A vocational assessment is an in-depth assessment that aims to identify global strengths and obstacles likely to impact on an individual’s engagement in vocational activity.  It examines work history, skills, interests and considers psychosocial factors to develop a clear picture of relevant factors in the return to work process.  Our Vocational Assessment is communicated in a clear, detailed and comprehensive report with a series of clearly defined recommendations selected to directly address individual barriers, thus increasing an individual’s capacity for engagement in vocational activity.

2. Transferrable skills assessments

A detailed transferable skills analysis (TSA) is ideal for individuals who are not able to return to their previous employment due to acquired disability.  A TSA considers an individual’s skills, knowledge and aptitudes developed from previous work, study, training, home life, interests, and activities that can be applied to a new environment or vocation.  It can generate vocational ideas, expand vocational options, and facilitate a transition into suitable alternative employment.
