Task 1

reading Introduction

‘Assessment Centre’ is the term given to a day or more of organised activities undertaken by a group of candidates who are interested in working for a particular organisation.

These days are run in training centres, hotel or business conference centres of any other venue that an organisation considers to be suitable.

This task introduces you to assessment centres. It helps you to think about how you behave in groups, and how you can build on your natural strengths and weaknesses. Part of the task is a simulated group activity which will either be carried out in a group during your lectures, or individually at your computer.
