The ASK team came into school this week to talk to year 11 about Assessment Centres.
Large company employers will often invite all candidates who they want to interview, to take part in some activities together, as well as having an individual interview.
They may be asked to present something to the group, do some role play or do an activity similar to what our students took part in.
All year 11's had to work in teams to build the tallest tower out of spaghetti and marshmallows.
They had to plan, communicate, listen, be creative, co-ordinate and show great team work.
One student from each group was assigned as the assessor; they observed skills and behaviours within the team.
Who was leading, encouraging, listening, helping? etc...
It was a lot of fun (and a little messy), but I hope they took from this, the importance of teamwork and gained more insight into what an assessment centre could be like.
