What's Covered

Our psychologists have developed this course based on the competency framework outlined by the British Psychological Society’s (BPS). It therefore covers all elements of their assessment centre standard, including:

  • Understanding what makes an effective assessment centre.
  • The role of an assessor and other roles within an assessment centre.
  • Effective evaluation of assessment centre exercises.
  • How to observe, record, classify, evaluate, and give feedback effectively.
  • How to be competent to evaluate performance against pre-determined job-related behaviours.
  • Equality and diversity.

Aligned to the ORCEF Training Model:

  • Observe – observe the candidate
  • Record – make notes on what is said and done, and other behaviours e.g. non-verbal behaviours.
  • Classify – classify their behaviours into the agreed assessment criteria e.g. if an assessment criteria is Team Working what behaviours did you note that provides evidence of effective team working?
  • Evaluate – we then give each assessment criteria a rating. So for Team Working we give them a score e.g. from 0 – 5.
  • Feedback – We provide quality feedback. This can be to the Recruiting Manager and/ or to the candidate.
