A battery of tests designed for use in the assessment of non-managerial staff including technical, operator or apprentice staff.
This battery includes:
Verbal ComprehensionTest (VCT) - measures the ability to follow and understand work-related verbal data.
Numerical Reasoning Test (NRT) - measures the ability to work with financial, numerical and graphical data.

KCP’s Simulation Activity Series has been designed for use in assessment, development and
Drawing on over 45 years’ experience in both the public and private sectors, all our activities
are based around modern, realistic scenarios that provide participants with the opportunity to
demonstrate samples of their typical behaviour and skills at work.
Group Activities - research consistently demonstrates that group activities are strong predictors of work behaviour, particularly in relation to interpersonal characteristics such as leadership, influencing style and team sensitivity. For this reason, all our activities major on interpersonal rather than cognitive assessment criteria, although some are capable of exploring business awareness, problem solving or innovation.
E-Tray Activities/Situational Judgement - these are best used to explore cognitive competences such as planning, strategic and operational awareness, problem solving and decision making. We recommend that wherever possible, assessors interview participants after the exercise to obtain a richer understanding of the thought processes that informed responses.
