Talent Assessment Training

Psychometric Training

Accredited Psychometric Assessment Courses

Although interviews, manager-led evaluations and performance metrics are all useful tools in gaining insight into your talent, they lack objectivity, accuracy, and the ability to predict potential.

Attending our Psychometric Training will give you a toolkit to understand the underlying personality characteristics, capabilities, motivators, skills and potential to predict an individual’s "on-the-job" performance – whether the person is a new employee or you are considering them for development or promotion.

Many of these courses enable registration for the British Psychological Society (BPS) Level A or Level B Certificate in Occupational Testing: see course descriptions below for more information.
