Training for Assessor Skills
Assessor Skills training will skill your assessors to design and run assessment centres specifically tailored around a particular job specification.
Research suggests that using an assessment centre gives a 68% chance of selecting the right person for the job. It also indicates that if assessors go through assessor skills training to understand the skills of assessing, this percentage will be much higher.
You need to be able to break the job specification down into the required skills sets and then create effective activities to enable you to observe candidate behaviours in an appropriate scenario.
Your training needs to include an understanding of key individual and group psychology models to enable you to establish base measures for your observations.
A Typical Assessor Skills Course
This course can be adapted to both assessment for development centres as well as for recruitment assessment centres.
This is a pragmatic learning workshop, tailored to the needs of your organisation.
Who should attend?
Team Leaders, Supervisors, Managers, HRD professionals and anyone who assesses staff for recruitment or development.
Typically, you will learn how to:
- Identify specific behaviours and objective measurement processes
- Apply techniques of assessing using a flexible but objective approach
- Build self-confidence through “real” plays
- Assess and manage the group dynamics of the assessor group
- Facilitate the assessor group to enable objectivity
- Identify areas of personal strength and areas for further development
Because this is a course built around the learning needs of the organisation and the individuals who attend, the timetable is ‘open’ and can therefore match whatever requirements course participants agree upon.
