Many services follow a standard model for assessments; however some have their own preferences and organisational requirements. We meet these by adapting existing exercises for different uses and developing bespoke exercises based on client needs.
With greater freedoms regarding ADC format, many FRS are considering the use of an internal context in their assessments. The internal context is regarded favourably by candidates, who appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in a familiar context.
With VCA designing the presentation and group discussion exercises validity was increased, meaning that best practice was achieved whilst client requirements were also met.
