The Star Community Academy is always looking at ways to support young people in the community to grow and develop skills that can be useful in their careers. One example of this is the range of Mock Assessment Centre case studies that have been developed to give participants a chance to experience a corporate assessment centre.
Star facilitated one of these sessions for Eastbury Community School’s Sixth Form on the 6th of July 2016. The day started with a briefing for both the students and the USPIRE Champions who took part in the day, followed by the 2 hour task.
In groups the students were asked to work together to anaylse a set of information and present back to USPIRE Champions on a commercial decision based on the information they were given.
