Background: Selection for entry into UK medical specialty training is a high-stakes, high-volume process. For selection into General Practice, a large number of assessors and simulators are involved in the delivery of the selection centre, which represents the final stage of selection.\ud \ud Aim: In order to standardize and quality-assure assessor and simulator involvement in the process, we developed two competency models outlining the knowledge, skills and attributes associated with each role using a previously validated job analysis methodology.\ud \ud Results: The final qualitative analysis resulted in two competency models, each encompassing eight competency domains. In general, results from a validation questionnaire demonstrated positive feedback from various regional recruitment leads in the UK (nā€‰=ā€‰14).\ud \ud Conclusion: Both models are currently being used in practice for quality assurance and training purposes. We conclude that the competency models can be used in three ways: (1) recruiting assessors/simulators; (2) in measuring performance of assessors/simulators and highlighting areas for potential development; and (3) they can be used for training assessors/simulators.
