Description

There's a lot of confusion out there about the different types of EPSO competitions.

We often get asked the question - "what is the difference between this and that competition...and which one am I eligible to apply for?"

So let's take a look at the different types of competitions that regularly come up and explore what differentiates each one.

Topics Covered

As a former EU Official and best-selling author of The Ultimate EU Test Book, András Baneth will debunk the mystery of each competition type by delving into the following questions:

  • What is a 'CAST' competition?
  • What is a 'Generalist' competition?
  • What is a 'Specialist' competition?
  • What is an 'Internal' competition?
  • What makes each of these competitions unique?

After watching this online workshop, we hope it will help you to discover which type(s) of competition is right for you, so you can fully take advantage of new EU career opportunities as they come up.

Description

Specific competencies and EU values play an extremely important role in each and every EPSO competition's selection process.

The tests/exercises that you will need to complete will be built around measuring these key competencies - especially once you get to the Assessment Centre.

Possessing a clear understanding of what assessors will be looking for when evaluating your strengths in each competency area, will greatly help you to excel and attain high scores. While EU values form the foundation of how situations and outcomes are judged within this context.

Topics Covered

As a former EU Official and best-selling author of The Ultimate EU Test Book, András Baneth will share with you his first-hand experiences while exploring the following questions:

  • What are the 8 key ESPO competencies?
  • What does each competency mean within this context?
  • How is your strength per competency measured?
  • What are the key EU values?
  • How can I improve in each competency area?

The aim of this online workshop is to build a deeper understanding of each EPSO competency that assessors will be judging you on and to highlight the key EU values, so you can better prepare and excel in the exercises you will be asked to complete as part of your competition.

Mastering the EU Commission's Internal Competition Oral Test | IN-PERSON Classroom Training | 26 May 2023

Marina from italy

"I signed up for this course to get an overall understanding of what is expected in the exam and to do some practical training. The simulation fully met my expectations. The organisation of the training offered is very educational. Malene transmitted the information in a very clear and structured way, and gave us precious tools to carry out the interview successfully.  Her kindness was reassuring during the practical exercises! I recommend this as the best way to train and practice mock exercises with professional feedback."

Field-Related Interview Simulation | 5 May 2023

Hélène from France

"The presentation was very well structured and gave the attendees enough space for questions. Malene was very clear and provided extended explanations for any question or doubt. EU Training is an excellent tool to prepare for EPSO competitions (and internal competitions)."

How many times can I use a question? And how many times can I revise a test?

Our questions have no expiration date, your question balance has no expiration date. You can compose new tests as long as you have new questions on your account, and you can revise previous tests without any time limitation.

We created a system that helps your EU exam preparation in the best possible way:

  • After you buy an exam preparation package, you can use these questions to create new tests in any composition and language you wish.
  • Once you launch a new test, the number of questions that you put in there will be deducted from your account and you can use each question once, similarly to a test book where you mark your answer options.
  • However, as a special gift to our customers, we created a system where you can re-take any of your previously composed tests as many times as you like (you can do this by finding the test you wish to re-take via the Practice Activity block of your Dashboard).
  • You can monitor your progress via the Statistics block as well.
  • After submitting or re-taking a test, you can revise all your previous tests in Review mode which includes an option to turn off the 'Explanation' feature to further improve the revision experience.
  • Moreover, revision is not limited in any way. You may revise previous tests and questions for an unlimited period and for an unlimited number of times.

How do I buy test questions in the language I want to practice in?

When buying question packages, you are buying a quota of questions from our database and not specific questions. This means that in the Start New Test block you can choose which language(s) you want to do your practice tests in. You do not pick this up at the time of purchase.

TIP: make sure you click on the little (i) in the table on the Products tab to see how many questions we have in a particular language per test so you don’t over-purchase.
