is a no nonsense course that has very clear objectives: to focus your preparation on passing promotion processes, give you the theory that you require and then show you how to implement that theory through mock interviews. The coaching was superb and made the difference for me to pass my board. I would recommend bselected to any PSNI officer who is going through the new promotion process.

I thought I would invest in myself and spend money to develop towards promotion as I had failed at promotion at interview stage in the past. I did a full day which did cost me but was worth it! I found it good to see people at different ranks perform as I used some of their ideas. What I really enjoyed was the interview practice and role play. The tactics and approach taught by bselected allowed me to be successful at promotion to Sergeant! Thank you!.

Chris PC to PS

The masterclass was invaluable in preparing me for the promotion process. The interview technique delivered allows for a structured response to the questions asked and allows for you to not only answer the question but also easily hit the competencies that you are scored upon. Using this I flew through the interview section of the process with top marks and this went a long way to be successful overall. If you’re serious about promotion then you need to seriously look at attending this. Ryan PC to PS

I just wanted to say thank you to you and Ben for a great course. You both are clearly very passionate about your work and this certainly came across in your delivery and presentation. The course was very intense, engaging and opened my eyes to where I was previously going wrong in preparing myself for police promotion. You have now given   me an easy, can do, structured framework to follow and I came away from the course feeling motivated and well equipped.

Caren PS to Insp

Just wanted to let you know that I was successful today in interview to a temp inspectors role. I used as much as I could cram in the 4 days notice and it made a MASSIVE difference having been on your training. I wanted to say a big thank you to you and Ben

I went into the board preparation at a late stage. Unfortunately due to operational demands I had little to no time to prepare. However thanks to the Bselected Masterclass I went into the process better prepared with guidance and structure to help me focus. I passed my board and would like to thank Neil and Ben for their training, support and encouragement.

Mo PC to PS

I have been unsuccessful in a couple of promotion interviews recently and couldn’t really understand why. I had paid for other company coaching products and hammered their content home during the interviews. Yet my feedback was random and confusing. Then, after attending the bselected police course the penny dropped. The difference between a leadership interview and a behavioural competency interview is worlds apart. How did I not understand this? Now I do. The course presented by Neil and Ben was worth every penny and is hard hitting. Now I feel ready for the next promotion process board! Oh and make sure you book the full masterclass. There’s no substitute for the video role play module.

This was a fantastic, intense and engaging course which opened my eyes to why I had previously failed my Sgts board. The location and facilaties on the day were brilliant, as was the follow up to the course. 6 weeks later I went into my board feeling confident that I was as prepared as I could be and passed. I couldn’t recommend this course enough.

Karen PC to PS

I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone serious about promotion. Its not a cheap course, but then its not a cheap product and in my opinion it is money very well spent. The knowledge from a experienced recruitment professional combined with that of a police assessor really makes it a top class course, as it adresses all the interview elements and gives valuable guidance. For me the most useful part was the series of interviews throughout the day around answering questions whilst the hitting competencies. The continual feedback I got about my delivery method and style was also invaluable. The post course support was really useful too. Happy to put my name to recommending this course as I genuinely think it’s worthwhile.

David was instrumental in my progression to the rank of Sergeant. His knowledge of the process was exceptional. David is an inspirational communicator and helped me at each stage of the process…resulting in me delivering at my best!

Kevin PC to PS

Neil/Ben, just to let you both know I have recently been successful in the Police Promotion Boards that I took!.  The course which I attended in Manchester was a great help, especially the RED STAR which assisted a great deal in my preparation for the Presentation.  In fact I got an email from the Chief Inspector who interviewed me which stated that I DIDN’T PASS THE BOARD, I SMASHED IT!

I will certainly be recommending your course to other colleagues who are serious about promotion as it definitely assisted me to be successful.

I had not done an interview for 11 years and had really low confidence after returning from Maternity leave.  I had passed my OSPRE  1 & 2 for over 5 years and was keen to progress.  I contacted bselected after a recommendation from a friend.  They built me up, gave me useable skills for interview, provided support after the course and a Mock on the week of my Inspectors Interview.  What they train you in, REALLY works.  Without realising it, I easily fell into the structure on interview, it felt comfortable and gave me something to build my answer on. I passed and I passed well. I am so pleased I took the step to get some professional coaching – well worth it.

A quick email to thank you for yesterday’s masterclass. I was very impressed with the day, the extensive knowledge you guys have and how you look to improve our interview technique was first class.

Gary PS to Insp

I attended the one day Police Promotion Masterclass and found it incredibly informative. For years I thought I knew how the competency interviews worked, but within a matter of hours it was clear that my understanding was flawed. I learnt more about what was required in a competency based interview in this one day masterclass than I had learnt in 12 years as a Police Officer. Do I feel more prepared for upcoming interviews – yes, absolutely. Do I recommend this course – yes, absolutely.

I attended a beselected one day masterclass with Neil and Ben in Manchester. It was one of the most useful and informative inputs I’ve had when it comes to preparation for the police promotion interview. Apparent right from the start was both Neil and Ben’s experience and breadth of knowledge and their friendly style of delivery made the day fantastic. I took so much from the day, especially about focusing and structuring my answers and getting the most from my examples, something which I personally knew I needed to improve. Watching myself back on video at the end of the day compared to the start was quite the eye opener in seeing how much I improved over such a short space of time. I would highly recommend the court to anyone that’s serious about getting through their promotion boards.

Fez PS to Insp

The promotion board process always felt like a bit of a lottery and something that “other people” always seem to grasp . Having failed a board in 2015 I felt a little lost as to what was actually required to pass. I was told about bselected by a colleague who recommended them to me and I attended a full day Bselected promotion masterclass in March 2016 hoping to improve my technique , understanding and confidence. The day was intense but showed me what I needed to do to pass and gave some simple but  really effective structure and technique of how to prepare and deliver answers that stand out from the crowd. Neil and Ben changed my perspective of competency based processes and  provided the tools to succeed,  highlighting  how and  where  to channel my efforts  in my preparation for the written application and interview board . Hard work and practice are still a must but I’ve just passed an incredibly competitive Inspectors board with an interview score of 92%…! If you want promotion  then this course is invaluable!

The bselected Situational Judgment Test was the closest to the Met SJT I could find anywhere and was good practice the day before for me.

Stuart PS to Insp

I was recently interviewed along with a number of my colleagues for a temporary promotion. Most of the questions were forward facing situational with some behavioural questions. Having been on the Police Promotion Success Masterclass with Neil and Ben I was able to use bselected’s unique “REDSTAR” structure to help provide detailed answers that flowed well. Not only did I get the job, I was given feedback that my performance was extremely high scoring.

I attended a one day Police Promotion Masterclass  prior to a competency based interview and found it to be extremely helpful. The day was very well planned and provided you with the knowledge required and then steadily introduced it through many mock interviews. Being able to watch yourself back on video with Neil’s feedback was invaluable and meant you learnt a lot about yourself and how to improve. Neil’s style and honesty gave me the confidence I needed and highlighted to me that preparation is key. Neil kept in touch afterwards and utilised FaceTime to conduct a mock interview going beyond what I expected. I would recommend bselected and believe it helped me to success.

Bella DC to DS

Just a quick thank you note. I’m one of 3 Sergeants who attended one of your bselected Police Promotion Masterclassess prior to the recent Met Inspectors process, all 3 of us found out today that we passed the assessment centre! I genuinely don’t think we would have passed without your input.

Prior to an extremely competitive competency related promotion interview, I felt I had internal gremlins, telling and convincing me that I would fail.  I enrolled on Police Promotion Board Success Masterclass for an individualised approach that would teach me a structure enabling a measured response thus boosting my confidence and performance. The bselected Police Promotion Board Masterclass gave me the essential interview structure I required and bselected’s aftercare gave me extra confidence through practise, hints and tips and extended literature.  Anyway, I passed and I have no doubt that Neil and bselected was a significant contributory factor.

I decided to take the bselected Police Promotion Masterclass after researching the internet for promotion courses. bselected seemed the one that would give me all the information I needed and ongoing support after the course.  Being interviewed by Neil and watching back the video of it to see my technique, body language and slip ups was very informative.  Throughout the day we could all see ourselves improving our interview technique and by the end of the day we were all satisfied with our progress.  I was given advice on my evidence and how best to convey the important points over to the interviewer. Neil and Ben were available for any questions or information needed after the course and the one to one Skype session with Neil just before my board was very beneficial. I attended my Board feeling very nervous but knowledgeable about my subjects.  I received grade 5 for Operational Effectiveness, Resource Management and Values with a grade 4 for Organisational Influence. So a total of 19 out of 20.  This was down to a lot of work being put into the evidence and a very good blue print from bselected to start me off.

I found the bselected course to be incredibly useful in preparing for my recent successful police promotion board. It gave me the confidence to deliver my responses to the best of my ability, take control of the interview and stay calm. After the course I felt like I had been let into a secret about the ‘rules of the game’ and this helped me to prepare so much more effectively.

In preparation for my board I attended a Promotion Masterclass day with Neil and Ben at bselected. Their combination and breadth of experience (recruitment industry and the Police service) was evident and extremely useful. For me the most useful parts were around the rehearsal of questioning by an interviewer. I watched myself (literally on video) improve throughout the day. It’s one thing to understand the process, and get a confidence booster. It’s another to be mock interviewed, with an opportunity to promptly review yourself whilst getting a professional critique. The self awareness and critiques skills can and should be continued after the session. Ben and Neil were on hand to skype or contact throughout. I would recommend this to anyone approaching a board.

David… quickly put my mind at ease and inspired me to believe that the next rank is there for me to take. I was positive and presented my examples with structure, technique and passion…alleviating any fear I had…resulting in success!” .

Thanks to Neil and Ben for rechipping how I deliver interview answers.  I thought I understood how to deliver and where I would pick up marks in my answers I was mistaken.  I am now hoping that the new skills I have learnt will help me get promoted.

Prior to attending the bselected training course, I was completely unprepared for what was required to succeed in an interview. My decision to attend the training course was one of my best ever. It provided me with the necessary knowledge and confidence in order to prepare sufficiently for my interview and then to perform highly during the interview. Thanks to Neil, I have now achieved promotion and know that the bselect course was vital in achieving this.

I approached bselected because I had my promotional sergeants board the following month and a number of colleagues had passed on Neil’s details to me and said how much they valued his expertise and help. bselected helped me by giving invaluable tips and advice on the sergeants masterclass and beyond. One thing I particularly valued was Neil’s dedication and the fact that he stayed in touch and offered encouragement all the way up to the date of my board, scheduling in extra Skype sessions as part of the overall cost. I went into the interview with tons more confidence and I passed my board. I’m convinced that I would not have been so successful had I not done bselected’s Police Promotion Board Masterclass. I found the experience very positive, well worth investing in and I would definitely go to bselected again for help in the future.
