Some organisations prefer not to use full ADC exercise toolkits. Exercises can be used on their own, i.e. just the In-Box, but it is important to note that not all competencies will be examined twice as recommended by best practice guidelines, unless all three exercises are used.
New exercises or alternative versions
New toolkits/ exercises can be designed on request. Existing exercises can be updated or parallel versions created on request.
Existing exercises can be used in combination with alternative exercises (i.e. not all three exercises in a toolkit used together). Please contact us to discuss alternative uses (e.g. a roleplay to be used in association with an internally designed presentation or interview) or request the design of your preferred exercises to be used with existing ones.
Exercises can be used ‘in-band’ as well as between managerial levels. For instance, our inbox exercises work well as part of an assessment (often also involving an interview) from crew to watch manager or station to group manager.
Each of these exercises assesses a number of the competencies/ personal qualities and attributes (PQAs) listed below. Specific detail of which competencies are assessed by which exercise can only be supplied to HR/ L&D/ ADC Management professionals on request. This is to maintain the confidentiality of exercise content and criteria.
