The Garda Stage 3 Interview consists of a competency based interview. This is a highly structured interview where candidates are informed in advance of a number of key competencies. The competencies which are predefined by the interview board are key skills deemed necessary to serve effectively as a member of An Garda Síochána. Examples of the competencies could include ‘Problem Solving’, ‘Resilience’, ‘Motivation for the Role’ etc. During the interview candidates are asked to give examples of instances when they displayed each of the competencies effectively.
Most people pick examples from their previous work experience, voluntary experience, educational experience or a hobby that they enjoy. All candidates are assessed on the same competencies to ensure that there is fairness in the selection process. Obviously, how well candidates prepare in advance will dictate how well they will perform in the interview.
"I am currently waiting for the next intake class after passing all stages with an OOM in the 50s. I don't know how I would have fared without the help of Career Services. They gave a clear direction and strategy for doing well in the various stages. The course instructors were brilliant and helped with feedback and advice long after the courses were over. The work put in on your own time is massively important but with the direction of Career Services, you know what to aim at and how to hit it every time. I couldn't recommend the course and people involved more highly"
“I booked a course for Stage 1 in the Carlton this year, used your course online for Stage 2 and attended Stage 3 in Portlaoise. I want to thank you for your course as it immensely helped me and I subsequently passed my interview for the Garda Trainee 2019 on the 25th of November! I am 568 OOM. I would have no hesitation in recommending Careers Services should I know anyone applying”
"I did a Garda stage 1, 2 and 3 preparation course last year with ye, I started my training last week in Templemore and can honestly say I wouldn't be there if not for the preparation courses, the best money I ever spent thanks again"
"Just emailing in relation to the results I received yesterday from Stage 3 , I passed with an OOM of 150 , I had completed all 3 courses with ye this year and they were brilliant in guiding me through the process. A particular thanks to Ed and Patrick. I hope to be in the first batch into Templemore"
“I’m delighted to say all your help has been brilliant for my application this year. I passed each stage with ease and that was with the help and guidance you provided. I did stage 2 and 3 with you guys and it was the best money I’ve spent. I’m currently waiting to hear when I get to start in Templemore and I couldn’t be more excited and thankful for your help in getting me to here”
