Behavioural Interviewing Training

How Does Behavioural Interviewing Training Work?

Behavioural interviewing is a method used to interview job candidates which ensures the control of the interview is always with the interviewer.

You will ask candidates specific questions about things they have done in the past and what their behaviour was.

This will be a reasonable predictor of their behaviour in the future, given a similar situation.

The Course Structure

A good Behavioural Interviewing Training course will consist of two parts:

Phase 1 of the programme will providing the course attendees with the skills of analysing the requirements of the job, analysing what type of person is required and designing and practicing the behavioural questioning techniques.

Phase 2 consists of practise interviews, with each course attendee carrying out two real play interviews. Each interview will be filmed and then played back so that in-depth feedback can be given.

A good behavioural interviewing training course will involve attendees carrying out two ‘real play’ interviews each as our experience has shown that a lot of learning occurs during the first video feedback session. That means a large jump in performance is obtained if individuals have another go.behavioural interviewing training1

Real versus Role Play

Role play just doesn’t work when giving course attendees some skill practise time. Behavioural interviewing can only be practised using real questions which are being answered by real people talking about actual experiences.

So we use a practise method which we call “real play”. Nothing is role played by anyone so attendees get what effectively is “live” experience using this skill whilst they are still on the course.
