Assessments

Construction companies and training schools may need to determine if journeyworkers and apprentices have skills gaps that may be the underlying cause for low performance from workers or trainees. We conduct assessments of workers and design products that practice Essential Skills.

Services

  • Assessing selected workers or apprentices at your company for foundational skills gaps in Reading, Document Use, Numeracy, and Oral Communication skills gaps.
  • Interviewing workers, supervisors, and contractors as part of the assessment process.
  • Recommending and designing a workshop or program to address skills gaps as part of our assessment.

Products

  • Paper-based assessments that practice Reading, Document Use, and Numeracy levels of trainees preparing for trades training or trades-specific assessments.
  • Prep Guides for specific trades to practice Reading, Document Use, and Numeracy skills.
