The Nine Essential Skills: What's next?
Testing your own skill level
Over the past nine issues of the ASWA newsletter, we have looked at each essential skill, explored why each is important and offered examples and links to more information.
So now that you know what they are, what next?
How about a test to see where you stand? The Aboriginal Skills Group can help you with that. Visit their website, fill in a quick form, and they will help you through the skills assessment process.
With their online Essential Skills website, you can also find out which Essential Skills you need for specific jobs and get a learning plan that's custom-made for you, so you can target only the areas where you need to build skills!
There's also a helpful user guide to help you find your way around.
Once you are signed in you will be directed to the online Essential Skills assessments which you can complete at your own pace in your own time.
