HOW TO PREPARE
Before any assessment event ensure that you are clear on what to expect from the day. Read your invitation email carefully so that you know where you need to be and what time you are expected to arrive. Prepare all the administration that you are required to bring with you on the day, including copies as necessary. It is important that you consider the activities that you will be required to complete during your assessment event and think through how to best prepare. For the non-technical elements seek feedback from those that you interact with about how effective you are within a team setting. Try to anticipate what it is you bring to a group environment and what areas you could look to develop. Prepare for your maths test by practicing and improving your speed and accuracy of mental calculations. This can easily be achieved by using a revision guide and using a stop watch to apply time pressure.Whilst the aptitude test looks to grade your natural aptitude, many of the tests will require use of a joystick. Some applicants find it useful to practice using a joystick before they come to their assessment event and maybe use a flight simulator game. Others have been known to undertake trial flights to help them understand the demands on your capacity when flying.Finally, people find is useful to prepare for their interview by considering different experiences or situations they have been in, which demonstrates their skills across the areas outlined in the interview section of this booklet. Please do not fall in to the trap of preparing “model” responses as this can often backfire because applicants may not answer the questions being asked. Make sure that you listen to the questions and respond with recent and relevant examples.It is fair to say that CTC’s selection process will challenge you but our experienced assessment team will make you feel at ease and create an environment that allows you to relax and be yourself. It is important that we get to see the real you on these events and our team are here to support you through the process and facilitate the day.
