The ERS is included in the services we provide to our clients. Individuals take the ERS at their first appointment, or before a program commences.
The ERS generates an employment readiness report and a career action plan is developed with you in each session to support you in moving towards your career goals, such as gaining employent in a particular field or occupation or engaging in further education and training.
The ERS looks at various factors to determine your level of work readiness and will predict 80% of the time your ability to gain employment after 12 weeks once you self-assess as Minimally ready or Fully work ready.
Career assessments form an important part of our career counselling services. Giving insight into your interests, talents, values, aptitudes, skills and work readiness. The Employment Readiness Scale is a self assessment that allows you to check your work readiness in three key areas; Employability, Soft Skills and Challenges. We know that Employers hire based on the strength of your soft skills and it is often difficult to identify how strong you are in these areas, it is also helpful to reflect on the types of barriers and challenges that may be impacting your ability to find and keep work. This is where the ERS, an online self-assessment tool can help you to identify where you need the most help and create targeted actions that support you to move towards your career goals.
"Work Ready" means that with little or no assistance you can find, get and keep an appropriate job, as well as be able to manage transitions to new jobs, as needed.
