Vocational Counselling can help individuals identify ideal and realistic job options best suited to them, by assessing their strengths and skills. This information aids them when searching for and securing suitable work. Weaknesses and lack of skills are also identified as potential areas for future development or modification.

The benefits of using vocational counselling:

  • Improves the quality of your career exploration
  • Gives you relevant and useful knowledge about your interests and skills
  • Creates a workable plan for planning your employment future
  • Provides skills for you to improve your employability

Meeting with a vocational counsellor can help you better manage your journey through life, learning and work. You will have the opportunity to explore options that will assist you in making informed decisions about potential career pathways.

Vocational Assessments

Identify the job options most suited to you

Employee completing a vocational assessment

A Vocational Assessment is a comprehensive evaluation that helps vocational counselors investigate and assess an individual’s work profile. The assessment involves analysis of transferable skills, employment history, training and education as well as their personal interests.
The assessment can be very helpful in identifying the more suitable job options they should pursue. This in turn helps them to actively achieve their employment goals and enjoy deeper job satisfaction.

What happens during a vocational assessment?

During a vocational assessment, the client and counsellor will explore the client’s:

  • Life history
  • Education
  • Work history
  • Hobbies and interests
  • Personality
  • Likes and dislikes
  • Personal circumstances
  • Health

An analysis of all these factors will help in determining the job options the client should pursue.
