Interview and assessment of the candidate

  1. Each application, with the self-assessment and all references, will be read by 2 Selection Panel members (one lay; one professional) in preparation for interview. Any application which appears to the Panel members on the information available not to demonstrate the competencies sufficiently to make them at that stage a credible candidate for appointment in the instant year may be put to the full Selection Panel for a decision to treat the application as unsuccessful.
  2. The full Selection Panel will then conduct a review of these decisions, including collective moderation of any borderline cases.
  3. All candidates whose application is not to be treated as unsuccessful at this stage will be interviewed by two members of the Selection Panel (one lay and one professional). The interview will be directed at the competencies with a view to adducing further evidence as to their demonstration by the candidate, and resolving any questions over the application.
  4. Following interview, at least 2 Selection Panel members (one lay; one professional) will grade the candidate.
  5. The full Selection Panel will then conduct a review of these initial grades. There will then be collective moderation, scrutiny of borderline cases, and the list of successful candidates will be finalised. It will not be open to the Selection Panel to call any candidate for further interview.
  6. Selection Panel members will prepare written feedback comments for each unsuccessful applicant.
