Assessor Skills Training

Assessor Skills Training ~ If you want your Assessment Centres to be effective, you need to work from the top down – you need qualified Assessors and Observers who can objectively measure the competence of your candidates objectively.

This training is aligned with the New British Psychological Society (BPS) Assessment Centre Standard

Whether your Assessment Centre is for high volume recruitment or for higher-level strategic and technical roles, for you to utilise the full potential and value of Assessment Centres (ACs), you need to ensure that your Assessors and Observers are fully equipped with the knowledge and skills required for their role – and this course does just that!

Aligned with the new British Psychological Society’s (BPS) AC Standards, this Assessor Skills Training has been developed by Chartered Business Psychologists to improve the standard of Assessors and Observers skills across all industries.

Our very own Max Choi was a Co-convener of the BPS AC Standards Working Group who wrote the BPS Assessment Centre Standard.
Max is an expert in aligning best practices to the new Standard.

The Standard covers both assessment and development centres and takes an evidence based approach based on the latest research findings on common areas of poor practice.
