Should competency-based assessment centres be consigned to history? | Webinar

This will be a fast-paced webinar that promises to provide a thought-provoking look at the future of competency-based assessment centres.

The content will include a review of latest research into competencies, and the challenges this presents for conventional assessment centre methodology. We will also discuss recent innovations in assessment centre methodology (e.g. task-based assessment centres) and implications for our future practice.

“Should competency-based Assessment Centres be consigned to history?”

This Webinar is a very thought provoking subject to be starting with and we look forward to a lively discussion. Please register now to be part of this lively, fast-paced event. Our ceiling is 100 so if we exceed that we will send round a recording to those who can’t attend in person.
