Assessment Process for the SCC - Candidate Briefing Sessions

These sessions are for police officers and police staff attending the next Assessment Process for the Strategic Command Course (SCC), which includes the Senior Police National Assessment Centre (Senior PNAC) and the Senior Police Staff Assessment Process.  

The sessions give you the opportunity to understand more about what to expect when you attend the assessment process. You will be taken through an overview of how the assessment centre works, information about what to expect while you are there, and have your questions answered with a view to de-mystifying the process.  The sessions also provide some suggested personal development activities to support you as you work towards this step in your career. 

When can I attend a briefing session?
Dates for the next sessions to be confirmed.

Once you have confirmation that you will be taking part in the Assessment Process, please let us know which of these sessions is best for you, by emailing

What if I can't attend on these dates?
