Introduction to an Essential Skills Needs Assessment (2012)

This tool offers career and employment counsellors a step-by-step process for conducting an informal Essential Skills (ES) needs assessment; guidance on supporting clients to make more informed decisions about training and job searches; and informal assessment questions for reading, writing, and numeracy skills.

This guide begins with an explanation of Essential Skills and the value of an ES needs assessment. This booklet is part of a tool developed by HRSDC, now called Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC),

The tool also includes assessment modules for reading, writing, and numeracy for complexity levels 1 and 2.

Each assessment module includes two client booklets, one for each complexity level, containing a series of assessment questions, and corresponding assessors’ booklets that include detailed responses for all assessment questions, and a section to document results and observations.

Assessment questions are based on typical workplace tasks performed in different occupations in Canada.
