How do I know if I need a Vocational Assessment?
There are no universal signs that identify when a Vocational Assessment is needed, but they are typically helpful if you:
- Have a learning, developmental or physical disability
- Are having difficulty deciding on post-secondary options
- Are unsure of the right career path
- Would like to change careers but are unsure of the right fit
- Need to return to work after an accident or injury
If you often think “I wish I knew what I wanted to do,” or need help identifying what you’re able to do, a Vocational Assessment could be right for you.
What will a Vocational Assessment tell me?
A Vocational Assessment will help you find a job you love by identifying your strengths, interests and career options.
Specifically, our process identifies:
- Transferable skills
- Vocational interests
- Academic abilities
- Suitable occupations
At the end of the assessment, you will have a report that clearly identifies jobs that match your skills, interests and abilities.
How long does a Vocational Assessment take?
To make sure we build accurate learning and skills profiles, we split our assessments into three-hour sessions that last three days. Each assessment is tailored to suit your individual needs, however most assessments follow a similar path:
You complete tests designed to discover your academic abilities, such as reading, writing and literacy. These tests are designed to determine your learning strengths and challenges.
We assess your skills and aptitudes with “hands-on” tests that measure your motor skills, physical abilities, behavioral observations and interests. These tests are designed to identify your employment skillset and interests.
Feedback and Review
We review the results of the tests with you, and give you the opportunity to provide feedback to the assessor. Our team will explain the tests results to you in detail, and answer any questions you may have.
At the end of session 3, you will have:
- A detailed profile of your academic abilities
- A clear understanding of job options that match your aptitudes
- A list of specific jobs and occupations that match your learning profile and skillset
After you’ve had the chance to review the assessments with our staff, we create your final report. Each report is usually between 10-15 pages and contains the complete results of your vocational assessments, as well as recommendations for jobs that are matched to your skills and aptitudes.
Most clients receive their final report one to two weeks after completing the Feedback and Review stage.
