“ What can I expect at the assessment day? Will I be assessed on any specific finance topics? What can I do to prepare? ”

Everything you need to prepare for your assessment centre is in your briefing note. Make sure you are familiar with the healthcare leadership model & the current challenges facing the NHS. Our Facebook page has lots of helpful tips on preparing for assessment centres. Good luck

Thankfully there is no assessment of your financial competence! You are assessed alongside other specialisms, in the same activities. Spend time reflecting on your skills and how you interact with people. Think critically about your strengths and development areas. Good luck!

Just to add to what Becky said, you wont be specifically tested on financial competence. The assessment day is designed to measure how you perform on certain tasks and how you approach certain situations. Good luck!

Candidates for all the programmes are assessed together, and the Assessors don't know which scheme you have applied for! Think about the Leadership Model, your values and motivation and show the assessor team how you work, both alone and with others.
