Assessment Center Training for Intercultural Youth
For the fifth time in a row interpool held a two-day assessment center training for 20 interested students with an immigrant background. The aim was the scholars an opportunity to participate in a fictitious assessment center and to learn what how they would act and present themselves there. Comprising one full day, participants discussed in groups, prepared mini-presentations and were interviewed by interpool staff. The second day was devoted to the feedback sessions. Quite extensively, interpool spoke to the students about how they felt in the exercises, how they were observed and evaluated and why, and what they could do better in the future.”
"For us it is always a welcome change and a lot of fun to work with such versatile interests and motivated young people," says Anne Schwarz, Senior Consultant at interpool.

"Those were two days filled with experience in Berlin. The Intercultural Assessment Center training was very instructive for the START scholarship program, because we have a lot to learn about the composition of ACs, the right approach, and all expectations," says Afanwi Niba, Officer training program START Foundation.
