What we do

We’ve deconstructed the Civil Service competences and Fast Stream assessments, broke them down and developed a mechanical method to show you what you need to do to operate well to successfully demonstrate the detail in these competences.  We will both instruct you and give you similar mock exercises.  This will help you understand what you need to do and what the assessors are looking for (we’ll show you the same level of detail they use to mark you) in each of the assessments you’ll face in each stage, especially FSAC.

We are not showing you ways to cheat the systme, but give you a better understanding and coahcing to become a good operator, as a Fast Streamer and supply the Civil Service with better candidates.


Niche Services

We have a mock Oral Leadership Briefing that isn’t in the public domain (and we consider other coaching services and forums don’t have something like it either). We also show you which competences are being tested in the brief which the FSAC Brief doesn’t tell you.

For the E-tray Assessment stage, we take you through how to approach the written exercise, but then discuss the two parts of the consequent exercise afterwards that count towards your FSAC score. 

One is coaching how to approach the written exercise but the other is using a niche tool we have to aid and promote creative thinking in a mechanical way – whether you’re naturally creative or not, we can give you a tool to produce innovative answers that the FSAC assessors are looking for.  We also use this niche tool to promote creative thinking for the second part of the Policy Written Exercise at FSAC.

Our preparation for the e-tray stage and FSAC is comprehensive, so you know exactly what to expect on the day, you’ll have experienced the exercises and you’ll be confident going in.


What we Charge 

In line with normal academic tutoring, yet cheap for a corporate service, we feel we offer good value-for-money at £50 per hour. This then becomes cheaper the more hours you book.

For E-tray we comfortably cover the exercises in an hour, so £50.  This can include a brief talk on the verbal reasoning and numerical analysis exercises too.

But these latter two exercises are just about how much you put in, and the free information on this site should comfortably give you all you need to know.

At the Interview stage, we also cover this in an hour, going over your examples with you and this can also be done in an hour also.  So £50.

Or for £75, we can go over the theory in 30 minutes and then have a separate, mock interview session for a real experience of how you'll be interviewed.

For the FSAC, we can either discuss a tailored package to suit your needs, and matching that with a suitable cost. Mostly though, people want that comprehensive approach where we cover all aspects of FSAC

We offer this comprehensive package at a flat rate of £250.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

The coaching covers everything from academic approaches, to handling nerves, to psychological tips on being personally successful in all walks of life. We’re friendly, capable and professional. We obviously can’t promise you’ll pass FSAC, as some factors are out of our control; it mostly involves how hard you’re willing to work and prepare – we can’t make you learn everything we give you to learn.

We have a high pass rate after the coaching, and most people who put the effort in and actively listen, do pass. In addition, 100% of people using the service found it extremely helpful, adding significant value to their capability and a compelling experience.

Please get in touch if you would like our help, or require more information; we’re happy to discuss our own careers, background and credence in more detail with yourselves or parents over the phone.
