Virtual Assessment Centre Simulations

Each virtual simulation session is dedicated to focusing on one particular Assessment Centre exercise. These sessions are highly interactive and will be delivered online by one of our EPSO experts. 

EPSO Graduate Administrator (AD5) candidates, will also be pleased to know, that they can attend all four simulation sessions at a discounted rate via our SPECIAL BUNDLE OFFER.

Join a Virtual Group Exercise Simulation session:

It's difficult to practice for this exercise by yourself because this practical task needs a group of participants. This session brings a number of candidates together virtually and offers the opportunity to participate in a full Group Exercise simulation while benefiting from the advice/feedback given by our EPSO expert, who knows exactly what EPSO assessors will be looking for.

Join a Virtual Competency-Based Interview Simulation session:

Given the practical nature of this exercise, it is harder to improve or correct mistakes without feedback from someone that knows specifically what EPSO assessors will be looking for on exam day. This session offers a great opportunity to meet virtually with our EPSO expert, be tested on a number of 'likely' interview questions and learn collectively as a group from the feedback given. 

Join a Virtual Oral Presentation Simulation session:

There are many factors that can significantly affect your performance in the Oral Presentation that you may not even consider. This session offers the opportunity to participate in an Oral Presentation simulation and correct any mistakes before the real thing, through the suggestions and feedback given by your trainer. 

Join a Virtual Motivational Interview Simulation session:

This is a very unique type of interview, hence why candidates often have difficulty knowing exactly how to prepare effectively for it. This session offers a great opportunity to meet virtually with our EPSO expert, be tested on a number of 'likely' questions and learn collectively as a group from the feedback given.

Special Assessment Centre Simulations for AD5 Graduate Administrators

EPSO Graduate Administrators - these sessions have been specifically designed for you with your Assessment Centre needs in mind. 

Many candidates perform well below their potential at the Assessment Centre as they are in an unfamiliar environment where words, actions, and body language matter more than you would initially assume. 

The tests undertaken at an EPSO Assessment Centre are highly practical in nature, this also means it is harder to improve or correct mistakes without feedback from people that know exactly what EPSO assessors will be looking for. 

Test run your performance before the real thing via an Assessment Centre simulation session where the focus is placed heavily on the practical side of the EPSO exams rather than the theory. 

The Intensive Assessment Centre Simulation for EPSO AD5 Generalists training session includes:

  • Insights into the Motivational Interview
  • Competency-Based Interview simulation
  • Oral Presentation simulation
  • Group Exercise simulation

NEXT TRAINING SESSIONS: 27 AUGUST, 1 SEPTEMBER, 4 SEPTEMBER, 11 SEPTEMBER (1 SPOT LEFT) AND 25 SEPTEMBER

Do TWO Practice Group Exercises and Get Feedback

It is difficult to practice for the Group Exercise exam virtually or by yourself because this practical task involves a group of participants.

While there are strategies and best practices that you should collect to mentally prepare in advance, it does not compare with the experience gained from doing a few realistic simulations and learning from these practical interactions.

The EPSO AC Group Exercise Master Class brings together candidates to practice this exercise under exam conditions similar to what you'll experience at the actual EPSO Assessment Centre.

This session offers the opportunity to participate in TWO Group Exercise simulations and benefit from the advice/feedback given by our EPSO expert, who knows exactly what EPSO assessors will be looking for.
