How Does Behavioural Interviewing Training Work?
Behavioural interviewing is a method used to interview candidates for a job. This method ensures the interviewer stays in control of the interview.
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 provide the course attendees with the skills of analysing the job requirements. Attendees will analyse the type of person required and design and practise the behavioural questioning techniques.
Phase 2 consists of practise interviews, with each course attendee carrying out two real play interviews. During the course, we will film each interview and play them back so that we can give in-depth feedback.
A good behavioural interviewing training course will involve attendees carrying out two ‘real play’ interviews each. 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.
Real versus Role Play
Role play just doesn’t work when giving course attendees some skill practise time. You can only practise behavioural interviewing by using real questions which will be 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 and so attendees get what effectively is a “live” experience using this skill whilst they are still on the course.
