Application form, with self assessment
- Candidates will be required to complete an application form, to include a “self assessment”, allowing the candidate to provide his or her own evidence against published competences. The form will also require candidates to disclose criminal convictions or findings of professional misconduct. The Selection Panel takes the view that under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 a candidate need not disclose a spent conviction and the Panel will not take a spent conviction into account when considering a candidate.
- Those who anticipate applying in the future will be encouraged to make contemporaneous notes about their work in order to help them complete the self assessment when the time came for their applications to be made.
