Selection Criteria - what to do?
Selection Criteria can be skills, experience, values or knowledge which you must be able to demonstrate that you possess.

- Take a new page and write down each of the selection criteria.
- Under each criteria state that you meet the criteria, giving examples of how and when you have demonstrated the skill, knowledge, vlaue or gained the experience.
- You can use the STAR model:
Situation- describe the circumstance in which you used the skills or qualities or gained the experience.
Task - what was your role?
Actions - what did you do and how did you do it?
Result - what did you achieve?
