Assessment and Development Centres

Training for Assessors


Alongside our Assessment and Development Centre package, we are pleased to offer a unique training course, designed to assist the assessor in understanding the programme. This course offers the opportunity to understand the concept of Assessment and Development Centres, before addressing the principles and benefits of their use. More crucially, this training course analyses the job analysis and role competencies specific to the vacancy and covers the reasoning behind the use of each test, using a competency matrix.


The delegates will understand the tests used, materials provided and the timetable produced. In addition, they will have the opportunity to ‘walk in the candidates’ shoes’ and practice a range of the tests. Finally, the delegate shall be advised how to make the most use of the ‘wash-up’ session and how to best to select the most suitable candidate for the role.
