Learn how to deal with an assessment centre and get tips on what the Civil Service look for in Fast Stream applicants.
From the Civil Service's wesbite:
The Fast Stream Assessment Centre (FSAC)
The FSAC provides an opportunity to show that you have the skills and personal qualities needed to be a fast streamer.
At the 1-day assessment you’ll be asked to do exercises reflecting important aspects of being a fast streamer, including:
- a group exercise
- a written policy recommendation exercise
- a leadership exercise
- a strengths-based interview
The exercises will measure your skills, abilities and motivation against the Civil Service competencies.
The Fast Stream Assessment Centre guide (PDF, 1.26MB, 23 pages) describes the exercises and tells you what to expect. It also explains what will happen after your assessment.
