Evidence against the Selection Criteria

Provide a concise summary of your evidence of how you organise your work, make sound decisions, achieve outcomes, communicate and work effectively with other people. The summary addressing each criterion must be no longer than 350 words in length.

Rather than providing long-winded arguments in this area, it is better to highlight some of the examples and achievements in your working life so far that provide the best evidence that you have the capabilities sought. If the example is already mentioned in your Work History, simple refer to it rather than repeat it.

Some guidance as to what the selection committee are looking for is included in the Selection Criteria and also in the Pathways for Bands 2 – 5 document.

For Criterion 3 (Technical Knowledge and Skills), you need to provide evidence of both the qualifications, knowledge and training you have acquired, as well as an effective summary of how you have displayed the required technical knowledge or skills in practical achievements. Experience in similar roles is very important in this criterion and should be highlighted. The summary addressing this criterion must be no longer than 350 words in length.

Again, some guidance as to what the selection committee are looking for is included in the Selection Criteria and also in the Pathways for Bands 2 – 5 document.
