    Hello everyone,*
    I got invited to an assessment centre at Highways England. I was wondering what is usually involved in an assessment centre? What do they usually test you on and are there interviews usually conducted afterwards? *
    Thanks *

    Obviously it varies it varies by assessement centre, but what can happen is for attendeeds to be divided into groups with maybe three or four different activities you rotate around to do. At least one is likely to be a group exercise, this could be where you are given a ficitional scenario and each group member represents someone and you have to argue your case. You may have a written test and it is likely you would have an interview at some point yes, so do be prepared for one.
