1 Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 1 of 20

2 INTRODUCTION This booklet has been designed to support you through the Signaller Recruitment Process. It outlines what the process will be and the sorts of assessments you will be doing. It will provide guidance that will help you prepare for the various stages of the recruitment process. The booklet is divided into 2 key parts: Part 1: An Overview of the Selection Process Part 2: The Assessments in Detail The recruitment arrangements are slightly different depending on whether you are an internal candidate who has signalling experience already and is applying for another signalling role or an external candidate looking for their first role as a signaller. We have indicated where the process or arrangements differ. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 2 of 20

4 Part 1: An Overview of the Selection Process The recruitment process consists of 3 key stages: Stage 1 The Application and Sift Stage Your application must be submitted on-line which you can do via the external Network Rail website if you are an external applicant or via the e-business suite if you are an internal applicant. On receipt of the application form you will be sent a situational judgement assessment (SJT). Details of what this entails can be found in Part 2 of this booklet. The application and the situational judgement assessment are prescreening tools which allow us to check that you are a good fit for the position of signaller and provide an initial filter on applicants. Stage 2 The Assessment Centre If are invited to attend an Assessment Centre at one of Network Rails Centres, there will be a number of assessments that you will be asked to undertake as detailed below. All the assessments evaluate your aptitude for signalling: For a New Entrant with No Signalling Experience The Signaller Scenario Assessment The assessment imitates the signalling activity, in a simplified form, for a particular area. You will be routing trains according to a timetable, managing the service when it runs late and managing requests to use level crossings and other communications. The assessment is in 2 parts. The first is an e- learning programme. You will be able to access this via a link to a website, the details of which will be sent to you in advance of the Assessment Centre. The e-learning provides you with information about some of the underpinning principles and rules covering how to route and regulate trains. You will need to have reviewed and understood this information in order to complete the Signalling Scenario Assessment at the Assessment Centre. Fault Finding Assessment This assessment measures your ability to find a fault in a sequence of operating buttons and provides useful information about your planning and decision making skills The Test of Every Day Attention Assessment This is a 6 part assessment designed to assess some specific aspects of your attention skills including how well you can divide your attention and how well you can sustain attention over a period of time. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 4 of 20

5 The Signaller Trainability in Rules and Procedures Assessment (STRP) This is a three parts assessment designed to look at your ability to be trained in rules and procedures. For Existing Employees with Signalling Experience You will be required to take the Fault Finding assessment and the Test of Everyday Attention, providing you have not sat these assessments within the last 3 years. If you have sat these assessments in the last 3 years and there are records of the results then your results will simply be carried forward. Stage 3: The Interview If you are successful at the Assessment Centre Stage you will be invited for interview. This will take place with the Line Manager and will involve a variety of questions. All candidates will be asked questions that are designed to assess your capabilities in the 8 core non technical skills areas (see Part 3 FAQs for details of the 8 core nontechnical skills). Specifically they will assess how you respond to particular scenarios and your preferences for different ways of working. If you are an existing employee with signalling experience you can also be expected to be asked 2 or 3 technical and location specific questions. At the end of the interview the manager also makes an assessment of your speaking and listening skills. This includes things like how well you have spoken and been able to phrase your answers to the questions; how you have organised the information you are providing and how you listen and show you are listening. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 5 of 20

6 Part 2: The Assessments in Detail In this part of the booklet more information is provided about what the assessment involves and how you can prepare for it. 2.1 The Situational Judgement Test (SJT) The SJT consists of 16 scenarios. They each present a situation with 3 possible responses. You are asked to indicate whether you believe the response to be the most effective; the next most effective; or the least effective response. There is no time limit to this test. However, try not to spend too long thinking about each one. The test should take you about 20 minutes. The following scenario shows an example of the sorts of statements you will see. Have a go at doing the example. Your manager is in a rush, quickly talking you through a new safety procedure. The procedure seems very different to the way that you carried out this procedure before and you are not sure you have understood it completely. Do you: a. Ask your manager more questions, even though he seems to be in a rush, to check that you have understood the procedure correctly. b. Make notes of your concerns and decide to talk to your colleagues about them when you meet them next. c. Wait until you need to carry out the procedure to check that you have understood it. Most effective Next most effective Least effective 2.2 The Signaller Scenario Assessment The Signaller Scenario Assessment is undertaken in 2 parts:- Firstly you will be given access to e-learning which you will complete before you attend the assessment centre. There is no limit as to the number of times this e-learning is undertaken. The key elements of the e-learning are:- Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 6 of 20

7 Area familiarisation where you will learn about the area of railway you will be controlling in terms of the number of stations there are, where the signals are located, where the trains go to and from and the location of the level crossing. Controlling train movements which is about how to use the signals to indicate to trains whether it is safe to move or not The signaller s timetable which takes you through how to read a signaller s timetable so you know what trains need to go where and when Setting routes where you will learn how to set routes according to the timetable Regulating trains which takes you through the basic rules of train regulation and how to ensure trains are kept to time Level crossings which provides you with an overview of how to safely operate a level crossing After each section are a series of questions that are designed to test your understanding of the material you have just been shown. The scores from these are not captured in anyway and you can do them as many times as you like until you feel confident in the information presented. At the assessment centre you will have 15 minutes to recap on the learning. You will then be provided with a Signallers timetable and you can launch into the main assessment which runs for 30 minutes. During this time you will:- Run trains normally Deal with requests to use the level crossing Manage other communications Regulate trains when the service starts running late. You will also be asked to complete an Incident Log throughout the assessment with details of requests to use the level crossing and late running trains or trains that have been regulated. 2.3 The Test of Everyday Attention (TEA) In this session we are interested in your concentration and attention on a range of everyday tasks. The test will be administered in a group setting and will take approximately 50 minutes. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 7 of 20

8 There are 6 sub tests: 1. The Map Search 2. Lift Counting 3. Lift Counting with Reversal 4. Telephone Directory Search 5. Telephone Search with Dual Task 6. Lottery Ticket Task We believe the test is an excellent predictor of effective signaller performance as candidates undertaking the assessment need to focus, do more than one thing at a time, sustain attention on a relatively repetitive task and respond to auditory and visual information. Some of the tests are designed to be particularly challenging, particularly when it is assessing your multi-task capacity, and so even as an experienced signaller you are not expected to get everything correct. The cut offs for this test are set specifically to identify whether people may have attentional deficits. The assessment administrators will set the scene for the assessment. You are to imaging you are on holiday, and you are asked to perform a number of tasks whilst on your trip. The Map Search The first task involves searching a map and crossing off a particular symbol on the map when located. There is a 2-minute time limit, so you will have to work quickly but accurately. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 8 of 20

9 Lift Counting The second task involves listening to an audio CD, representing the tones of a lift in your hotel as it passes different floors. You must count a tone of a particular frequency, while ignoring the distracting tone of a different pitch. You will be asked to write down how many tones you have heard representing how many floors you have travelled in the lift. Lift Counting with Reversal The third task is similar to the second task, but this time, there will be three (3) differing tones and you are asked to imagine that you are still in your hotel lift and it is travelling both upwards and downwards. You know whether the lift is going up or down by the sounds played on the CD. There are three types of sounds: 1. The middle-pitched tone which corresponds to a floor. This tone needs to be counted. 2. The high-pitched tone which corresponds to up and means that the lift has stopped and is now going to go up. 3. The low-pitched tone which corresponds to down and means that the lift has stopped and is now going to go down. You must count the floor tones but at the same time listen carefully so you know which direction the lift is travelling in. You will be asked to write down what floor the lift stops at. Telephone Directory Search The fourth task is a search of a telephone directory page for certain symbols next to a particular service. Beside each name/service entry, two symbols (star, square, circle or cross) indicate certain ratings for these services, and the ones which suit your requirements best are always pairs of identical symbols, i.e. two stars, two circles, two crosses or two squares. When you notice two of any of the symbols together in one line, you must cross off the symbols. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 9 of 20

10 Telephone Directory Search with Dual Task The fifth task is another search of the telephone directory but this time is performed in combination with a second task counting strings of tones presented on an audio CD. You must put equal effort into each of the two simultaneous tasks. Lottery Ticket Task The final task sets the scene that you have bought lottery tickets and you are listening to an announcement of winning tickets. You need to listen to a series of letters and numbers that always begin with two letters and end with three numbers. For example, a voice will say: E-F You must to listen for tickets ending in 5-5. When you hear a number ending in 5-5, you must write down the first two letters of that ticket on the sheet provided. For example, G- H-3-5-5, you would write GH. 2.4 The Fault Finding Assessment This assessment measures your ability to find a fault in a sequence of operating buttons and provides useful information about your planning and decision making skills In the practice test the diagrams with which you work look slightly different to the diagrams in the real test but the principle and task is the same. Each question in the practice test shows a diagram of four numbered shutters in a box on the left hand side of the page. These shutters can be opened or closed by lettered buttons. Each button will have a specific effect on the shutters. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 10 of 20

11 The effect that each button has on the shutters is explained in the box below and to the right there is an example of the diagram. For each question you will need to look at the four shutters in the box on the left hand side of the page and then assess how they should change after a series of buttons have been pressed. The buttons are listed to the right on the box. There is another box on the right hand side of the page which shows the end result of pressing this series of buttons. The arrows show the order in which the buttons have been pressed, working from left to right. However, in each question one and only one of the buttons is not working. Therefore one button has no effect on the shutters. Work through the sequence of buttons, comparing the diagram on the left (which is the set of shutters before any buttons have been pressed) with the one on the right (which shows the shutters after the sequence of buttons have been pressed), in order to work out which buttons in the sequence are working and which one is not. Remember that the buttons are pressed in sequence so the first button pressed may be cancelled out by one of the following buttons. Have a look at the examples in the next column. Button Function when working A B Opens shutters 1 and 3 Opens shutters 2 and 4 Key C Closes shutter D E Closes shutter 2 Closes shutter F Closes shutter 4 = shutter open = shutter closed Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 11 of 20

12 Example A Example A shows the effect of each button when all of the buttons are working. In other words, example A shows a situation in which there are no faults. The key below shows which shutters are open and which are closed. Initial position Button sequence Final position A F 3 4 In this sequence button A opens shutters 1 and 3, then button F closes shutter 4 Example B Example B shows the type of questions you will be asked in the test. Here, one of the buttons in the sequence is not working therefore it has no effect on the shutters. Initial position Button sequence Final position 1 2 C B D In this example, using the functions listed, button C closes shutter 1 and shutter 1 is closed, so it is working. Button B opens shutters 2 and 4 and they are open so it is working. Button D should closed shutter 2. it is not closed, so it can be seen therefore that button D is not working. Thus D is the correct answer because it is the button on the sequence which is not working. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 12 of 20

13 2.5 Signaller Trainability for Rules and Procedures Test This test is divided into three parts, each designed to look at your ability to be trained in rules and procedures. The three parts are examined separately below. (Also know as the STRP) STRP Part 1 Block Instruments This part of the trainability test assesses your aptitude to learn and recall job related information and to learn new procedures and regulations. At the assessment centre you will listen to some instructions being read aloud on an audio tape. Whilst they are being read aloud you will also be given a printed copy of the instructions. You will then have the chance to study and learn the information. You can make notes on scrap paper provided, although both these and the printed copy of the instructions will be collected before you are asked to answer some questions. After studying the passage you will be asked to answer 17 multiple choice questions based on the information contained within it. For each question you will have four possible answers and you must select the one which is correct. You will have 8 minutes to answer the questions. Below are practice examples for the signallers block instruments. It is similar to the test but the passage is different to the one you will be given at the assessment centre. Study the passage duties of signallers. You should give yourself about 3 minutes to study this passage. You can make rough notes to help you but you should not look at them or the passage itself once you begin to answer the questions, as you will not be allowed to do so on the day of the test. When you have studies the passage and made any rough notes, turn over the page and answer the 2 questions. Not your answers in the appropriate box for each question in the answer section. Practice Test Instructions Study the passage (below) and make notes on rough paper if you like. Once you have studies it for 3 minutes, put aside any rough notes you might have made and cover the test passage. The practice test then allows you 3 minutes to answer the 2 questions. Remember: once you have started the test it is important that you do not look at the passage again until you have attempted both questions. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 13 of 20

14 Duties of Signallers Passing on Responsibility for Area of Control Before closing the signal box the signaller must ensure that the train register book contains all the necessary entries. All entries must be made legibly in pen and any incorrect entries marked through clearly with a singe line and corrections made. As well as information relating to the position and state of the signal box equipment, clear details of any unusual incidents must be made. Such entries must be accompanied by the relevant time of the incident and the signaller s signature. Once the signaller is satisfied that the relief signaller is in a fit and proper state to take duty, the signaller must advise them of any equipment defects or trains in the section of railway track. Finally, the signaller must sign off duty in the train register book immediately below the last entry in the register by entering their signature and the works off duty at X hours. On arrival, the relief signaller must sign on duty in the train register book with their signature and the words on duty at X hours. Before opening the signal box the position of the equipment must be checked against the entries made in the train register and additional information received from the signaller. The signal box should be opened in accordance with block regulation 13 because adjoining signal boxes may already be open. The signal box equipment should also be tested and defects reported as per local procedures. Example Questions 1. What additional information must the signaller relay to the relief signaller before passing over responsibility for the signal box? a) Any equipment defects b) Any trains stopped at the station c) What time they go off duty d) Any trains out of section 2. Why should the signal box be opened in accordance with block regulation 13? a) To ensure all trains are moving b) Because adjoining signal boxes may be closed c) To ensure all blocks are working properly d) Because adjoining signal boxes may be open Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 14 of 20

15 Your answers Please colour in the right answer for each question. 1. a b c d 1. a b c d Tips for the practice assessment Some people find it easier to learn by writing down key points. If you didn t do it the first time round, try the assessment again, but this time make notes. Don t forget to study your notes within the 3 minutes Remember that you should not look at your notes or the passage once you begin answering the questions. Practice makes perfect you could practice this exercise with a friend. Select a passage that you are unfamiliar with. Give yourself a few minutes to study it and then give it to the other person. Get them to ask you a number of questions based on the information contained in the passage. Hints and tips for the assessment centre On the day of the assessment: Remember, you might find it easier to learn by writing down the key points as rough notes for yourself. Be sure to study your notes and/or the printed copy of the instructions during the first part of the test, as both will be collected before you are asked to answer the questions. STRP Part 2 Rules Application Test This part of the trainability assessment measures your aptitude to apply rules to a series of diagrams. The example is very similar to the one you will do as part of the assessment centre. For the Rules Application test on the assessment day you will be asked 20 questions. Each question has three of four diagrams. Each diagram will feature one or more trains on a railway track. This track is divided into section, with a signal between each section. The Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 15 of 20

16 trains move from left to right, passing through signals onto the next section of the track. These instructions will explain what the test is about, what you will be asked to do, and how to work out the answers to the questions. There are examples for you to follow and then some practice questions for you to try out before you star the test itself. Note: This test measures your ability to learn new rules and procedures. For existing signallers some of the rules may be contradictory to current signalling principles. Therefore please disregard normal rules and regulations you would use in your normal day to day work when completing this exercise. Here is an example of the type of diagram you will see in a question: In each diagram there will be one signal that has a question mark above it. This is the signal that you will be asked to look at, to judge whether it should be green (so that the train can pass through the signal) or red (so that the train will stay where it is). To do this you will look at some rules about the track which will be written down for you late in the instructions. These rules are concerned with the safety aspect of controlling the movement of trains. By using the key below to work out what each figure represents, you can see that there is a train waiting on the left hand side of the track. The diagram below shows a train with 5 windows so therefore is has 5 carriages. The signal to its immediate right is red, which means that the train cannot move onto the next section of track. The section of track between the two signals is the length of 4 carriages, and the level crossing is down. This signal on the far right hand side of the diagram is green, which means that a train can pass through the signal onto the next section of track. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 16 of 20

17 KEY TO DIAGRAM When you have worked this out, look at the signal with the question mark over it, and use the rules below to assess whether it would be safe to change the signal to green, which would let the train move onto the next section of track. Now that you have seen the type of diagram that will feature in the test, you need to know what the rules are that determine whether the train is allowed through the signal onto the next section of track. The rules are as follows: The signal must be green before the train is allowed to pass through it. If the level crossing is open cars can drive across the track, therefore the train cannot be allowed to go through the signal onto this piece of track. This means that the signal should stay at red so that the train cannot move through the signal. There can only be one train sitting between two signals. If there is a train already sitting between two signals, and the signal to the right of it is red, then the signal to the left of it must also be red to prevent any other trains moving onto the same piece of track. However, if the signal to the right is green, this means that the train will be moving off, so another train could move onto the Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 17 of 20

18 track; therefore the signal to the left can be green as it will be safe for another train to move onto the track. In the first example the signal to the right of the middle section is red. This means that the train cannot move onto the next section of track. Therefore the signal with the question mark shows it should stay red so the 2 trains are not in the same section of track. In the second example the signal to the right of the middle section is green. This means that the train can move onto the next section of track. Therefore the signal with the question mark over it should change to green so that the train on the left can move onto the middle section whilst the train on the middle section moves onto the section of track on the far right of the diagram. If the next signal along from the one with the question mark is red, you need to check that the track between the two signals is long enough to hold the train. To do this you will need to look at the key and compare the length of track between the two signals with the length of the train that is waiting to come through. If the train is longer than the track you will need to make sure that the signal controlling the train on the left hand side is red so that the train will not go through onto track that is too short. If, however, the right hand signal is green, it is safe for the left hand train to go through it as the train will not have to stop between the two signals. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 18 of 20

19 STRP Part 3: Speed and Time test This part of the test measures your ability to work out train times and distances, based on the speed of different types of trains. The train types and speeds are shown below. Also shown is a diagram of a map which shows where the trains can go to. Train type: Outer suburban Rural Freight Light loco working Speed: 150 miles per hour 110 mph 85 mph 70 mph There are four different types of train, each of which travels at a different speed, the lowest speed being 70 miles per hour and the highest being 150 miles per hour. A 150 miles 70 miles D B 110 miles 85 miles C Below are two examples of the types of questions you might be asked. Use your table and map to follow each question and the corresponding answer. Example question 1 How long would it take an outer suburban train to travel from A to D? Answer One hour. This is because the distance between A and D is 150 miles and the outer suburban train travels 150 miles per hour, therefore it would take one hour for the train to travel between A and D. Signaller Recruitment Information Booklet Dec 2013 Page 19 of 20

20 Example question 2 If a rural train left D at 10:00, what time would it arrive at C? Answer 11:00. This is because a rural train travels at 110 miles per hour and the distance between D and C is 110 miles, therefore the journey would take one hour. One hour from 10:00 is 11:00, so 11:00 is the answer. For the Speed and Time test on the assessment day you will be asked 20 questions in 15 minutes.
