Skills Assessment

Using the Institute’s proprietary gap-analysis based methodology to identify relevant skills and knowledge within a team or organisation and prioritise training needs. A unique online methodology focused on public engagement and consultation skills.

We are using gap-analysis to interpret self-assessment questionnaires. Individuals rate the relevance of specific skills to their job roles and assess their proficiency against a highly specified set of semantic anchors. The resulting data provides our clients with excellent information about the strengths and weaknesses of team members and instantly identifies priority training needs from across a cohort. The Institute has found that a comprehensive Skills Assessment can be of significant value in ensuring that engagement and consultation are consistently delivered to best practice standards.

Option 1:

To implement the service, the Institute appoints a specialist advisor who will

  1. Brief, the client on details of the methodology, to ascertain preferences and priorities
  2. Agree on a range of objectives for the assessment
  3. Consider which staff and contractors should be covered, and whether to vary the scope of the skill-reviewed against specific groups
  1. Work with the client to test the system and ensure participants complete the assessment
  2. Decide upon the skills to be reviewed, include client-specific attributes
  3. Interpret your results, relay these back and recommend follow-up actions

The output of the assessment is a comprehensive analysis based on one report per cohort and one per participant. Typically this assessment takes 8-10 weeks but yields a large amount of valuable information - as well as uncovering hidden uncertainties and doubt about what exactly is expected of different people.
