Assessment centres

Assessment centres

The main purpose of assessment centres is to create an environment in which you, along with other candidates, demonstrate key workplace skills. These include communication, teamwork, problem-solving, task management and leadership and they are assessed through activities like group work, presentations, case studies and e-tray exercises. 

Here are useful links to help you understand what assessment centres involve and how best to approach the different activities.
