I have been invited to attend a civil service assessment centre. I've never had to do one of these days before. I currently work for civil service in the equivalent of an HEO role but it is a technical profession so I only had to pass an application and standard interview for my current job.
My 2 questions are to people who have passed assessment centres previously (current civil servants or people who passed fast stream/other civil service assessment centres last year):
1) Did you do any practice tests prior to the day?
2) If so, which test providers did you find most beneficial?
Many thanks in advance for your help.

I wouldn't worry too much if you are already an HEO grade.
The assessment centre will ask you to perform in three tasks, all of which are supposed to be in a work like environment. You already have that experience, so have more skills that many others who sit the same assessment center. Best advice I can give you is to treat it like a new job, at HEO grade, and deal with the tasks in that mindset.
I'm assuming you have already been by now, but if not - that is my advice.
If you have attended, I hope it went well
