The assessment centre has four parts: 1) a series of small 20 minute exercises surrounding possible scenarios, 2) a presentation that is given and prepared in the room before being presented to one member of the interview team, 3) a presentation of ideas between two of you followed by a question and answer session, 4) a strengths-based interview, not focused on any previous experience.
