Shortlisting and allocation to interview
If you pass the situational judgement test, your application goes through a shortlisting panel. They will score it against each of the criteria in the person specification.
The panel members do not have access to your:
- equal opportunities data
- fitness to practice data
- employment history sections of the application form
- personal data
Applications are then ranked in order of their total score. In the event of tied scores, an algorithm is applied. This may include scores from the situational judgment test. The highest scoring applicants will then go through to interview. The shortlisting dates are available here.
There will be one allocation to interview per post. There will also be a reserve list in case any shortlisted applicants withdraw.
When shortlisting is complete, your status on Oriel will change to one of the following:
- shortlisted – you will be invited to interview
- shortlisted reserve – you may be invited to interview, possibly at short notice, if a candidate in your chosen specialty withdraws or if an applicant allocated to a post is unsuccessful at interview
- shortlist unsuccessful – your application will not progress any further
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview. Interviews are conducted according to strict guidelines to ensure consistency. You will have only one opportunity of an interview, with a single employer. Interviews will be conducted online through a video-conferencing platform.
Interview outcome and allocation process
After your interviews you will be contacted by the employer and informed of the outcome. If you are successful, your details will be sent to the employer. This could take up to 4 weeks. They will then start their employment processes.
You will be an employee of the training centre, and you will stay in their employment for the full three years of training. Once your details are sent to your new employer, the School’s involvement ceases.
If you are unsuccessful, you will leave the recruitment process. You will not join the reserve interview list and there will be no opportunity for a further interview with a different employer.
Feedback on your interview
You can obtain interview feedback free of charge by emailing email@example.com and attaching photographic ID. Feedback consists of interview question responses and any additional comments.
You will receive your feedback within approximately one month. However, we cannot start to process requests until all allocations have been completed.
