RSG Future Leadership Mentor Scheme
Enrolment for our 2021 Future Leadership Mentor Scheme intake is now open for the Autumn Exam Period.
If you are a serving officer and would like to apply to take part in the scheme please visit: https://www.rsr.ltd/flms-scheme/
Red Snapper Group (RSG) is a leading provider of staffing, training, media and business process outsourcing to law enforcement organisations throughout the UK.
In September 2020, RSG launched its first intake of the Future Leadership Mentor Scheme, aimed at helping officers from underrepresented backgrounds pass their National Investigators’ and Sergeants’ Exams in March 2021.
This initial pilot scheme proved a huge success, helping the vast majority of candidates attain high pass marks in both their Sergeants and NIE.
Forty-five serving officers were enrolled into the scheme and received examination support services via Red Snapper’s e-learning service policerevision.com, alongside one-to-one mentoring support from former mid-rank and senior officers; all of whom came from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds within the police force themselves.
The pass rate amongst our enrolled delegates in the March Exams was 74.1%.
This is compared to the March 2021 national average of 59.5% for the Sergeants’ exams and 66.8% for the NIE.
We are now looking to provide revision materials and mentoring for a second intake of officers who are seeking support in both the September and November NIE exams in 2021, as well as the Inspectors’ Exam taking place in October 2021.
Our delegates also gave us some impressive feedback about how the one-to-one mentoring as part of scheme helped them individually:
“Johnny (my mentor) surpassed my expectations of what the mentor’s role is. I honestly believe that without the mentoring I probably would not have passed the exam. Johnny gave me clear & effective guidance which kept me on track throughout me studying.”
“I would just like to thank Ricky for all of his help. I feel like he played a big part in me achieving the score that I did. He really helped with my revision and exam techniques and gave lots of advice and guidance regarding being organised and coming up with a plan and sticking with it. It was also really useful to gain the insight into the actual promotion process following the exam and to chat about things that I needed to change going forward in order to be successful.”
“I felt that this mentoring process really helped me as there were times where I hit a brick wall and my mentor really pushed me to continue with my revision and made me continue with my revision which is why I scored so high.”
“Mr Pervaiz was very caring, helpful and approachable. He made sure I fully understood the syllabus, he regularly checked up on me and he answered any questions without any problem. I personally think this was the turning point for me being successfully in the exam.”

How does the scheme work?
The scheme will enable serving police officers to receive examination support services and one-to-one mentoring support from former mid-rank and senior officers; all of whom are from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds within policing.
The service is delivered on a remote basis and is completely free for every officer who takes part.
Each delegate will receive 5 hours of one-to-one coaching and access to market leading examination support service Police Revision, which offers hours of video presentations, multiple-choice exam-style questions, presentations on exam technique and much more.
All of our mentors have demonstrated they possess the contemporary technical knowledge and the right attributes to provide one-to-one guidance and support for officers preparing for their examinations.
The mentoring programme will act as an addition to the technical knowledge provided by Police Revision, providing delegates with both insight and more importantly, personal development and leadership coaching.
You can also read a recent article published about one our mentors, and the scheme itself, on Police Oracle.
