Selection

To ensure fairness and that decisions are made without bias, all applications will be anonymised. Two selectors from each Supporter Group (8 in total) will assess each application against the following scores.

1Not demonstratedNo Positive evidence and/or substantial negative evidence demonstrated
2Minimal DemonstrationLimited positive and/or mainly negative evidence demonstrated
3Moderate DemonstrationModerate positive evidence but some negative evidence demonstrated

5Good DemonstrationSubstantial Positive evidence of the criteria

The candidates with the highest cumulative scores will then be un-anonymised. The selectors will then jointly decide on the final 8 (maximum) nominees. These will then be forwarded to CFC as our nominees. CFC will then decide if any of the nominees are unsuitable and then will invite STH and members to vote for the final candidate using the alternative vote system.
