  2. What factors affect your organisation’s approach to recruitment and selection? (eg legal and regulatory framework, ethics, time, cost – give at least four factors which include consideration of the organisation’s business objectives and the economic environment). Explain a little about your organisation so that your answer can be understood. 
  3. What factors affect your organisation’s approach to employee resourcing and talent planning (give at least four factors including the organisation’s business objectives and the economic environment).

Preparatory Requirements 

The skills assessment for this unit is a mock interview. You should ensure that you can have access to a suitable location to film your mock interview. 

You should ensure that you have a suitable device to record the mock interview that will allow your tutor to fully observe both yourself and the person you are interviewing. 

You should practice with your recording equipment so that you are aware of the best position and settings for your video recording device. The Video Setting Tips document in the Student Community may help you. 

As a responsible professional it is your responsibility to ensure that all participants in the mock interview are happy for the session to be recorded. The video recording will not be shared with any external parties to ICS Learn other than for assessment purposes. You should not share it with any external parties yourself.

Please be aware that the video may take up a large amount of memory. You should follow the Video Setting Tips document in the Student Community to make the best use of your device during filming. 

You are recommended to use the Pebble Pocket app to upload your video as this will condense your video as it uploads it to PebblePad. You should use WiFi, where possible, to upload your video to avoid data charges. Follow the instructions in How to use Pebblepocket to upload your video to Pebblepad as an asset.

If you have some reason why you cannot record a video, please contact Student Services for advice.
