Assessment and goal setting is an integral part of workforce development. It correlates directly with longer-term retention outcomes, and, when administered correctly, it offers practitioners feedback to help sharpen their approach to preparing job seekers for education and career aspirations.
Throughout this training, practitioners will learn about assessment strategies best suited for job seekers participating in workforce development programs with a focus on strengths-based assessments and career coaching assessments and how to utilize these for short and long-term goal setting.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Think like an “assessor;”
- Determine which assessment methods, strategies and tools best suit a particular situation;
- Use results to plan more effective workshops that enhance participants’ learning; and
- Identify job seeker potential and determine the most effective development solutions to ensure they reach their potential.
